Receiving and making international payments

Hey folks.

So i just go a UBS business credit card basic recently, i wanted to get it in USD but its only available in CHF. My problem is i deal on an international basis with my business, online i make and receive payments in all currencies.

unfortunately the UBS charges a rate of 1.2% at each single transaction for a conversion. it would amount to a lot of money quickly

What would you guys recommend i do? Does anyone have experience in online businesses? The best way and cheapest to recieve and take payments? cheers

To make payments in other currencies use Transferwise or other similar services. To receive payments in my web shop I use Stripe & Paypal (although I may get rid of Paypal as Stripe is cheaper)

have you ever had to deal with chargebacks on paypal? thats the only thing stoping me from using it. i read a lot of nightmare stories of people getting scammed on it. would it be the same deal with stripe?
