Multi-Currency (135 Currencies)
Stripe supports processing payments in 135+ currencies, allowing you to sell your event or ticket sales in your preferred currency. The settlement currency will be in your local base currency, and you will receive the payment in your local base currency while it allows you to accept payment with a choice from 135 currencies.
2. Selling with Local vs Foreign Currency
If you are selling with foreign currency (non-local currency), Stripe will immediately convert the foreign currency's payment into local currency based on the current foreign exchange rate.
You can link your Stripe account setting on EventNook, and you will receive the payment from ticket sales directly to your Stripe account.

6. How to Refund to buyers
In Refund, refund payment is easy and straightforward. Stripe allows both partial and full refunds to your buyers from their payment admin dashboard.
You can refund charges made to your account, either in whole or in part. Refunds use your available Stripe balance—this doesn't include any pending balance. If your available balance doesn't cover the Refund amount, Stripe debits the remaining amount from your bank account.
If Stripe can't debit the remaining amount from your bank account, your refunds may go into a pending status until you add funds to your Stripe balance. You can view a list of all your pending refunds in the Dashboard.
If the original charge underwent currency conversion, the refunded amount converts back using the same process. There are no fees to refund a charge, but the fees from the original charge aren't returned.
Stripe submits refund requests to your customer's bank or card issuer. Your customer sees the refund as a credit approximately 5-10 business days later, depending upon the bank. Once issued, a refund cannot be cancelled. Disputes and charge-backs aren't possible on credit card charges that are fully refunded.
