Payments Outside of Russia and Currency Conversion

If you buy sandwich in Moscow today and boots in Hong Kong tomorrow, it looks like the card details were stolen. In this case our Security Service may block the card to protect the funds.

If you do not want that to happen, tell us about your trip in advance. You can do it under your card settings.

Viewing card settings: navigate to the Bank Cards section and click on your card.

Important: if you are anonymous users, you can withdraw cash outside of Russia, but you cannot pay.

If you reside in other country than Russia, this rule still affects you:

  • you need to be identified to pay at stores (otherwise you can only withdraw cash)
  • all payments apply converting rubles into your local currency you pay in
  • you need to inform us when you leave the country you ordered your card to.
How currency conversion works

Yandex.Money card is a card in Russian rubles because Yandex.Money account is in rubles.

Whatever currency you pay in, rubles are deducted from your Yandex.Money account. The conversion made according to the MasterCard rate + 2% (view example).

In a day or two, an additional debit entry will appear in your History: a debit or credit of a small amount. This is usually a few dozens of rubles or even kopecks (depending on the payment amount). This is the exchange rate differential.

  1. The required amount is blocked on your card in the moment of the payment. The amount is calculated according to the conversion rate on the date of the payment.
  2. MasterCard processes payments for one-two business days. In the meantime, the conversion rate changes.
  3. The service deducts the amount calculated according to the up-to-date conversion rate: if the target currency become more expensive, the difference is deducted from your account, if it become cheaper, the difference is credited to your account.
What to do if you need to specify a Billing Address or something else

When you pay on non-Russian sites, you may be asked to provide supplementary information in addition to bank details.

  • Billing Address—home address.
  • Address 1—house number, apartment number, street. For instance: 1/11 Moskovskaya Street.
  • Address 2—optional field. You can specify a part of the city if you have several streets with the same name in your city.
  • State—county or region. For instance: Moscow or Moskovskaya Region.
  • ZIP or Postal Code—your postal code.
