Frequently Asked Questions
I am not a developer. Can I install Mercado Pago Checkout?

How do international payments work on Mercado Pago?
It's possible to accept payments with international debit and credit cards with Mercado Pago. The shopper always pays the product's price on the sellers currency, and the conversion is done by the financial institution responsible for issuing the payment. The seller always receives the financial transaction in their local currency, or in other words, in the currency registered on their Mercado Pago account.
