You can now choose to pay your AWS bill with Canadian dollars. If your credit card provider currently charges you expensive fees for converting currency, choosing to be billed in your preferred currency may help you to reduce these costs. You can compare our rates, which are displayed on the Account Settings page of the AWS Billing Console, with your credit card statements to determine if using our currency conversion service would benefit you.

To take advantage of this new feature, all you need to do is to specify you would like to be billed in Canadian dollars using the AWS Billing Console. Once you've specified your preferred payment currency, your future monthly invoices will be converted to this currency. We'll display Canadian dollars in the billing console, and you can always change your preferred currency at any time.
