Welcome to the Global Iris Resource Centre

Global Iris is Global Payments' online payment processing solution. The purpose of this site is to provide you with all the information you need to start processing payments using Global Iris.  

Introducing Our New Dynamic Currency Conversion (DCC) Feature


Attract international cardholders* to your business by offering them the choice to pay in their home currency! There’s no added complication for you; your account is credited with the original Sterling price. Regardless of how many HomeCurrencyPay transactions you do, you'll receive one simple credit on your monthly invoice for all commission earned. So you’ll gain a competitive edge at no effort or cost to you.

HomeCurrencyPay on Global iris can currently support 12 currencies (and this will soon expand to 32) so you’ll be able to offer this service to your customers from around the world. Further information on the currencies can be found on our website at www.globalpaymentsinc.co.uk under 'Products & Services' followed by 'HomeCurrencyPay'.

You and your staff must be fully trained on how to offer HomeCurrencyPay to your international cardholders. To help you to do this we’ve put together a short training module that can be found on our website at www.globalpaymentsinc.co.uk. It's on the 'HomeCurrencyPay' page, under 'Products & Services'. So that you can make the most of HomeCurrencyPay, please make sure you take the time to do the training as soon as possible. It won’t take you long to complete!
