How we display buy back rates

You might notice the South Korean won rates shown here are different to the South Korean won rates offered by currency suppliers on our comparison pages. The rates are actually the same but are just presented in different ways. When we talk about the KRW / GBP exchange rate, we show the KRW rate relative to the pound so a rate of 0.0005982 literally means 1 KRW = 0.0005982 GBP.

However, UK currency suppliers choose to show this rate in terms of the amount of South Korean won you would need to exchange to receive 1 GBP, so (1 /) 0.0005982 becomes 1672. Or put another way, 1672 KRW = 1 GBP. The two rates are interchangeable but currency suppliers prefer to show the second rate which they call the buy back rate.
