How we display buy back rates

You might notice the Chinese yuan rates shown here are different to the Chinese yuan 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 CNY / GBP exchange rate, we show the CNY rate relative to the pound so a rate of 0.1118 literally means 1 CNY = 0.1118 GBP.

However, UK currency suppliers choose to show this rate in terms of the amount of Chinese yuan you would need to exchange to receive 1 GBP, so (1 /) 0.1118 becomes 8.941. Or put another way, 8.941 CNY = 1 GBP. The two rates are interchangeable but currency suppliers prefer to show the second rate which they call the buy back rate.
