Credit union members may purchase foreign currency in more than 100 currencies and pay by FSCC electronic debiting a checking, savings or line of credit account. The currency can be delivered to the member's home or office within 24 to 48 hours. According to eZforex, the average person buys $200 U.S. worth of currency for each day spent overseas.
