When buying foreign currency for ABC Bank customers, you should obtain the customer’s name, address, telephone number and determine the amount of foreign currency the customer would like (i.e. $100 U.S. worth of foreign currency or the value of $100 in foreign currency) and note this information on a foreign currency order form. When exchanging, determine the different types of foreign currency (i.e. Italian Lira, English Pounds, Swiss Francs, etc.) the customer wants to exchange, as each type of currency needs to be treated as a separate transaction.
