On the date of hire, the placement fee is determined based on the information provided by the employer. At the moment a hire is logged in the RecruitiFi system, the conversion rate between USD and the foreign currency the hire was logged in is recorded based upon Google Finance's conversion rate. The conversion rate is then applied to the salary of the placement. Using this converted salary we calculate the placement fee for the employer, and a payout amount for you in USD.
We understand that over time conversion rates may change, impacting the value of your payout. However, since the service is provided at the time a hire is logged, the conversion rate must be recorded at that point in time and the payout amount solidified.
You can always check what your placement fee has been calculated as by clicking on your earnings in the top right of the screen. This will take you to a table of all your hires where you can see your past and future payouts and their amount in USD.
