Your currency option[s] depend on your account region. In EU, for example, players can use Euros, GBP, and RUB. In certain regions where game realms and servers are shared by players in multiple countries, you have the option to choose a preferred currency.
Different currencies are loaded separately, and cannot be transferred, converted, or used interchangeably. To see which currency options are available in your region, log in to Battle.net to add balance.
There are limits to how much you can store in your Battle.net Balance. You will receive an error if your Battle.net Balance purchase would take you over that limit.
