The Habbo Exchange, also known as the Exchange, is the method used to transform your credits into a tradeable currency. You can for example exchange one Credit from the Shop but it will cost you two Credits. This is because of the so-called Credit Tax. Habbo also gives users the option of purchasing five Bronze Coins for six Credits, and ten Bronze Coins for 11 Credits. This option was introduced by Habbo in response to the general uproar concerning the Credit Tax following it's introduction.
Exchanging credits from Shop can also be a smart method of buying furniture cheaper. Once people purchase new items from the Shop, the price goes down quite drastically. This means that it is sometimes better to exchange credits into a tradeable currency and buy the piece of furni for a lower price.
At first Habbo Exchange was tradeable just like any type of furniture, but a recent update now means that any Credits a Habbo receives in a trade will be converted into Credits in their purse, and if they want to trade it to someone else they will need to buy the Credit Furni from the shop again.

Limited Edition Habbo Exchange
To expand the exchanging range of items on Habbo, limited kinds of exchanges are made available for players to purchase or gain from time to time. This originally began on the 21st February 2013 in the popular game in the Game Center, Fast Food, where players could win either a big or small ruby depending on where they finished on the leaderboard each week. After a while, this was removed due to the introduction of the game on other hotels and partly because the same players kept on winning.

Chinese Habbo Exchange
On Habbo.cn, the coins were worth 10x their value on other hotels. This was to accommodate the exchange rate for Chinese currency (in reality). Very few images of the Bronze Coin being worth 10C have survived, but catalogue icons for the other exchange items still remain. These coins were never meant to surface on Habbo.com (International) (due to them being a staff-only item), but a few of the Bronze Coins were accidentally given out as rewards for watching sponsored videos - they weren't redeemable. Here were the catalogue icons used in the Habbo Exchange on Habbo.cn:
|Bronze Coin||10 Credits|
|Silver Coin||50 Credits|
|Gold Coin||100 Credits|
|Sack of Coins||200 Credits|
|Gold Bar||500 Credits|
