Explanation:
In the foreign exchange market, you say "the buying exchange rate/the selling exchange rate" to differentiate them. In the market lingo, the dealers ask "what's the buy price/what's the sell price???". We are talking about foreign currencies, cash wise or via transfer into an xxx account.-
See the Alcaraz Varó Hughes Financiero, pages 839/840, "compra" and 1248, "venta".-
