If you press the menue icon you can change the settings for language and currency, but USD is not available for an Interrail account, only EUR and GBP. 

Have you created a Eurail account and not an Interrail account?

THis seems lately one of the widest confusions, for the Brits-possibly as they seem now completely dazed off by a thing named brexit. As long as the pass is there=50 yrs, and this has never changed, you have to use INTERrail, EUrail is for those from far over the oceans.

Main difference: On INTrl you are only allowed 1 trip OUT and back IN again-for rather obvious reasons the super-expensive BritRail (new name very year) will not want their own people to misuse the system
