Turkish currency

**Is the present currency lira ?? Do they readily accept charge cards??
Thanks in advance for any feedback.

Several years back, they adjusted the value between old Turkish Lira and New (Yeni) Turkish Lira. $1 US = 2 lira, so divide prices in half to estimate dollars. I have seen some unscrupulous vendors quote rates that didn't work out to a fair price in either the old or new system (e.g., a simple shirt for 400 lira outside of Ephesus).
