Any addition to this will allow the customer to select “International” from any page on your cart and switch to a different country’s currency.

  • Title: The name of the currency. This is the terminology offered to the customer to select for this currency.
  • Rate: This allows you to adjust the rate at which you observe this currency.
  • Decimals: The number after the decimal point.
  • Symbol Left: This is the currency symbol that will present to the left of the price digits. If you are unable to produce the symbol necessary from your keyboard you can also enter the HTML Entity code for the symbol you would like.

Note: Whichever currency you select as default will be the one that customers will first see when they arrive at your website. You can select a currency other than USD, make it default, then delete USD to have your website offer only one non-USD currency. 

How Customers Can Choose a Currency

Once you added more Currencies on your website, a new link: "International" will appear on your site's footer. Once customers click on that link, they will be redirected to the International Settings page where they can choose from the Currency options that you offer.
