    I need to allow users to be able to click on a currency symbol which will convert all prices in the store and allow them to pay in that selected currency

    There is woothemes multi-currency widget but I don't think that actually let's users pay in the selected currency

    I also need this feature. Is it any plugin which can do it?

    Correct, multi-currency widget is only for the visual aspect of it. The checkout will still happen in the currency the store is set in. WooCommerce does not have a feature nor is there a WooCommerce plugin that does this right, in my opinion.

    WPML though, makes it possible and does a pretty good job.

    We also have it on our Roadmap for future releases, nothing planned yet though.

    Multicurrency is something important that I need too.

    Almost all my prices are in Euros.

    The problem is that we are also an agent for a UK college and we resell their courses in Spain. All their prices are in GBP and they refuse to give us a Euro price list.

    The problem is that I can't put this product in my catalog on a "fair" price basis. It would be really nice have to have a hidden value in GBP and a published daily calculated value in Euros that would go through to the cart. It ought to show something like (200 GBP) billed as 215 Euros.

    I needed the same feature and I ended up developing a plugin for WooCommerce, which I'll be using in my shop. I'm now doing the Beta Testing of it, then I will put it for sale.

    If anyone would be interested in getting an "early bird" discount to get the Beta version, just drop me a line. Of course, that would give access to the full version, when released (not to mention one year of free updates).

    Thanks everybody for the interest. I'm fixing a couple of bugs reported by my Beta Testers and I will publish the updated version later today. I will contact you all once it's ready to discuss the details of my offer.

    You will also be able to see the plugin in action on my live website, so you can see how it works and if it can be useful to you.

    I'll get back to you soon.

    I finally solved the issues that have been reported so far. If you wish to see the plugin in action, you can visit my shop.

    The WooCommerce plugin is not yet publicly available for purchase; please use the contact form on my website to register you interest in the Beta.

    @jayjayNZ, I thought it was possible to send a PM to the members of this site, but I see it's not. Sorry for the confusion about "dropping me a line".

    I would like to thank all the people who have contacted me to get access to the Beta version of the plugin. I didn't expect such a high volume of request, and I'm glad that my extension is proving itself useful. Thanks to their contributions, I've been able to address several issues before making the extension public.

    The plugin is now available in my shop, and it comes with support and one year of free upgrades. To celebrate the release, I posted a coupon code that gives you 15% discount on the extension.

    Again, thanks to all the people who contacted me for their contribution.

    @sarocksa There are already many Users who got my plugin, and none of them reported a fatal error so far.

    I would be happy to assist you in troubleshooting your issue, but I don't monitor this forum for support requests. Could you please contact me via the Support link on my site? I would just need to know a couple of details. Thanks.

    @daigo75

    Where does the currency exchange rate come from? Is it manual or auto from XE or other?

    Very interested in this plugin, thanks.

    @adrockmk2 The rates can be set manually, if desired, or set to be updated automatically from Open Exchange Rates of WebServiceX. For more information, please refer to the product page, or contact me using the contact form on my website (I don't monitor this thread often). Thanks.

    Is this plugin compatible with cache plugins like wp super cache?
    Thanks.

    @solagirl We used WP Super Cache initially, then we moved to W3 Total Cache, and in both cases the Currency Switcher works perfectly.

    Hi Diago75,

    Can we not place the converter on the products, or in the cart area? Or does it have to be in a widget, I ask because I need something like this but my site is full width without widgets.

    Thanks In advance.

    @brook1979 The currency selector has to be a widget, but you can place it anywhere you like by creating a small widget area. Doing it is very simple, you can find instructions in our knowledge base: https://aelia.freshdesk.com/support/solutions/articles/121618-i-would-like-to-add-the-currency-selector-widget-somewhere-in-my-theme-how-can-i-do-it-

    Daigo when a purchase is made in another currency it it automatically converted into your currency as a payment on the suppliers side?

    @loschinony I'm not sure I understand the question, but I will try to answer. When a User selects, for example, Euro as the currency, the order is paid to you in Euro (i.e. the transaction is carried in Euro until the end). Your payment processor must support the currency you choose to enable on the site.

    User would be customer or the business owner? Sorry for the confusion..

    an example of what I am talking about is that the customer purchases in their local currency and when the transaction is complete it is the currency of the business owner as a pay out.

    Additionally, I saw on the post that there is the ability with your plug-in to have a hidden value in in whatever currency i.e GBP as a basis for the price and i.e. Euros that would go to the customers cart as Euros.

    Thanks for your reply

    @loschinony With "User" I meant the customer. The pay out currency is the one selected by the customer, not the base one configured in WooCommerce. That is, if a customer switches to Euro, you will be paid in Euro. If he switches to GBP, you will be paid in GBP.

    Regarding your other query, there is no "hidden" value. You choose a base currency (e.g. GBP) and enter product prices in such currency, then you can enable additional currencies (e.g. USD and EUR). From that moment, prices in USD and EUR will be calculated automatically, using an exchange rate that you can set manually, or take from Open Exchange Rates.

    If you wish, you can also set a price manually in each currency for each product. That is, you can set a product price to 10 GBP, 20 USD and 20 EUR, thus ignoring the exchange rate entirely.

    I have an online logos store, any logo design sold just once so I did a special programming that works with PAYPAL - the product will be automatically out of stock when a customer buys it.

    Would love to get an explanation of how it works with PAYPAL, that is it
    can disrupt this process?
    I want to add the possibility of the Australian currency, Japanese and European.
    Thanks

    @LogoDesignOnline If your question is for me, please find the answers below:

    • Based on what you write, having multiple currencies and flagging the product as out of stock after purchase should be independent and not impact on each other. However, since it's a custom coded feature, it should be tested.
    • The Currency Switcher can support any currencies you like, as long as an exchange rate is entered for each.

    If you have any further questions, please use the contact form. This will allow to reply in a timely manner. Thanks.
