I went into settings to see how to use it. There's no option to set Canadian currency, or instructions on how to use it. I thought it was just going to show the listed prices for the boardgame but if I have to go to the site profile and set it up, may as well just manually type it in myself and skip the plugin. Also, the 5-Star review is from the plugin author, so it's a fake review
