Many features are limited in the free version. However, the product description includes the features in the pro version. I lost time, I felt tricked.

Thanks for this awesome plugin. Very useful for online merchants, but will be more awesome if you can add a drop-down functionality to the settings for merchants targeting a worldwide audience. Keep up the good work. Rated 5 Stars.
September 29, 2018
Awesome plugin very easy to use and supports unlimited currency options. Few suggestions: 1. it would be great if you could add option to write symbol our self instead of hard coding and forcing user to select from predefined symbols like in English site for saudi riyal we might write SAR or SR but plugin only has option to select ريال in arabic language. 2. Auto update currency exchange rate right now i have to manually click on get rate to update them. 3. Short code to show currency switcher as a drop down at any place we want in site
