By default, X-Cart supports two types of currencies - transactional currency and display currency.

Transactional (or default) currency is the currency in which the prices and all product-related costs in the store are set and kept in the database and in which all transactions process in X-Cart.

Display currency is the currency in which prices display to customers in the storefront. X-Cart can have different display currencies setup, provided the Multicurrency add-on is installed and enabled. Otherwise, all prices and product-related costs display in the default currency configured in the store.

To configure your store’s default currency settings:

1. Go to the Currency page of your store’s Admin area (Store Setup > Localization).

2. Use the settings in this section to adjust the default currency parameters for your country:

  • Hide trailing zeros in fractional part: If this option is enabled, the zeros in the fractional part will be hidden for prices with decimals, e.g. a price of $1234.00 will display as $1234; at the same time, a price of $1234.56 will display as is - $1234.56.

  • Store currency: Select the currency you want to use in your store from the list.

  • Format: Set the appropriate format for the price representation.

  • Prefix: The field is defined automatically based on the chosen

  • Store currency field value.

  • Suffix: The field is defined automatically based on the chosen Store currency field value.

3. Click Save changes to submit the currency settings.
