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

Transactional currency is the default store currency that you use to set all prices and product-related costs and record them in the database. Your online store also uses the default currency to process transactions.

The display currency is how 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 are displayed in the default currency configured in the store.

To configure your store’s default currency settings:

  1. First, 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 mode 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.
