A store admin can manage the list of currencies available for display in the storefront on the Currencies page of the store's Admin area (Store setup -> Localization). Each currency comes with several properties that can be adjusted if required.

A list of currencies may look as follows:

A store admin can edit the following properties:

  • Format: A format of the currency representation in the storefront. To change the format, a store admin should use the options from the related drop-down.

  • Prefix: A currency prefix. The value is defined automatically for each currency. If it is necessary to change the value, click inside the field and type the required value instead of a predefined one.

  • Suffix: A currency suffix. The value is defined automatically for each currency. If it is necessary to change the value, click inside the field and type the required value instead of a predefined one.

  • Rate: A currency exchange rate. The value can be either preset provided the "Online currency rates service" and "Currency converter API key" general addons settings are configured accordingly or set up manually by a store admin. To change the exchange rate, click inside the field and enter the value required.

  • Countries: Each new currency is added with a pre-set list of countries it applies to. A store admin can add or remove the countries from the list assigned to a currency by clicking into the ‘Countries’ field and choosing the necessary countries from the drop-down. Each country can be assigned to one currency only.

A store admin can also:

  1. Re-order currencies in the list using the Cross icon to drag-n-drop (this will affect the order of currencies display in the currency drop-down in the storefront):

  3. Change the default currency for the store using a special selector:

    If you change the default store currency, don’t forget to update the rates using the ‘Update Rates’ button to display the prices correctly.

  4. Delete currencies from the list using the Trash icon opposite a currency in question:

Use the "Save changes" button to make the new settings active.
