How do I change the Default Currency used?
To change the default currency used by your store, do the following:-
- First tap or click Ecommerce from the menu;
- Then tap or click the General Options tab;
- Now, under Currency Options, select the Default currency you want to use;
- Finally tap or click Save Changes.
The value shown next to each currency is the current exchange value between it and your current currency. If you want to allow customers to change the Currency used while shopping and to learn more about the exchange rates used, see How do I offer or stop multi-currency shopping and checkout?
You should avoid changing your default currency after you have created products and your store is live. If you do change your default currency be sure to manually amend your existing product and product option prices, as these will now not have the correct base value. For example, your default currency is GBP - British Pound and you have a product with a value of £50.00, if you then change your default currency to USD - US Dollar the product will be $50.00 which would be incorrect.
