Currency Switcher for WooCommerce WordPress plugin extends WooCommerce by adding currency switcher to your shop’s frontend. This is an extended version of free Currency Switcher for WooCommerce plugin.
- Automatic currency exchange rates updates.
- Prices on per product basis.
- Currency by country (i.e. customer’s IP).
- Option to revert to original currency on checkout.
- Various currency switcher placement options.
There are four settings sections:
First option in General setting section lets you enable/disable the plugin functionality. It may be helpful if you want to fill plugin’s settings without affecting your site’s frontend.
Next option lets you turn on per product pricing. After enabling the checkbox, new settings will be added to each product’s edit page. There you can set price directly for each product without using exchange rates.
If you need to revert to default currency on checkout, you can enable it here. That is, currency switcher will work as usual, until your customer reaches the checkout page, then currency will be changed back to you shop’s default. This is helpful if you want to display prices in different currencies, but need to charge customer in single currency only (for example, because of limitations of your payment gateway).
General section will also let you select if you want switcher to be placed on single product pages. You can choose between three different switcher looks – radio buttons, select dropdown or links. To put the currency switcher on frontend you can also use switcher widget, shortcodes or functions. Shortcodes:
Next option lets you set rounding options. You can choose between no rounding, round, round up and round down. If rounding is enabled, you can also set rounding precision here.
Last option allows you to disable currency switcher functionality on some selected URI. Enter one URI per line. Leave blank if not sure.
Currencies settings section lets you select which currencies you want to be in switcher. This is the settings section you should visit first. Shop’s default currency is added to switcher automatically, so you don’t need to select it. Number of additional currencies is limited to 2 additional currencies in free version (so 3 total with shop’s default currency) and is unlimited in Pro version. After you change the number of additional currencies, click Save changes button. After that new settings fields will appear, in which you can select which additional currencies to add. If, for example, you select 4 additional currencies, then your switcher will consist of 5 currencies total, that is, your shop’s default plus 4 additional currencies.
In Pro version we’ve added Auto Generate PayPal Supported Currencies button, which will automatically add all 25 currencies supported by PayPal payment gateway (this number will be 24 if your shop’s default currency is supported by PayPal).
In exchange rates section you can set exchange rates and (optionally) time when the rates should be updated. You can choose between:
- Enter Rates Manually
- Update Automatically Every Minute
- Update Automatically Hourly
- Update Automatically Twice Daily
- Update Automatically Daily
- Update Automatically Weekly
If you have enabled Currency Switcher on per Product Basis in General section, products which have their pricing set on per product basis won’t use exchange rates. So if, for example, you are going to use per product pricing for all your products, you can leave exchange rates values set to default 1.
You can also Update All Exchange Rates Now or Reset All Rates with single button click.
Near each currency pair there is also button to grab current exchange rate for the pair. Don’t forget to Save changes if you click this button.
Exchange rates are updated from Yahoo.com server.
Currency Countries (by IP)
This section lets you display currency by customer’s country. Customer’s country is calculated by customer’s IP. That is, if new customer visits your shop from some country, corresponding currency is automatically selected. If you won’t display currency switcher on frontend, then your customer won’t be able to change the currency manually, so this plugin can be used as “price and currency by country” plugin.
You can also Auto Assign Countries or Reset Countries with single button click.
