Shopmatic Multi-Currency feature

What is the Shopmatic multi-currency feature?

The Shopmatic multi-currency feature helps to make your webstore ecstatically more appealing to your customers, by providing them a means to browse your goods and services with a currency that they are more familiar with.

Tip: If you are selling internationally, you will need to enable a payment gateway that can accept international payments. By default, domestic payment gateways can only accept domestic transactions. Don’t forget to enable international shipping too!

Can my customers change the currency displayed?

Yes, your customers can switch the currency displayed on your webstore from the top right corner. However, once a customer has already moved to the checkout stage, they will no longer be able to switch the currency.

What currency will my customer actually pay me with?

Your customers will still actually pay you in your home currency. By default, domestic payment gateways can only accept domestic transactions. If you are selling internationally, you will need to enable a payment gateway that can accept international payments.

Example 1. Singapore-based seller, being visited by a United States-based buyer.

Example 2. India-based seller, being visited by a Singapore-based buyer.

How do I enable this feature?

From the main drop-down menu, click on Setup, and then on Multi-currency

Next, toggle the radio button to enable the Multi-currency feature

Next, select the currencies that you would like to make available to your customers
(Tip: Try to select no more than 8 currencies)

How is the currency calculated?

The rates are taken daily from Open Exchange Rates Ltd and are automatically updated.

What is the currency format used?

The currency symbol (eg. $, ¥, €, £) in front of all your products on the product pages will be displayed. Not the ISO code (eg. USD, YEN, EUR, GBP). The alignment of the symbol will also automatically be adjusted to be either left or right-aligned depending on the norm of each respective currency.

How does the multi-currency feature affect different customers?

Based on the location of your customer they will see the most relevant currency. For example, if your customer is visiting from the USA, the platform will pick this up and show American Dollar as a currency.
This will only happen if you have enabled the respective currencies, otherwise, it will show your default home currency. 

Which currencies are supported?

We currently support over a hundred currencies. You can toggle on/off the currencies you want to show to your customers.
