Displaying prices in different currencies

If you sell worldwide, you probably want your customers to see the prices in your store in their native currency so that it’s easier for them to understand the cost of a product. In this case, you can use apps from the Ecwid App Market: the Currency Converter app or the Auto Currency Switcher app. Both apps automatically convert your prices and show them in the customer’s currency.

Converting currency with the Currency Converter app

The Currency Converter app converts your store's currency to your client’s native currency based on their location. If needed, customers can select another currency right in your storefront and see the recalculated prices immediately:

The main features of the Currency Converter app are:

  • It has about 130 currencies that your customers can select from
  • Fully automated. The app detects the customer’s country and automatically converts all the prices into their native currency
  • Easy to use for your customers. The app provides a convenient way to switch the currencies in your storefront
  • The rates are always up to date. The exchange rates are automatically updated, so they are always correct
  • Easy to adjust. You can choose whether the currency selector will be displayed in the storefront or hide prices in the original store currency. It's also possible to select currencies that will be used in your store for conversion.

Price: $4.49 per month, and there is a free trial.

To use the app:

  1. From your Ecwid admin, go to Apps → App Market.
  2. Find the Currency Converter app and click Install. The app will automatically define the country of the buyer and convert all the prices into their native currency.
  3. In the Settings → Currency Converter, you can set up how the currency converter is displayed in your store, specify the price format and choose the currencies that will be available for converting prices on the storefront.
The app only displays the prices in multiple currencies. At checkout, your customers will pay in the main currency of your store. You can set it in your Ecwid admin, go to Settings → General → Regional Settings.

Converting currency with the Auto Currency Switcher app

The Auto Currency Switcher app converts the prices in your store based on the site visitor's location. The customer will see the price in their currency. For example, if you have all prices in US dollars, and your customer is from the UK, they will see prices in pounds:
