Product Description

Currency Switcher for WooCommerce 2.0.x/2.1 allows your Visitors to select in which currency they would like to see your prices, as well as complete transactions in such currency.

How it works

Once enabled, the Plugin will allow you to configure a list of the Currencies you would like to accept. Such Currencies will then appear in a list, displayed as a widget, which your Users can use to choose their preferred Currency. When a User selects a Currency, the shop will be both displaying prices and completing transactions in the new Currency. That is, the prices displayed on the shop will be the ones that the Client will pay upon completing the order.

This feature will enable your shop to receive payments in different currencies, thus reducing the costs deriving from currency conversions performed by the various Payment Gateways.  Also, Credit Card operators often charge a conversion fee when a payment is made in a currency different from the one for which the card was issued. This adds an extra cost on every purchase, and it can discourage prospective Clients. Giving your Visitors the possibility of paying in their Currency can help improving conversion.

Every order will store the Currency used to place it, so that both Shop Managers and Clients will be able to retrieve it and see how much they paid.

Please Note

Your ability to accept payment in each Currency will depend on your Payment Gateway and/or Payment Processing Company, so your Customers will need to complete their purchase in the appropriate Currency.

    Diego and the P2E team have filled a gaping hole in the e-commerce market with this plugin — and it really does what it says. The interface is very accessible in the back end and applying the filters for your clients is as simple as dropping in a widget to any widgetized area. I managed to tweak the CSS styling very easily to incorporate it into my theme.

    I’ve tested transactions into PayPal Standard and it passes the order in the currency selected in the front end. The other Woo (and WPEC) plugins don’t have this feature — excellent!

    Highly recommended and great support from Diego!

    Exactly the extension we needed to remove the need for a full WPML implementation just to transact in two currencies. We have it hooked up with Paypal and our developer forked Woo to send USD transactions to our US Stripe account, and CA transactions to our CA Stripe account. Seamless and perfect with this extension in place. A pre-sales question to Diego was answered quickly and very completely. Highly recommended.

    Awesome support and great product. This has really fixed what i was after, giving the customer a choice of currency I feel is important. The fact that it auto converts from USD, AU or whatever depending where you are located is a real bonus. Nice work and highly recommended!

    Hi
    What is the different between your plug-in and this plug-in:

      :

      Hi Jenny,
      The Currency Converter widget just alters the way prices are displayed, but this is just a cosmetic change. As the page you linked states: “with the Currency Converter widget, customers will still pay in your base currency. Prices are for display only”. The Currency Switcher, instead, allows customers to pay in the currency they have chosen. Also, the Currency Switcher implements several other features, such automatic currency selection based on Geolocation, entering prices manually, in different currency, for each product, setting custom exchange rates and markups, and so on. You can find more details on the product page, in the Key Features section. Thanks for your interest in the Currency Switcher.

    My base currency is Rial, which is not supported by Paypal. If I use your plugin to also sell in Euro, does it enable the use of Paypal in woocommerce?

    • 0 out of 5

      :

      Hi mohsen,
      Thanks for your enquiry. If you install the Currency Switcher, you can enable Euro as an additional currency. You will then be able to enable PayPal as a gateway for Euro (and other supported currencies). PayPal will still be disabled, though, for Rial, as the PayPal service itself does not process it.

    Hello Diego
    It seems it is a great plugin! Before I buy it, I need to know if the currency BGN (Bulgarian lev) is in the scope of the plugin.
    Thank you!
    Regards!

      Hi Veselina. The Currency Switcher can work with any currency, you will just have to make sure that you use a payment gateway that supports the currencies you would like to use. If you wish to add currencies that are not part of standard WooCommerce, you can easily do so as described in the following article: WooCommerce – Add a custom currency / symbol.

    :

    And just one more question: May I use it for more than one of my web applications after I have purchased it once?

    • 0 out of 5

      :

      Yes. The Currency Switcher is distributed under GPL, therefore you can use it on as many sites as you like. The only restriction applies to the free support, which covers one site per purchase.

    Best programmer and support i’ve seen so far in my life

    I did not expect him to answer so quick, in exact THREE MINUTES after i submitted a ticket
    He is very responsive and gave full attention to help me resolved the problems.
    Although it did not solved initially, he did not give up and reprogrammed specifically for me to work with other complicated softwares.

    Definitely a professional first class programmer.

      :

      Hi Terrance,
      The Currency Switcher can work with any currency, as long as an exchange rate is entered for it. Of course, the payment gateway(s) that you would like to use must also be able to accept it. To add a custom currency, simply follow the instructions on WooThemes site: WooCommerce – Add a custom currency/symbol.

    Hi! I just brought this awesome plugin. I’ve a question if it is possible to develop a currency switcher for the theme “Room 09″? If you follow this link: http://demo.yithemes.com/room09/
    You can see they have a language switcher in top right corner. I want to replace that with my currencies instead. Is this possible?

      Hi Emil,
      The look of the currency selector can be customised via CSS, and you can position it anywhere you like in your theme by calling its shortcode. For more information, please refer to our knowledge base: Currency Switcher Customisation.

      Hi Victor,
      In short, yes, the Currency Switcher allows you to accept any currency. You might have to add some of them to WooCommerce if they are not included in the core, but it’s a very easy task.

    Hello Diego,
    Thank you for this good plugin. Found you a few months ago through some search and forum discussion. We want to buy this plugin but require the following feedback:
    01. Our site will operate in https:// mode in some store pages. OpenExchange serves in http:// but have charges for https:// as you know. Is it same for WEBServiceex?
    02. If so, will we have to pay to any of these providers for https:// serving or there is any free alternative that could be incorporated with this plugin?
    Based on our experience, other feedbacks here and your caring responses, providing 5 stars before using it.
    Thanks & regards.

      Hi M.T. Rahman,
      Thanks for your enquiry. Please find the answers below:

      1. The fact that Open Exchange Rates uses HTTP won’t have an impact on your site, you can keep using HTTPS. The connection to Open Exchange Rates occurs in the background, your visitors won’t be affected and there won’t be any security issue. We do not recommend to use WebServiceX because it has become unreliable lately, we keep it in the plugin just for backward compatibility.
      2. Both providers can be used free of charge. With Open Exchange Rates you will just have to get a free API key from their website: https://openexchangerates.org/signup/free

    This is such a life saver, and something that really should be built-in to WooCommerce!

    It is, though, missing one small feature that would garner it a 5-star rating. When you configure the store currency, WC gives you the option to customise the positioning of the currency symbol – eg, in the UK the “£” goes before the amount, but in Sweden the “kr” goes after.

    I would like to see the same functionality in this plugin.

    Other than that, it’s pretty much perfect for my need!

      Hi Peter,
      Thanks for your feedback. The currency formatting was a feature we had in the list, which we had to postpone due to other high priority tasks. It will probably be released as an external plugin, so that only users who actually need it can install it. At the moment, we are focusing on improving the flexibility of the system implemented by the Currency Switcher (see the “Add-ons for the Currency Switcher” section in our shop), but we will definitely get back to it.

      Thanks again for your valuable feedback.

    Hi,
    I’m contemplating of buying this plugin but my concern is its compatibility with the current version of WPML and Woocommerce with its built-in currency_switcher. What are the working advantages of this plugin?

    • 0 out of 5

      :

      Hi Hari,
      The Currency Switcher works with WPML, but you would have to turn off the multi-currency feature as it will conflict with our plugin. Although I don’t know in detail how the WPML currency switcher works, I can tell you that one of the key features of our product is that it allows customer to complete orders in the desired currency (i.e. prices are not just displayed as a reference, they are used ). Also, it allows to specify prices manually for each product, rather than relying on exchange rates. There are several other important features, which you can find on the product page in the Key Features section. Should you have any further questions, please feel free to contact us. Thanks.

    Awesome plugin that has improved my site and made my customer experience so much better. The best and most cost effective currency switcher i’ve seen and easy to add to your site. Diego was also unbelievably helpful when I had any questions, I couldn’t recommend buying from him more.

    Not only does this plugin fill a gaping hole in the ecommerce market, but Diego’s quality of support is of an incredibly high caliber.

    The words, “This guy is a rock star!” have been said in reference to Diego several times around our office, and we sincerely mean it. You can purchase this plugin knowing that there is a great knowledge base and support available to help get you up and running.
