 Currency Converter
Article It is possible to show your product prices in up to three other currencies other than the default. The alternative prices will be shown on your product and product detail pages below the main default price. Sales will always be processed in the default currency but it does provide a guide for international purchasers regarding the approximate price in their local currency.

On the main admin page you can set your own rates and change them when you like by filling in the rate field and selecting the currency of your choice from the drop down menu for symbols. This would have to be done regularly to keep up to date with currency fluctuations.

Alternatively it is possible to connect to our currency updater. This is currently a free service using the username (testuser) and password (testpw) but in the future there will be a monthly charge for connecting to our updated rates. Although updated regularly these will only ever be approximations and we strongly suggest that you make that clear on your store.
