Customers get confused when prices are in a different currency than their home country. This adds friction to a sale because the customer needs to figure out how much it costs in their currency.
If you have a modern theme like Debut and you are using Shopify Payments, you can easily add multiple currencies by going to Shopify Admin > Settings > Payment Providers.
Click on the Manage button next to Shopify Payments and scroll down to the currency section. Add the currencies you would like and save the settings.
Now you should be able to go back to your store and change the currency (typically in the top-right for most themes). This currency will work all the way through checkout and on all your product pages.
This is a great solution for most people with a modern theme.
If you don’t have a modern theme or you want to change the currency based on geolocation, you will have to use an app or code it yourself.
The problem with most apps is that they don’t work in checkout – so your currency will revert to the store’s base or default currency in checkout.
There are several apps that offer currency conversion based on geo-location:
- BEST Currency Converter
- Auto Currency Switcher
- Coin Currency Converter
