multi-currency support for your Shopify store easily in 4 steps

Multi-currency checkout is the best way to open your Shopify store to international shoppers. In this article, we’ll cover how to add the support of multiple currencies within 4 simple steps.

Even if you don’t use Shopify Markets, the information in this post is relevant to you. All Shopify merchants will soon be able to make use of the company’s new Shopify Markets feature.

Add a currency selection to your online store’s theme after editing your Shopify Payments settings to allow you to sell in multiple currencies.

Conduct market research to gauge the experience of your customers before beginning to sell items in several currencies. Shopify allows you to sell products in several currencies by supporting two different currency values—the shop currency and the customer currency.

Shopify Payments supports multi-currency.

When you sell to more than one country or region, your customers can look at prices in your store, pay for their orders at checkout, and get refunds in their own currency. You can choose to have prices automatically converted based on the current market exchange rate, or you can do it yourself using a different exchange rate.

Depending on the Shopify plan you choose, you can use features for international pricing to set prices for different countries and regions. If your store is on the Shopify plan or higher, you can set price adjustments and rounding rules for different countries or regions. Your store needs to be on the Shopify Advanced plan if you want to set prices by country or region.

If you sell in more than one currency, you can add a country selector to your theme so that customers can choose their home country or region and see the price in their own currency.

Multi-currency selling steps

Step 1: Set up Shopify Payments so that you can use more than one currency

You can make your store accept more than one currency by adding the countries and regions for each currency you want to accept.

Desktop

  1. From your Shopify admin, go to Settings > Payments.
  2. In the Shopify Payments section, click Manage.
  3. In the Countries/regions section, click Add country/region.
  4. Select the country or region that you want to support from the list of supported countries and regions.
  5. Click Add country/region.

iOS/ Android

  1. From the Shopify app, go to Store > Settings.
  2. Under Store settings, tap Payments.
  3. In the Shopify Payments section, click Manage.
  4. In the Countries/regions section, click Add country/region.
  5. Select the country or region that you want to support from the list of supported countries and regions.
  6. Click Add country/region.

Step 2: Enable a currency selector

Your clients will be able to choose their own currency if you provide them with a currency choice. The majority of themes do not incorporate a currency selection, which makes it difficult to offer products in several currencies.

You may either add a currency selector to your theme by working with a Shopify partner or utilize the Geolocation app to add one to your theme. Both of these options are available to you. When you add your initial country or region, the Geolocation app will automatically be loaded on your device by default.

Pro Tip:
Are you tired of these step-by-step setups? Need to automate the store currency settings based on your shopper’s geolocation?

Use Currency Converter Ultimate to make sure your shopper is getting the best possible shopping experience by showing all prices in their native currency along with the multi-currency checkout.

Step 3: Set rounding rules and international pricing

Depending on the Shopify package that you have for your business, the capabilities that you may utilize to create your international pricing model may vary.

You can set rounding rules for each currency you add to make the prices you get when you convert them more consistent. You can also make your own rules for rounding to control how your prices look in a new currency. For example, if you want all your prices to end at $0.95, you can set $0.95 as a custom rounding rule.

You can keep track of your international pricing model by giving different countries and regions different product prices and price changes. Using the product CSV file, you can set the product price and the price to compare it to. This lets you set the price for any product in any country or region. Price adjustments are changes in the base price of a product by a certain percentage. All of the products sold to customers in a country or region will have their prices changed.

Step 4: Test your customer’s experience

Test your online store’s customer experience by logging in as if you were a customer and making a purchase in a different currency. It’s important to double-check your prices and apps to ensure that they function correctly in multiple currencies.
