HikaShop supports all the existing currencies. It has a currency manager so that you can tweak each currency. It also has a currency switcher module if you want to allow your users to change the current currency. And finally, it has a system to automatically update the currency rates.

Currency Management

Once you are in the backend of HikaShop, you can go in the HikaShop menu System>Currencies where you will be able to manage your currencies.

Currency rates update

When you edit a currency via the menu System>Currencies, you can configure a conversion rate with the “Rate” option. Then, if you enter the prices of your products in one currency and that a customer looks at your shop in another currency for which you didn’t configure a price, Hikashop will use the rate of the currency to convert the price automatically.

If you have the Business edition, you’ll find an “update rates” button on that screen which will allow you to automatically update the currency rates when you click on it.

Currency switcher

The currency switcher module of HikaShop can be activated via the Joomla modules manager. You’ll be able to display it in any position of your template, like any other Joomla module

If you have currencies which are displayed but not published, the users will be able to see the prices in that currency on the products listings, products page and in the cart module.

However, they will see the prices in the main currency of your shop during the checkout. That will allow you to have users from many countries see the prices in their own currency, but have them pay in your own currency because for example your payment gateway only supports your currency.

Finally, with the Business edition, you can configure the Geolocation system in order to force the default currency on the pages to the currency of the user based on his geolocated IP address.
