Introduce about J2Store Multi-Currency

This feature of J2store permits you to set up your store which supports multiple currencies. Let’s take an example if your store location is in US and you want to attract more customers from Korea or Europe countries, you will need to create a major currency (using for US) and 2 more secondary currencies (one for Europe and another for Japan)

Set up default (primary) currency

First of all, you need to decide the major currency for your store. To set default currency, you will need to go to currency settings to set the valueoption. If you set the value in 1.000000 for a specific currency, then it will be shown as the default currency.

For example, if you set a value of US$ to 1, it is going to be the default currency and in Euro it will be 0.81. J2store will figure all the product prices depending on currency transitions.

First you have to decide your primary or default currency for your store. The valueoption in currency settings is used to set the default currency. If the value is set be 1.000000 for a particular currency, it will serve as the default currency.

For e.g., if US $ is been set the value 1, it will be the default currency and the corresponding value will be 0.81 for Euro. In this way J2Store will calculate the prices for products based on currency transitions.

In order to make an auto update for currency value, you can go to J2store > Configuration > choose tab Store, set “Yes” at option “Auto Update Currency”.
