Description

When enabled, WooCommerce Multicurrency (Currency Switcher) module adds multicurrency (currency switcher) to your WooCommerce shop.

Options

First you will need to set which currencies you want to add.

  • Go to admin options in WooCommerce > Settings > Booster > Prices & Currencies > Multicurrency.
  • Then go to Currency Options, set number of Total Currencies and press Save changes button. Please note that you will probably need to add current (original) shop currency here (with an exchange rate of 1), so most likely minimum number here should be set to at least 2.
  • Then choose currencies you want to add from drop down lists and set exchange rates for each currency. Rates can be set to update automatically or manually.
  • If you prefer setting price in each currency on per product basis (instead of using automatic price calculation by exchange rates) – enable Multicurrency on per Product Basis checkbox and go to product edit page.

Currencies Options

Booster for WooCommerce - Multicurrency Currency Switcher - Admin Settings - Currencies

Currency Switcher

After setting currencies in the Currencies Options, you can use either Booster – Multicurrency Switcher widget, or one of the shortcodes:

  • [wcj_currency_select_drop_down_list],
  • [wcj_currency_select_link_list],
  • [wcj_currency_select_radio_list].

Or if you want to insert switcher in your PHP code, just use:

echo do_shortcode( ‘[wcj_currency_select_drop_down_list]‘ );

Drop down currency selector should look like this on frontend:

WooCommerce Multicurrency (Currency Switcher)

If you want to place currency selector near the price, you could use Product Info Module – WooCommerce > Settings > Booster > Products > Product Info – and add [wcj_currency_select_drop_down_list] shortcode there.
You can add currency switcher as a custom link with URL `/?wcj-currency=EUR` etc.
You may want to put switcher shortcode in text widget – you can enable shortcodes in WordPress text widgets in Booster’s General module (in “WooCommerce > Settings > Booster > Emails & Misc. > General”) with “Enable All Shortcodes in WordPress Text Widgets” checkbox.
If you want to hide/show switcher for certain user roles, you can use `visibility` common attribute (which can be used for any Booster’s shortcode). For example, if you want switcher to be visible to `administrator` and `customer` user roles only, use:
[wcj_currency_select_drop_down_list visibility="administrator,customer"]
By default “Multicurrency (Currency Switcher)” module is run after the “Price by User Role” module, so if you are using per product prices in “Multicurrency (Currency Switcher)” module (i.e. aren’t using exchange rates), “Multicurrency (Currency Switcher)” module prices will just overwrite the “Price by User Role” prices. To fix this, you need to change modules priorities so that “Multicurrency (Currency Switcher)” is run before the “Price by User Role” module. There are “Advanced: Price Filters Priority” options in both modules – try setting “Multicurrency (Currency Switcher) > Advanced: Price Filters Priority” to 999, and “Price by User Role > Advanced: Price Filters Priority” to 1000.
