The e-commerce.

setting currency


Recommended Posts

I would like to change the currency on my site so that it is in dollars. In admin I set the default currency as dollars but the site still loads up in uk pounds. How do I change this?

Try in the admin panel, Configuration -> My Store -> Switch to default currency = True


I have no experience with this but I believe that osC reads the users browser and uses the users country preferences to set the language, unless you override with the switch above. But I may be mistaken. You can try that and others will likely be along soon to confirm or give you additional changes.

In the language file look for this line:


// if USE_DEFAULT_LANGUAGE_CURRENCY is true, use the following currency, instead of the applications default currency (used when changing language)



Also change it to GBP if GBP is going to be your default currency.

Hi i have the exact opposite problem, i've set my default currency to GBP which is what i want to appear on my site however EURO still shows as the main currency on my site. I've set the 'switch to default language currency' as true and set the default currency as GBP in 'currencies' but it still shows as EURO as default when you visit the site. I thought by deleting USD from the list GBP would take its place, however EURO has taken its place. Any ideas? thanks.
