Curly question about Currency conversion on order total


Recommended Posts



I am setting up a website for a wholesaler who sells around the world.


When they do this they charge the foreign customer a fixed price in their own currency


For example

An item purchased in Australia costs AU$10.00

but the same item purchased by an American customer will cost them US$8.50


The reason for this is that the wholesaler wants to make the price static for foreign customers so they know what to expect, but they also figure postage costs and other things into the price of the item for overseas customers... ultimately it is the wholesaler who deals with the fluctuations in the exchange rate.


They use five different currencies including AU$ (and the world is split into different zones that are charged a particular currency)


I have the site set up so that it displays the currencies for each zone with no problems, but obviously I need to convert the foreign currencies back to AU$ before the transaction is sent to the Australian gateway...


Does anyone know if such a beast exists as an addon?
