How do I set the multi-currency feature?

Souad Mimouni Updated by Souad Mimouni

You’re now able to expand your revenue and accept payments in different currencies without having to create multiple accounts.


With the Multi-currency feature you will be able to:

  • Add new currencies so customers can change them during checkout
  • Set prices to automatically convert to other currencies based on the specified rate
  • Convert prices using the actual exchange rate provided by Subbly, or set up your own
  • Configure the ‘Round to’ parameter to avoid any awkward-looking numbers

Please note that this feature is available for users on Subbly and Advanced pricing plans. You can check the different pricing plans we offer here.

The multi-currency feature is compatible with all gateways supported by Subbly, and you must have at least one payment gateway configured in order to be able to define new currencies and use the feature.

Please check related articles if you need to set up your payment gateway (Stripe / PayPal or Braintree).

How to set it up?

In order to enable the Multi-currency feature, you need to go to Settings -> Currencies from your Admin (here).

Click on "Add new currency"

Default currency displayed is the one you defined when creating your store and it can't be modified. Check this article in case you haven't configured it yet.

And select the one you'd like to add from the dropdown list

Next you'll see the following options to configure:

  1. Exchange rate: You can use the automatic exchange rate calculated by fixer.io or choose manual and input the rate you want.
  1. Round to: You can set an automatic rounding number in order to avoid unattractive prices.

For example, if my product cost is 1.17 after the currency conversion

  • If I choose to round to the bigger number, the platform will set the price to £1.99
  • If I choose to round to the closer number, the price will be £0.99
  1. You can choose a specific payment gateway for that currency. Please note that you can connect Stripe to multiple currencies while you can connect Paypal to only one.

What will my customers see?

On the checkout pages, there is a small flag icon at the top right corner through which customers will be able to switch to a different currency and see prices converted immediately

You can also automate which currency will be displayed by default when initiating the checkout instead of making customers select it. In order to achieve this you must add this extension (parameter) to the product checkout URL: ?currency=EUR (or USD, GBP, etc.).

For example, the full URL is going to look like this: https://www.subbly.co/checkout/buy/69247?currency=EUR
