Although you've always been able to sell on Shopify internationally for a long time, until recently, full multi-currency was only available to those who are able to afford Shopify Plus.
Not now though, since mid August, Shopify have enabled all plans to allow selling in multiple currencies with Shopify Payments. This means that customers can shop and pay in their local currency without seeing it converted into GBP on their statements.
This is great news for stores that want to offer true internationalisation as global customers often feel more confident when they know how much they are exactly paying for goods without seeing final costs converted on their statements.
With Shopify Payments you can accept and refund payments in the following currencies:
- Australian dollar (AUD)
- Canadian dollar (CAD)
- Denmark Krone (DKK)
- Euro (EUR)
- Hong Kong dollar (HKD)
- Japanese yen (JPY)
- New Zealand dollar (NZD)
- Pound sterling (British pound) (GBP)
- Singapore dollar (SGD)
- United States dollar (USD)
How does it work?
The customer's local currency can be chosen from their location or from a currency selector that you can add to your theme.
Your prices are automatically converted based on the foreign exchange rate and rounding rules. The conversion fee for the transaction is included in the total that your customers pay.
Caution: If you are selling in multiple currencies with Shopify Payments, then you can not use a multicurrency app from the Shopify App Store. Multicurrency apps are not compatible with this feature.
