This extension allows you to display product prices in different currencies.

In MyCashflow, order payments are always transferred in euros. With Currency Converter, you can display product prices in different currencies in your online store.

With Klarna Payments, you can also accept payments in the Swedish krona.

Pricing

Using the extension is free of charge.

Installation and activation

Extensions are not available in MyCashflow Free plan.

Some of Currency Converter's functionalities require adding support to the store theme.

Learn how to add theme support for Currency Converter.

Adding support for the feature requires the command of the HTML/CSS languages as well as the MyCashflow Interface markup. If you're not familiar with modifying themes, contact the designer of your store theme or our customer service.

MyCashflow's default themes and all of the themes available in the Theme store include ready support for the feature.

Here's how to enable the extension:

  1. In the admin panel, go to Account > Apps > Currency Converter.
  2. Order the extension by clicking Order now.
  3. In the extension settings, select the currencies that you'd like to display in your online store.
  4. Optional: Define exchange rates for the currencies that you'd like to display.

    If you'd like the same prices to be displayed in your online store even if the exchange rate changes, specify a fixed exchange rate in extension settings.

    If you'd like to convert prices according to the ECB reference rates that are automatically updated every day, leave the fields empty.

    Don't specify a fixed rate for the Swedish krona if you use Klarna Payments.

    Klarna Payments enables direct krona payments, and therefore it's better not to set any fixed exchange rate for the Swedish krona if you use the service.

    If the customer pays a price calculated based on a fixed exchange rate, you may lose money or overcharge the customer.

  5. Save the extension's settings.

After you've enabled Currency Converter and selected the currencies you'd like to display, your customers will be able to select the preferred price currency in your online store.

Currency menu

After you've enabled Currency Converter, visitors to your online store will be able to select the currency of the prices from a currency menu.

Also, a new setting – Default currency – will appear in version settings. In this way, you can specify the currency that should be selected by default in the currency menu.

For the currency menu to be displayed in your online store, the store theme must include the {CurrencyNavigation} tag.

MyCashflow's default themes and all of the themes available in the Theme store include ready support for the feature.

If your store theme doesn't include the currency menu, you can add it yourself by editing the theme's HTML/CSS files or contacting our customer service or your store's designer.

Payment processing

In MyCashflow, order payments are always transferred in euros. Currency Converter only displays product prices in different currencies in the online store.

If the customer selects a currency other than the euro, the customer will be shown at checkout a warning that the payment will be transferred in euros.

Klarna Payment allows for payments to be processed directly in the Swedish krona. In such cases, the currency notification displayed at checkout is groundless. If Klarna Payments is the only payment service that you use in your online store, you may want to remove the notification from checkout.

For the currency notification to be displayed at checkout, the store theme must include the {CurrencyNotification} tag.

MyCashflow's default themes and all of the themes available in the Theme store include ready support for the feature.

If your store theme doesn't include the currency notification, you can add it yourself by editing the theme's HTML/CSS files or contacting our customer service or your store's designer.

Currency in orders and payment transactions

The currency selected by the customer is displayed in order details on the order page. The currency exchange rate valid at the moment of placing the order is displayed in the payment transaction's details, which you can access on the Orders > Payment transactions or Orders > Shopping carts page.

Additionally, if the order was paid for in the Swedish krona via Klarna Payments, the currency exchange rate applied to the order is going to be displayed in the payment transaction's details in the right-hand Payment transactions pane on the order page.
