Set up Currencies

From Phoenix User Guide
Setup Shop

From admin dashboard go to Adminnavbarlocal.png Localization → Currencies - you will see this:


CE Phoenix is already installed U.S. Dollar and Euro currencies with U.S Dollar as the default currency to use in the shop.

If you wish to use a different currency click New Currency and install from the drop down list that will show in the right panel and set it as default.

If you wish to use only one currency, remove unwanted currencies in the main list on the left by clicking on the currency and click Delete

If you wish to use more than one currency first install a currency updater module.

  • Click the Install Now link which will take you to admin Adminnavbarmod.png Modules → Update Currency
  • Click Install Module shown top right of screen - the number shown next to it indicates the number of modules available.
  • Click a module to use from the list.
  • Click Install Module
  • Click Edit
  • Enter a Sort Order value. Do not leave 0 as the Sort Order on modules as it can cause problems. You can give it any number, in this case enter 10 so if you decide to install another module it leaves the option of entering a lesser value for the next if required.
  • Click Save

Come back to this page and click Update Exchange Rate

This must be done daily to keep updated.

If you have more than one language installed:

  • Go to admin → Configuration → My Store → Switch To Default Language Currency
  • Set to true - the currency will change to match the language selected by the customer.
