How do I use another currency instead of US Dollars?

Alternate currencies in Zen Cart

There are two parts to configuring your currency settings. The first is whether you want to accept more than one currency and the second is adding the new currency.

Go to Admin > Configuration > My Store. If you are running your shop in a language that is not English and are going to use your native currency, click on the line that says “Switch To Default Language Currency” and change the value to true. If you are going to run the cart in English, but not use US Dollars, make sure that the “Switch To Default Language Currency” is set to false.

Then go to Admin > Localization > Currencies. On the page that comes up click the New Currency button. Fill in the information appropriate for your currency and check the box if it is to be the default for your shop. Click the Insert button, then after the page refreshes, click the Update Currencies button.


Still have questions? No problem! Just head over to the Zen Cart support forum and ask there.
In your post, please include your Zen Cart and PHP versions, and a link to your site.
