Checkout – Multiple Currencies


We have released a Multiple Currencies extension for the WordPress Shopping Cart plugin. Start increasing sales with our Multiple Currency extension to the Shopping Cart Plugin.

Add a currency picker on your WordPress Shopping Cart and all your website’s store prices will change to show the shoppers chosen currency. Exchange rates will automatically be fetched and updated every 24 hours.



1. Make sure you have WordPress and the WordPress Shopping Cart plugin installed.

2. Purchase the Multiple Currencies extension and then download it from your downloads management section in ZIP format.

3. Navigate to WordPress > Plugins > Add New to install it there and skip to step 5 , or extract the ZIP archive to obtain the checkout-currencies folder.

4. Upload the checkout-currencies folder to your wp-content/plugins/ directory in your WordPress installation.

5. Go to the “Plugins” page in your WordPress dashboard to see Checkout – Multiple Currencies listed where you can click the “Activate” link to activate it.

6. Configure the Multiple Currencies plugin under Checkout > Extensions > Multiple Currencies where you will find more options for currencies.



Checkout > Extensions > Multiple Currencies > Settings

You can now select your base currency and other currencies available in your shop.


1. Base Currency

Choose the base currency that the customers will initially see and in which purchases will actually be made.

2. Exchange Rate API

Select the API that you want to use to exchange your currencies, it will update every 24 hours automatically. The list of APIs may change.

3. Currency from Location

If you want the plugin to automatically detect a currency from your visitors’ location, select this checkbox.

4. Other Currencies

Choose other available currencies to display on product edit pages, on the frontend of your shop, and on the currency switcher widget. This effectively lets you sell in multiple currencies.

5. Currency per Payment Method



Override a currency per payment method.

Some payment gateways/methods only support specific currencies and in other cases, the merchant account with the gateway may be issued in one currency. For example, PayPal does not support all possible currencies while you may want your customers to be able to order in those. The Multiple Currencies extension plugin will then automatically convert the prices for the chosen payment gateways to the specified currencies.

6. Fixed Currencies per Product


Specify fixed currencies per product under Checkout>Products – add / edit an existing product.


Sidebar Widget

You can add a sidebar widget to your site, where your customers can select their currency.

Go to your WordPress dashboard and select Appearance> Widgets. Drag and drop the currency widget to your sidebar.

Widget Back-end


Widget Front-end Display




You can use the [checkout_currencies] shortcode in any post, page or custom post to display the currency switcher.


Add/Remove Currencies

You can add/remove currencies using the checkout_currencies filter hook.
