Since the Internet is global; your customers may want to purchase or see the purchase price of a product in their native currency for the country they live in. You can easily add a new currency to OpenCart through the OpenCart dashboard.

  1. Log into your OpenCart Dashboard
  2. Go to Localisation >> Currencies
  3. Click “Insert
  4. opencart_currency_1

  5. Fill in the fields for the currency you’re going to add
  6. opencart_currency_2

    Currency Title This is the title you want to name the currency
    Currency Code This is the ISO Code standard for the currency
    Symbol Left Use this for currencies that use symbols on the left
    Symbol Right Use this for currencies that use the symbol on the right
    Decimal Places Show how many decimal places are in the site
    Value This is the exchange rate based on your default currency
  7. Click “Save

Please keep in mind that you will need to update the "Value" when the exchange rate changes for the new currency. The exchange rate does not update on its own.

Your theme may be overriding the currency that is defined in the back end. Try switching themes to see if the issue is then resolved.
