336: Adding a New Currency in OpenCart

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 TitleThis is the title you want to name the currency
    Currency CodeThis is the ISO Code standard for the currency
    Symbol LeftUse this for currencies that use symbols on the left
    Symbol RightUse this for currencies that use the symbol on the right
    Decimal PlacesShow how many decimal places are in the site
    ValueThis 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.
