I just could not think of the best way to describe this blog without using a hundred words. I wanted to write about the enticingly named woocommerce multicurrency free wordpress plugin but the title of this blog should really say “how to display multi-currency prices in woo-commerce shopping carts and tweak them to display the multi-currency tag on the product page only rather than all over the place which is really annoying” but that’s too long for twitter 😉
So, assuming you have read that… and it makes sense… then read on.
It’s pretty bloody good. Pretty, Pretty Good.
It describes itself as “WooCommerce Multi Currency – The best free currency exchange plugin” and with the latest release, I am forced to agree.
If you want to
Then this plugin is for you.
Go and grab it from https://wordpress.org/plugins/woo-multi-currency
Upload it — activate it — and you will imediately see the very groovy little multicurrency sidebar.
In this example for Drums The Word I elected to display the currency bar on the right and colour coded it to the website theme:
So when it’s hovered over it dynamically pops out and shows the currencies:
Click the Currency and the price is automatically updated:
It’s really that simple.
I only want to the see this float on the PRODUCT PAGE and luckily their is a nice little setup tweak to control this. Hence this blog to remind me how to do it later.
Goto the Plugin SETTINGS for multicurrency
Scroll Down and type “is_product()” into the OTHER PAGES box
Thats it – it’s easy to control where the multicurrency window shows
With is_product() you only see the multicurrency box in the PRODUCT page. #SUPERNICE
