The currency for transactions that arrive to admin account (membership based submission payments, booking deposit payments to or paid submissions) are set in Theme options –> Submission Payment Settings
For Wire Transfer you can add your currency
Property Price displayed throughout the site
The Price & Currency settings can be found in General -> Price & Currency
The theme has 1 main currency and 1 price per property only. There is no option to have different prices for each property (like price in Euro and price in USD).
This area is reserved for the following modifications:
- Price number thousand separator (for properties price)
- Price symbol (for property price)
- Price label (for the multi-currency widget)
- Enable or disable API for multi-currency and set multi-currency options – https://help.wprentals.org/article/multiple-currency-widget/
Each price will be originally displayed using the main currency you set in Theme Options -> Price & Currency
Multi Currency Widget
If you want to use the multi-currency feature, first add a default currency in the admin options.
Add the new currency you can also add currency value.
This value will be used to transform the price from the main currency in this new currency.
For ex 1 EUR = 0.73 x 1 GBR . (0.73 is the GBR).
Auto-exchange currency converter
For the currency value to change automatically you must set all these 3 settings correctly:
- You must enable Enable auto loading of exchange rates from free.currencyconverterapi.com (1 time per day)? AND add your Currencyconverterapi.com Api Key
- Get the free api key from here https://free.currencyconverterapi.com/free-api-key and add it in Theme Options
- Set the Currency Code and Label according to International Standards http://www.xe.com/iso4217.php
Also, since the currencies values can vary from day to day, we create a cron job that runs 1 time per day and takes the financial data from Currencyconverterapi to auto fill these value forms in Theme Options.
Add the Widget to widget area
For multi-currency we use a widget with dropdowns – http://help.wpresidence.net/article/multi-currency-widget/ When a user changes the currency from the dropdown widget, we read the currency value you just set and convert the original price.
Cookies and Caching
Please note that the user currency options are saved as cookies on user computer. Some cache plugins may interfere with this mechanism.
If use a cache plugin see this help where is explained how to use a cache plugin with Multicurrency widget dropdown: http://help.wpresidence.net/article/how-to-use-a-cache-plugin-with-multicurrency-widget-dropdown/
Multi Currency Doesn’t sync with Auto Exchange API
If you cannot make the Multi-Currency sync with the Auto Exchange API enabled
Contact hosting and ask them to Activate the fopen function
Then save the currencies settings again and should solve the problem.
If you choose to use WooCommerce to process payments for bookings deposits or paid submission, the currency is managed from WooCommerce settings
