The default currency for Shopify is American Dollars, but that doesn’t mean that your shop has to operate in US Dollars. You could use other currencies on your store, or multiple currencies on your store if you use one of the more popular currency converter apps.
So, how do you change the currency on Shopify?
Step 1 – Log In To Your Shopify Dashboard
Log in to your Shopify Dashboard using your user credentials.
Step 2 – Themes
On the shopify admin panel you need to select the ‘Themes’ tab and then click on the ‘Customize Theme’ button that appears on the top right corner of the window.
Step 3 – Money Options
Next you will need to scroll down the page and find the ‘Money Options’ tab. Click on this to view the current settings for your store.
Step 4 – Make Changes
In the next screen you will be given the choice of whether you want to display a currency selector on the store and you can select whether to display a currency code (e.g. USD, EUR or GBP). You can also add/remove currencies from the selector drop down and then set the default currency that is used on your store.
You can add more currencies to the list, using a space to separate them and ensuring that the ISO 4217-3 letter currency code is being used.
Step 5 – Check Your Default Currency
You can also select which currency is the default on your store.
Step 6 – Publish
When you’ve made all the changes you want, ensure that you click on the ‘Publish’ option to save your choices and push them to the front end of your store.
Don’t lose sales from using the wrong currency, you can use a currency switcher or learn to change the currency yourself.
