Setting up Currencies

CommerceLab Shop must always have a default currency set, whether or not you're using the Currency Switcher Module.


A default currency is usually set during the Setup Wizard Process, however, it important to be sure that a default currency is selected in the CommerceLab Shop backend component.

Activating a Currency

CommerceLab Shop comes with every currency you could need to run a store anywhere in the world. All you need to do is activate the currencies you need. To activate a currency to CommerceLab Shop, follow these steps below.

Step 1

  • Navigate to the CommerceLab Shop Component and look for "Currencies" on the sidebar menu in the settings dropdown.

  • This will load a currency table with all available currencies.

Step 2

  • Find the currency you wish to activate. You can find the currencies you need by either using the text search:

  • Or by reordering the table:

Step 3

  • Activate your chosen currency by clicking the "x" icon to turn it green:

Step 3

  • Now that your currency is activated, set a "rate". A rate is how the currency will convert in relation to your default currency (which is always set to rate = 1). So if your default currency was say, Euro and you just activated Pound Sterling, then you might want to set the "rate" of Pound Sterling to "0.91". ( Now your new currency will be available in the currency switcher module.
