Hi, @markk298!

My name is Lilith, I'm on the Social Care team at Shopify.

Depending on the payment provider you have enabled on your store there will be different ways to do this.

One of the popular options is to enable it on Shopify Payments if you're eligible to use that provider.

We have a guide here on how to activate multiple currencies in your store. This will allow you to choose how to convert the prices to local currency or to use the standard exchange rate.

Once you've enabled that and chosen the countries you want to provide local currencies to be either paid in or shown you can use the Geolocation app to have a message appear when the customer views the site. This message encourages them to switch the currency on the site to their specific local currency based on where they are.

On the other hand, if you're not able to use Shopify Payments to allow customers to pay in different currencies you can still use any of the 3rd-party apps in the app store here that let the customer switch the currency to the one they would like to see the prices in. There are many that are free and some that are paid on that list.

Those currency conversion apps will allow the customers to view the prices in those currencies, but they will still pay in the currency you have selected under your general settings

Let me know how you do with the information above! I'm happy to answer any questions you think of as you work on your business.
