I'm looking for a currency convertor app that lets me do the following:
1. Geolocates the users. Anybody located in Thailand gets THB, everybody else gets USD.
2. Lets me set the prices of each product in USD manually. I don't mean a manual conversion based on a value - I mean change the actal price of the product variants to a figure of my chosing unrelated to the THB price.
Number 1 is easy obviously, number 2 I haven't seen on app yet.
Website is here: https://rhinopooltables.com
If no apps exist with this function, any suggested workarounds?
Thanks in advance.

I had a look through the app store to find the best Geolocation apps available. One I found which could be worth looking into further is Automatic Currency. It seems to be the best Geolocation app with the most ratings and applicable to what you're looking to do. If the app can't do no.2 for you, reaching out to the developer directly to ask them if this is a potential feature request update. You can reach them directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or from their website here.
Another app which you could look into is Geolocation Redirect, but I'm not sure if that app would enable you to alter any pricing.
The price of a product is often set once you set it, but it might be possible to add some metafields and see if they can help achieve what you're looking for. Personally, this is something I wouldn't be very knowledgable about and would suggest talking to a Shopify Expert as a small task job.
Hope this helps!
All the best, Nick
Really great question and I love your thought process on it. It wouldn't be possible to set two different set prices in two different currencies though. You can only set one price per product and then that price would be converted into another currency from the original currency price. There are several different really good currency converter apps you can look into to help facilitate the currency change, but it wouldn't be possible to have two set currency prices on a single product, you can see a list of the currency converter apps in the Shopify App Store here.
Your best bet to have set prices for the same product in different currencies would be to have multiple stores. While this is not completely ideal, there is a feature within the admin now which allows you to switch between stores where the same email you have is associated with it. You can see the help guide Shopify has for this here.
