Buy Button Auto Currency Conversion

Hi all,

 

So we've built a Webflow website and we're now at the stage of adding Shopify buy buttons.

 

I've been able to tweak the code to pull through the price as well as the button, meaning we can control all the prices within Shopify and not have to update individually on Webflow.

 

My question:

 

We have multiple currencies set on Shopify.

How can I set the code to convert the currency pulled through depending on the user's location?

 

E.g. Our products are in £'s as standard, but someone viewing from the US I need them to see the $ conversion.

 

This is the only thing stopping us from going live, so any help will be greatly appreciated!

Thanks for your reply.

 

We already have a currency switcher installed, but the converted currency doesn't come through with the buy now button.

 

Is this something I am doing or a limitation with the installed app?

This looks like it has done it for our Shopify site, thank you!

 

Now... how do I pull this through onto our Webflow site where the buy now button will be placed?

 

I've tweaked the code and changed the 'price' to 'true' so I can see the price and the button, but it's not converting the price on our Webflow site?

I'm going around in circles with the same problem! It's somewhoat hard to tell if you got total success with this though?

 

i.e. Installing an app that allows you to manage currencies on the shopify page in one thing, but getting that functionality to apply to my website and its buy  buttons is something else.. 

 

Ideally, it would be good to paste the html code into my website, including options to change currency and language.

Does anyone have a solution for this? It seems like this would be useful in general for many people.

Unfortunately we never were able to solve this, so we too are still looking for a solution.

 

Currency conversion within Shopify works great, but we're only using Shopify as the 'backend' where all the transactions happen. The frontend we're using Webflow and the combination works and looks great.

 

It's just the currency conversion we can't get to work. The conversion doesn't pull through so looks like we have to convert on-site, but then there's the risk of the conversion not matching Shopify's...

Ultimately i couldn't find the answer that i was looking for. But I did
conceive of a force fix, that i may reluctantly / temporarily attempt...

Expensive Force fix:
Paying for several shopify lite accounts each with different currencies.
Obviously, there would be a $9 a month cost per currency extra and besides
that, extra admin.

The one major advantage of this method is that it makes it easy to set
prices independently for different currencies to better fit the market
conditions,
(i.e. it allows you to make the prices strategic and the numbers tidy (vs a
price that fluctuates with the exchange rate).
So in the meantime, and for some situations at least, this approach could
be worthwhile until a better solution presents itself.

Hi LazyR!

 

Thank you for the reply.

 

You're absolutely right! It seems like it would be the only neat solution to have one shopify lite account for each currency.

 

Another way for shopify to provide restrict product features and make more money.

 

Thanks!
