Currency Function for Theme

We're looking for someone to do some clever CSS/Javascript to display prices in multiple currencies. We have something semi-working but needs to be cleaner.

We're using the shopify provided currencies.js to display multiple currencies but we want to hide each currency... then change the single price when the symbol is selected below.

The store is under development currently and the URL is: http://havenshop.myshopify.com/products/blue-shirt-tres

We do not have much of a set budget for this and would rather take in estimates to get it done.

Please reply here or email matt@overhaulmedia.com

For inspiration, here's a Shopify website that does it nicely: http://www.scp.co.uk/collections/gifts-accessories/products/aalto-glassware

The library you must use is located here:

Hi Matt,

We just did a site that does this. I'll shoot you an email.

Thanks, Gavin.

Ha! Excellent! I was responsible for that SCP site fix-up job and turned on that little ditty. Remarkable when I look at that one site, threw away 20-30 lines of code for 1 in a lot of places to help get it done.

Thanks Gavin - can't wait.

Can anyone elxplain how the currencies.js file works? I am assuming it pulls recent rates from somewhere then just converts using that rate?

How often does it update/accurate is it?

Hi Mark,

Please check your spam folder (heaven forbid!). I sent the email a couple of days ago. As it happens, I just did another multi-currency site this morning.

Thanks, Gavin.

@overhaul. Yes Gavin's just done multi-currency on my wifes website nicolawhitman.com and works a treat.

I think I read somewhere that currencies.js is updated about 3 times a day. I'm assuming Shopify pull in a an XML currency feed at say 8hr intervals.

Thanks
