Shopify merchants can now control their international prices by country/region. When using Shopify Payments in multiple currencies, you will now see the option to add price adjustments by country (Shopify Plan and above), or you can also set specific prices per product, per country/region using a CSV file upload (Shopify Advanced and Plus plans):
To provide accurate location based recommendations to international buyers, and allow your buyers to switch pricing between countries or regions, we recommend using Shopify's Geolocation app, which I am happy to answer any questions about as well. We will soon be adding the ability to build country selectors directly into themes, and adding them to all of Shopify's themes on the theme store.
In addition to region specific pricing, Shopify can now also display prices on your storefront either including or excluding taxes depending on where your buyers are from. For example if you're selling to buyers in the US, all product pricing remains exclusive of taxes on the storefront, and then added at checkout based on where the buyer is shipping to. However in markets like the UK, Europe, and Australia where buyers expect to see an all inclusive price, prices can be displayed including any applicable local taxes on the storefront, so there are no surprises when those buyers get to checkout.
To make sure your buyers are seeing prices accurately either including or excluding tax based on their market, enable the location based tax setting in your admin under Taxes --> Settings:
You can review the countries/regions that have tax inclusive pricing enabled when this setting is checked in our documentation.

I have been trying to switch from running two regional websites and it looks like these feautures may work to do that for me. I had a question about functionality though,
If I use regional subdomains for my US and Canadian prices. I am aware that you can set up an automatic redirect to put the shopper on the right page with the right currency. Can you remove the dropdown currency selector though? I want people to see the prices in their respective countries but it seems like the selector is always there with multicurrency allowing customers to see prices in other countries which I don't really want them to be able to do.
Any insight would be appreciated!
You can remove currency selector by removing the relevant liquid code snippet. I am not sure if it is possible without delving into code.
Sorry, but this is ridiculously misleading. I'm surprised every time Shopify staff announces something in conjecture with Shopify Payments, they conveniently forget the fact that Shopify merchants come from 100+ country where Shopify Payments isn't supported and generalize by saying "Shopify merchants".
For anyone coming in here new, this entire thread is applicable to only those merchants who are from 17 countries supported by Shopify for Shopify payments.
We'd recommend keeping a country selector in the footer of your site. IP address detection and automatic redirection are not correct 100% of the time, and you should always leave your customers the opportunity to change experiences if they wish to. This is also in line with Google's best practices which recommend to website owners that visitors can always navigate to regional variations of your site.
If you use international pricing, what you can be assured of is that if a US buyer tries to check out in Canadian dollars, for example, we will switch their pricing to USD at checkout. So your buyers should never be able to "cheat" your pricing system, and the price you set for each country/region is honoured in the relevant currency.
Let me know if this doesn't make sense!
Hi @coleatkinson can you give us an idea of when this solution will extend to:
Thanks for the reply @coleatkinson!
Fingers crossed the manual payments issue gets resolved promptly.
And thanks for the direction to that report!
Thanks. We are ready to launch our App. It works under the "usage charge" approach. Do we need a solution like this one?
