Shopify not automatically switching locations / currencies

1 0 0

Hey guys,

Shopify is not switching the currency based on location. For example primary currency is USD, and when I search from Canada I still get my pricing in USD. This is despite me going through the settings and activating the markets.


Here are my market settings:

and here is what it looks like when i go to my store while logged in on my own browser

so it looks like it should be working but as soon as I leave my own browser it goes to USD and does not display the proper currency.

Hi @CaseyBurns. Automatically changing the currency based on IP address goes against Google's guidelines, which is why this isn't happening.


However, you can create a dedicated Market for Canada, with a unique subfolder, and then enable automatic redirection:

1. Create a Market for Canada

2. Go to Domains and Languages in the Canada Market - you will see that a subfolder for Canada has been created e.g.

3. Go to the main Markets page and go to Preferences

4. Enable domain redirection


Now when Canadian customers navigate to, they will be redirected to which will be in CAD (and vice versa for US customers who accidentally land on the Canadian URL).
