Checkout API / DraftOrder API - Presentment currency not applied

I have Shopify Payments set up in my development store.

The checkout is configured to support multiple currencies, which works well when checking out via the standard checkout. The shop is configured in EUR, and I'm able to check out in USD after changing the currency via the currency switcher built in to the Debut theme.

 

However, when I create a checkout via the Checkout API I'm unable to get the checkout to show in a presentment currency. It always shows in the default shop currency.

 

The payload includes a presentment_currency.

Here's the anonymized POST for a shop with default currency set to EUR.

I'm attempting to request a checkout in USD, but it generates a link to a checkout in EUR:

 

POST https://[shop].myshopify.com/admin/checkouts.json HTTP/1.1
X-Shopify-Access-Token: [ACCESSTOKEN]
Accept: application/json
Content-Type: application/json
Host: [shop].myshopify.com
Cookie: __cfduid=db46f8a2697c32efd861be690364e65591570279904
Request-Context: appId=cid-v1:[APP]
Request-Id: |a766b2d3-4bf8d561e71d2d78.
Content-Length: 101
Expect: 100-continue

{"checkout":{"line_items":[{"quantity":3,"variant_id":28327434256477}],"presentment_currency":"USD"}}

 

I'm using the presentment_currency in line with the documentation found here:

https://help.shopify.com/en/api/reference/sales-channels/checkout 

 

I've also tried to do the same using the Draft Order API, setting the currency field.

This also fails to display in USD, and also displays in EUR:

 

POST https://[SHOP]/admin/draft_orders.json HTTP/1.1
X-Shopify-Access-Token: [ACCESS TOKEN]
Accept: application/json
Content-Type: application/json
Host: [SHOP].myshopify.com

Content-Length: 129
Expect: 100-continue

{"draft_order":{"currency":"USD","line_items":[{"quantity":3,"variant_id":28327434256477}],"use_customer_default_address":false}}

 

What am I missing?

Any news on this?

According to the documentation this should work.

I'm probably missing something.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

This does not appear to be working as intended, so thank you for the report. I've logged this as an issue internally and will keep this thread posted on any significant developments.

 

Cheers.

One of our Shopify apps is also affected by this problem. Is there a time frame until when the problem will be fixed?

Hello,

 

Is there any update or timeframe on this? I'm also facing the same issue & couldn't pass the currency value.

@aruninnoppl Shopify confirmed this is a bug on their end (see above). We're waiting for feedback from the Shopify team now.

Any update/fix yet? 
@DiscountNinja were you able to solve this?
Checkout API is still restricted to Shopify Plus, right?

Hi folks,

 

Sorry for the delay in response! Alex switched roles, and this must have fallen between the cracks.

 

I can see a fix was shipped back in January that added the support of presentment_currency in the admin api checkout creation flow. Considering the date of the recent comments on this thread, can someone confirm if this is not the case when using this endpoint?

Hi @Busfox , unfortunately, Draft Orders are still always in the store's default currency (https://help.shopify.com/en/manual/payments/shopify-payments/multi-currency/limitations

 

Selling in multiple currencies is currently supported on just the Online Store sales channel. Draft orders are always in the shop's currency. This doc contains more information about our multi-currency feature and some of the limitations.

Hi @Busfox,

 

I can confirm this does not work in the Checkout API (and not supported in the DraftOrder API).

When passing in a presentment_currency in the checkout API:

The response still defaults to the base currency of the shop:

So, not fixed.

 

Regards,

Bart

@Busfox Do you have any news on the status of this issue? Do you have an ETA on a fix and can you let us know on which APIs this scenario will be supported?
