I was wondering if there's an app we can use for automatic currency display based on visitor's location?

Hey Phil!

Totally, it's called "Auto Currency Switcher".

These apps sure are costly though at $21 / month for something which should be a standard inclusion on any serious e-commerce platform like Shopify.

Any chance of Shopify also making this app in the future and including it as built-in in their paid plans?

Hi Phil - We recently released a brand-new app called Coin and it's 100% free if you install before 7/10!

Give it a try, I think you'll be pleased :)

Hi Aaron,

Thanks. I did try Coin yesterday as the first app for this but it seemed to mess up the pricing when going to the cart. For example a product of 40 € turned into 35 €. So I removed the app.

Then I tried the other app which messed up my theme settings ( product images weren't showing anymore ) and a bunch of other stuff so I removed that one too.

Shopify has posted free code for this for years. It's a copy & paste job to have currency switching. So paying $21/month is a bit of a premium, but if cut & paste is not your thing... I guess you opt to pay. I cannot see Shopify doing much in this domain, they covered it pretty well back in the day.

Is there a link with documentation of this somewhere?

These are probably a good start.

Phil - That definitely shouldn't be happening, it may be something as simple as an update the base rate setting. Our support team is here to help you if you'd like to reinstall :)

As Bill mentioned, Shopify has a great help doc on this topic if you don't need to auto-detect the currency and the ~12 hour delay between exchange rate updates is acceptable for your shoppers.
