The default currency in my ecommerce site is set to US dollars and I want to change it to Australian dollars but there does not appear to be any way to this. I have searched all the help files on how to do this but could find no help files on how to go about changing the default currency. I was very surprised that there is no help file on this matter because everyone living outside of the US would probably prefer to have their own currency as the default currency so they can show accurate price changes when the currency rate changes for their country.

This has become rather urgent for me as the Australian dollar has dropped over 12 cents in the last couple of weeks and my prices are now all over the place.

I do have another problem with currency rates and that is when I copied the information on the web page for automating changes into the cronjob I keep on getting an error from the cronjob saying that no such web page exists!

Any help would be appreciated on this urgent matter

You need to add language of your own currency and after that you can disable the currency if you want. Other wise if you like to set as default then go to language menu and from there select your default language and also default currency it will solve your issue.

That I am afraid does not work. When I installed Prestrashop I set the default language to Australian English

but on list, where you've got all available currencies in your store have you got the AUD ?

if not, try to re-import australian localization pack under the localization > localization tab

You can import there whole localizaiton pack for Australia (States Taxe Currencies Languages Units (e.g. weight, volume, distance) )

 

the other way to create AUD - you can do it manually. Go to localization > currencies, click on green button "add new"

yes, but it's also there that you add new currencies and modify the default currency and this is what you wanted... ...

everything cannont be just unswered "I have done this when I set up PS"... you do not learn anything if you do not go and look for yourself, instead of asking basic questions, everything is detailed in PS documentation...

Found the problem. When I was setting up I did not scroll down far enough in the default currency and used the dollar without realizing that the AU Dollar was underneath. Have changed the default currency from dollar to AU dollar and everything works fine now.

Thanks for your help

I have a problem I hope you can help me with..

i was going to have multi-currency on my site, got it sorted, then decided to do multi-store one in each currency (2 currencies) ... one in Australian dollars and one in US dollars... this got too messy as I am in a hurry to get up and promoted for Christmas....

so I am now back to one store, US dollars (default) store only, and allow multi-currency, with AUD$ and also Pounds to the store.

I know how to do this, so when I tried re-input the AUD$ and pounds currencies into the back end, I get an error report "THIS CURRENCY ALREADY EXISTS".  In fact they do not exist anywhere that I can find, and does not appear in the front shop... only the default currency of US$ appears at the shop front.

At one point i did import a localization pack for these currencies...

Thanks in advance.

Craig

hello

you mean that, for example, if someone:

select EN language - you can allow to use only $ currency

select DE language - you can allow to use only € currency

select PL language - you can allow to use only zł currency 

etc.

 

is that right?
