Bt default, OpenCart 3 comes with three pre-installed currencies - Euro, Pound Sterling, and US Dollar. Whether you are targetting the International market or specific geographical location you would most likely want to include additional currencies for the sake of your customers’ convenience. In this tutorial, we will show you how you can add extra currencies in your OpenCart store within just a few simple steps.
In order to start, please log in to your OpenCart Admin Dashboard and navigate through the left menu bar to System > Localisation > Currencies.
On the “Currencies” page you will see listed all currently available currencies in your OpenCart Online Store.
Now that you are on the “Currencies” page, please click on the blue "+" button in order to add a new currency.
Afterward, you will be presented with the “Add Currency” page where you will need to fill the details related to the new currency you are adding.
Once you enter all the required details, please do not forget to click on the blue save button located at the top right corner of the page.
Now you can go ahead and double-check if the currency is successfully added by clicking on the “Currency” dropdown menu positioned at the top left corner on your store frontend.
Please note that by default OpenCart 3 automatically updates the currency rates on a daily basis. You are able to control this functionality by going to System > Settings > Local and setting the “Auto Update Currency” option to “No”. You will also be able to determine the default currency of your store from the “Currency” dropdown menu available under the same “Local” settings tab.
