Handling multi-currency well within Shopify has previously quite difficult for Shopify Plus merchants. While there are many workarounds to achieve multi-currency within Shopify Plus, they tend to be quite complex and this is something you want to get right!

However, following the announcement made at Shopify Unite 2018, Shopify Payments now allows customers to check out in their local currency! This new feature allow Shopify Plus merchants to sell globally and ultimately increase international conversions.

Shopify Plus merchants will be able to manage all currencies within the one Shopify Plus store using Shopify Payments. The solution will suppport the following 9 currencies to begin with:

  • Great British Pound (GBP)
  • Euro (EUR)
  • United States Dollar (USD)
  • Canadian Dollar (CAD)
  • Australian Dollar (AUD)
  • Hong Kong Dollar (HKD)
  • New Zealand Dollar (NZD)
  • Japan Yen (JPY)
  • Singapore Dollar (SGD)

Shopify will detect a customers IP through the use of geolocation detection and offer prices that have already beenĀ calculated based on real-time FX data.
