Multiple currencies setting

Hello,

 

I want my store view to display Chinese currency, and my Admin Panel to show US currency.  What settings do I need to change?

Re: Multiple currencies setting

Hi @saltyfish,

 

To have Chinese Yuan as default - all the way...  

To setup Chinese as base currency, you should do the following:

 

Go to System > Configuration > General > Currency Setup

Set Base Currency to "Chinese Yuan"

Set Default Display Currency to "Chinese Yuan"

Set Allowed Currencies to "Chinese Yean"

 

Then go to System > Manage Currency > Rates

Check the currency caculator (if more currencies is installed).

 

Then go to System > Manage Currency > Symbols

To change the wordings displayed in the store (frontend) - for "Chinese Yuan" it is per default: CN¥

 

To have Chinese Yuan in frontend and USD in backend, do this:

 

Go to System > Configuration > General > Currency Setup
Set Base Currency to "USD"
Set Default Display Currency to "Chinese Yuan"
Set Allowed Currencies to "Chinese Yean"

 

Then go to System > Manage Currency > Rates
Check the currency caculator > Input the the exchange rate for CNY in the empty field.

 

Then go to System > Manage Currency > Symbols
To change the wordings displayed in the store (frontend) - for "Chinese Yuan" it is per default: CN¥

 

Clear cache and check frontend and backend for correct calculations and presentation.

 

Hope this helps you further, else let me know :0)
