Multiple currency payments


(Scott Frankel) #1

Hi all,
I want to try and setup a payment system so that I can receive payments in various currencies; AUD, GBP, Euro specifically. This is my first exploration into e-commerce and not sure how to receive payments in various currencies. I didn’t really want to setup payments using US $ but would like to offer payments and prices in my customers local currency.

I am using RapidCart Pro with Stripe or PayPal payments but also have PayLoom.

Any suggestions or how to would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers Scott

Thanks Scott

Not sure how best to do this. Usually you have to set a base currency for your cart. Those users can pay in their local currency and it gets converted to your base currency and lands in your Stripe / PayPal account.

But having a store with options to pay in multiple currencies is most likely not possible. An alternative would be to show the price in a few currencies using a realtime currency convertor and add a message like "this is a guide and billed in " (where is your base currency)

Hope that helps

Hi Michael,

Thanks for the reply, yes I have searched and tried a few things but it does seem very difficult to achieve.

Are you aware of a real time currency converter stack or how I can do this if no stacks around?

Cheers,
Scott

Yeah it might be @scottjf

Not sure if there is a Stack around but you could do it in PHP:

My good friend at https://boxfromjapan.com/ did it on his checkout here (https://shop.boxfromjapan.com/en/product/candy-try/) as he wanted to show his non USD customers a rough guide of what the price would be but it wasn’t easy to setup.

Hope this helps!
