    Exchange Rates - Automatic Integration?

    It doesn't look like uCommerce can automatically lookup exchange rates on-demand or at least daily. Is there a third party add-on for this? Will it be supported in future versions of uCommerce?

    I believe that this is the case for uCommerce:

    • The currency specified in Product Catalog (ie. USD), is the currency that product prices are pegged to
    • Customers are allowed to choose which currency they wish to view the price as. This helps conceptualise the price in local currency
    • When paying, the payment gateway is fed the the price (ie. in USD), 
    • Optional: and can be fed the users currency, for seamless payment

    I would like to see:

    1. The ability to support all currencies (I'm selling software, which can distribute anywhere there is internet). As new currencies are detected, they are added?
    2. A check box, to determine whether to automatically determine exchange rate (per each currency)
    Thanks :)

    Hi Todd,

    You're right that this isn't part of uCommerce although our Currencies do have an exchange rate that you can specify; the exchange rate is not picked up automatically from a third part service though. So you'd have to maintain it yourself as it is today.

    As a default we use the price put on the product, the reason for this is that usually store owner want control over their pricing and what they look like, e.g. 9,95 instead of 9,87.

    I'd like to suggest that you add this as a feature request on our UserVoice where voting on individual feature requests happen

    Hi Soren,

    I have submitted the feature request, hopefully a future version will feature the solution :)

    Perfect. I'll be sure to keep an eye on the votes for it. Could you mark this question as answered please?
