16. Icon Theme: Setting up Currencies

In this article, we will walk you through the setup for the Multiple Currencies in your Shopify theme.

In the  Icon theme, you can select to enable currency conversion which will show a currency selector next to the cart (or bag) icon for customers to choose their preferred currency. Here are the steps to set this up.

Step 1

From your  Shopify admin click on Settings > General. Under the Standards and Formats section look for Currency Next to this click the Change formatting link.

Step 2

The first 2 fields  HTML with Currency and HTML Without Currency will look similar to this:

${{amount}} USD${{amount}}

These will need to be wrapped with an HTML  span element.

<span class=money>${{amount}} USD</span> <span class=money>${{amount}}</span>

Click the save button when done.

Step 3

Now from your Shopify admin click on  Online Store > Themes > Customize theme > Theme settings and open the section titled Currency.

Step 4

Here you can choose to Enable currency conversion which will show a currency selector next to the cart (or bag) icon for customers to choose their preferred currency. This currency selector connects automatically to  xe.com to give the most current exchange rates to customers. You may choose a Money Format or Money with Currency. If you are using several options that use the dollar symbol, for instance:  CAD, USD, AUD then select Money with Currency. The Default Currency should always be the same as that used within the Settings > General > Standards & Formats > Currency section of your Shopify admin.

Be sure to click the save button when you are done selecting your options.
