Currency Exchange

Hi - I'm using MarketPress with GridMarket - http://niche.hickmanking.com

My client would like to sell products in New Zealand & Australia - does MarketPress / GridMarket have the option for users to change their form of currency eg. New Zealand Dollars (NZD) & Australian Dollars (AUS)? Thanks.

    @Newton no MP dont have that but there is a workaround :slight_smile:

    Here is what i have done for some of my customers

    http://greenerlifestyle.bloglines.co.za/
    http://seabreezemarketing.co.za/
    http://bloglines.co.za/

    The easy way is to set up a blogs/sites for him with currency's

    So blog a will be $ and blog b will be rand and so on :slight_smile:

    I hope this helps for you :slight_smile:

    Or he can use the same website but just use shipping and then give it a table rate :slight_smile:

    Hi Mark

    So just to clarify - you're suggesting I create two websites, each with a separate currency, as per country? Yes, that would work successfully - but would require another hosting account and require double the maintenance of the site. However, its still a option.

    "Or he can use the same website but just use shipping and then give it a table rate :slight_smile:" - Sorry, I don't understand your idea here. Can you please explain it in more detail?

    Thanks for your help. Much appreciated.

    Hiya,

    Mark is right that MarketPress doesn't provide this itself, no.

    I think what he's suggesting is that if you're using a Multisite you activate the plugin on a per-site basis, which will allow sub-site admins to set their own currency.

    @Mark - if you can clarify the table rate that would be helpful as I'm not sure I understand the suggestion there :slight_smile:

    Thanks!
    Phil
