Currencies Opencart

Opencart 3 supports multi-currency so with Opencart we can sell in any currencies, anywhere in the world. Go to admin >> System >> Localization >> Currencies where you will see the currencies available for use in the storefront. In the store by default, there are Euro, Pound, and US dollars but only the US dollar is enabled by default.

Default currencies in Opencart

The default currency is set to a value of 1. When you entered the product’s price we need to enter as per the default currency with value 1. Every value of the currency will be relative to this value as per the above image the value of the US Dollar is 1.0, the Euro is calculated to 0.85500002. The frontend price is calculated and converted as per the currency value which has 1. If Auto Update Currency is enabled then the currency is auto-updated.

Don’t confuse with default currency and value 1 of currency

Here you need to enter the price worth with the currency value equal 1. Don’t enter the default currency value but need to enter the price of currency value equal to 1. Mostly they are the same but be sure the currency value is 1 and it is the default currency.
