Set up local pricing

When you create new markets that contain either one or multiple countries or regions, customers in those countries or regions will browse and pay in their local currency by default.

When you create a new single-country market, the base currency for the market is set to the currency for that country or region. If the currency is not supported, then the market base currency is set to your store's base currency.

When you create a multiple-country market, the default base currency for the market is set to your store's base currency, and local currencies are enabled, meaning that each country or region in your multiple-country market can view their prices in the default currency for their country or region. If necessary, you can disable local currencies for a multiple-country market, and then set the currency for all countries and regions in that multiple-country market. When local currencies are disabled, all customers in that market will see and pay in the one currency that you choose.

Setting up local currencies for a multiple-country market

When you create a multiple-country market, local currencies are enabled by default. If local currencies are disabled in a market, then you can enable local currencies again.

Steps:

  1. From your Shopify admin, go to Settings > Markets.

  2. Next to the name of the market, click Manage.

  3. Next to Currency and pricing, click Manage.

  4. In the Pricing section, check Show prices to customers in their local currency.

  5. If you want to turn off local currencies, uncheck Show prices to customers in their local currency. When local currencies are turned off, all customers in that market will see prices in that market's base currency.

  6. Click Save.

When local currencies are set up, use the Geolocation app to ensure that your customers can view their local currency on your online store.
