Select currency based on user location
This setting enables the use of geolocation to determine the currency to use for a customer. If enabled, you can use the setting “Filter currencies enabled for your store“ to limit the set of currencies available for your store.
When this setting is enabled: The user currency used for display and payment will be determined based on the user location and the list of currencies enabled for the store. A customer located in the USA will see products prices in US dollars, whereas a customer located in France will see the product prices displayed in euros.
When this setting is disabled: The currency indicated in the setting “Default/Fallback store currency” will be used for all customers, regardless of their location.
Filter currencies enabled for your store
This setting allows you to restrict the set of currencies that are allowed for your store. SCD uses this information in addition to geolocation to determine the customer currency to use for display and for payment.
Example: If this setting is set to only two currencies, USD and EUR, then only these two currencies will be selected by SCD. Customers in USA will see prices in USD; customers located in the euro zone will see prices in EUR; all other customer will see prices in the default currency specified in the setting “Default/Fallback store currency”

Default/Fallback store currency

This default currency will be selected for display if location based currency selection is not enabled (see setting “Select currency based on user location”) or if the currency corresponding to the user location is not in the list of enabled currencies for your store (see setting “Filter currencies enabled for your store”).
The default value of this setting is to use the “Base Currency”, which is the currency selected in the WooCommerce setting, as the default currency.

Set custom price per currency for a given product
SCD allows you set a custom price of a product for a given currency. For instance a product can be set to a price in US Dollars of 100 USD and a price in euros of 150 EUR. A customer shopping from the USA will see the product price as 100 USD; a customer from the euro zone will see the same product at 150 EUR.
When a custom price by currency is set for a product, SCD uses directly the custom price set by the vendor instead of converting the base currency price.
To set a custom price by currency for a product:
- In the wordpress dashboard, open the Edit Product page for the product to edit
- Locate the rectangle “SCD – Set Currency per Product” in the Edit Product page and click inside the textbox to select the currency for which you want to specify a custom price
- Enter the custom prices (regular price and sale price if applicable) in the two textboxes added by SCD below the tax information
