How do I set the currency?

Recommended Posts

A local firm to me has a 2.2 insall but has just had to change card payment systems to WorldPay. Problem is that I need to set the currency to GPD for it to work with WorldPay. The shop owner has said he has spoken several times with WP and they say we have to set it in the config for the module.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

did you try to look under the modules inside the admin area?

I'm not familiar with Worldpay but all payment modules can be added/removed and edited in the admin area.

 

Admin Area -> Modules -> Payment

 

If you need to change the "shop" currency itself then look inside

 

Admin Area -> Localization -> Currencies

I use Worldpay in the UK. I am not quite sure of your problem. Surely your store has GBP as the default currency? My overseas customers have no problem using worldpay as providing they have entered the correct country in their address worldpay will accept any currency and charge the customer the appropiate amount of Groats or whatever.

Once the details are passed over to world pay I then end up with a error,

 

The currency or amount is not recognised.

Please return to the merchant's site and try again. If the problem persists contact the merchant.

How is your installation set up on the Wordpay site and is your store in GBP

 

Can you access the Worldpay admin on the Worldpay site?

Looking at currency I see that pounds is set to GDP not GBP. But if I change it all the prices on the site change to zero. So how do I update this. BTW the site is set up with 1 currency.

Firstly GDP is not a currency so whoever set the store up has got it horribly wrong.

 

In admin > Localisation > Currencies add GBP as a currency.

 

Set the Exchange rate to 1 i.e. 1 GDP = 1 GBP, it should have defaulted to that

 

Set GBP as the default currency

 

Delete GDP only after having checked that the prices are showing correctly

Thanks for the responses.

 

I managed to do it in the end. I had to read the FAQ on installations.

 

Set default currency from USD to GBP in 'includes/languages/english.php'.

 

Then set TRUE on Admin > Config > My Store > Switch To Default Language Currency

 

Updated default currency and all is well with prices and WorldPay.
