WooCommerce Currency Converter by Geolocation

WooCommerce Currency Converter has always been the dream of many big internet sales companies around the world.

Each country has its own currency and currency conversion varies from hour to hour.  Currency converter is also accompanied by other issues such as VAT (Value-added tax), payment methods, etc. WooCommerce does not have the ability to convert currency, change payment method by geolocation, etc. in its standard package.  Therefore, you need to find several plugins that may solve these problems. But do you want to use 4 or 5 different plugins or use one plugin that solves all these problems?

WooCommerce Currency Converter by CF Geo Plugin

WooCommerce Currency Converter is possible using CF Geo Plugin based on the visitors geolocation. This small and simple plugin can transform WordPress website and standard WooCommerce into WooCommerce Currency Converter tool where you can set a base currency and visitors will see prices into their own currency based on the conversion rate in the real time.

CF Geo Plugin uses an API service connected to central banks and always gets accurate real-time currency conversion. This allows it to perform an accurate currency calculation and WooCommerce Currency Converter is enabled throughout this system.

How WooCommerce Currency Converter works?

After the first installation and first use, it is necessary to correctly configure the plugin so that it can work properly.

To configure the plugin you must be logged inside your wp-admin area like administrator and on the left sidebar menu choose:
CF Geo Plugin => Setting.

Inside this settings you will find section Plugin Features and below this title you have a checkbox WooCommerce integration.

Enabling  WooCommerce integration you get many interesting features.

These options allow users to bring their products closer to the target group, convert price into real-time customer currency, show or hide a payment method depending on the law in a state or group of states, redirects visitors from one product to another and much more.

WooCommerce => Settings

This setting gives you a new option inside WooCommerce General Settings under Currency options where you can setup currency conversion options and display converted price next to regular price.

How does this work?

The CF Geo Plugin within WooCommerce Currency Converter Options adds new fields where you can define automatic currency conversion based on the visitor’s location.
