Magento 2 offers features that can be useful to increase customer engagement and improve the shopping experience. One of them is the Magento 2 Currency Setup which affects the pricing display and payment processing in your stores.
When it comes to Magento 2, physical locations are not a limitation any more. However, the store must be configured keeping in mind visitors from different locations. Currency is one such factor and hence the post guides you to setup multi-currency in Magento 2 store!
Magento 2 offers 3 types of currencies to be set up. All 3 have different scope and usability.
|Base Currency||Responsible for product price setup and transactions||Website|
|Display Currency||Display along with the Product Prices in frontend||Store Views|
|Allowed Currency||The currencies in which store accepts the payments||Store Views|
After the currency setup is done, the currency symbol is shown in product prices, orders, and invoices. If you have set up multiple currency in Magento 2, customers in the frontend will get the currency selector in the header.
