Currency rate modules

What are Currency rate modules

Summer Cart shopping cart has built-in functions to work with multiple currencies. The supported currencies automatically receive daily updates on exchange rates, if you are using the Summer Cart Pro pack..

Currency rate modules enable you to select the source of currency rate updates. Summer Cart takes data from six recognized sources - six significant Banks from different areas of the world. Once you have completed your settings at 'Currencies' page you can go to 'Currency rate modules' to manage the sources.

How to manage 'Currency Rate Modules'

>> Open Summer Cart admin panel

>> Go to the Settings menu, under 'Modules' click on Currency rate link.


'Currency Rate Modules' page shows the six currency rate sources Summer Cart supports.

Use 'Currency Rate Modules' page to select the currency rate source that best suits your economic preferences, and also to arrange sort order if you keep all sources active. Summer Cart provides six modules for automatically extracted currency rate data and makes it possible to list product prices in multiple currencies.
