How to manage currencies
>> Open Summer Cart admin panel
>> Go to the Settings menu, under 'Languages and Currencies' click on Currencies link.
'Currencies' page lists all currencies. It also helps you set up default currency for your store, create new currency, edit and delete available ones, manually update exchange rates, activate or pause currencies and arrange sort order.
Summer Cart provides automatic rate updates on a daily basis. Data is taken from six recognized sources - the European Central Bank, Bank of Canada, Reserve Bank of Australia, Bulgarian National Bank, Central Bank of the Republic of Turkey and National Bank of Romania. You can choose between the six sources through Currency Rate modules.
Also see Currency Rate Modules topic.
Default currency for the entire store
When you set up currencies you first need to opt for a default currency of your choice.
In the Admin panel, whenever a store administrator views products and orders, and anywhere else in the admin panel, all prices will be listed in the default currency only.
In the Store front, whenever a customer visits your store all prices will be shown in the default currency unless he/she selects another active currency.
