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.
