The XE Currency Converter helps your overseas customers to easily see your store's prices in their local currency using the world's most accurate exchange rates. With simple integration and guaranteed delivery, the XE Currency Converter is the ultimate choice for providing currency data for thousands of businesses worldwide.

We ensure that our currency data reflects accurate global rates by collecting data from over 100 international sources. XE has provided free currency information for over 25 years, and our mobile app has over 65 million downloads. As the World’s Trusted Currency Authority, we look forward to helping you better support your international customers.

Our standard version provides:

  • Live XE exchange rates, the most up-to-date and accurate exchange rates available

  • 5 currencies available in your store – choose from over 170 currencies including Bitcoin

  • Simple, one-click install

  • Customizable decimal formatting

  • Option to add currency flags and control the price format to suit your store’s theme

  • Technical support

Our premium version provides all of the above, plus:

  • Access to all 170+ currencies including Bitcoin

  • Customized margins: add a percentage to simulate transaction fees

  • Custom rounding options: round the price to your preferred format, e.g. .99

  • Geo-location will auto-select currency based on customer's country

  • Customize the position of the currency list where it best suits your design

  • Option to remove the ‘Powered by XE’ label

Note: the XE Currency Converter does not provide transactional rates. Instead, it provides the mid-market rates, derived from the mid-point between the “buy” and “sell” transactional rates from the global currency markets. Your customers will always complete their purchases using your store's currency, so you may wish to explain this to them within your store. With our premium app, you can add a customized margin to simulate any additional fees that your customers may incur.

Just as mentioned in another review, if you're using the compare with price option on shopify, the strikeout that's normally used to identify the regular price is removed when the currency converts. This is definitely confusing for the customer!!

Additionally on the free version the "Customizable decimal formatting" means that either you have it set to "currency default" where XE determines how many decimals are 'normal' or a default number of decimals of your choosing for ALL currencies. Probably not problematic for most but when you're converting from a currency that doesn't actually deal with decimals / cents because they're already in the thousands with USD, where they like their quarters, it just doesn't make sense.

Obviously you can pay for individual rounding options but the free decimal option just seems a bit useless unless you're dealing with similarly numbered currencies like Euros and USD.

Works pretty well, but there is a bug. On the product page, when the original price is shown alongside the sale price, the original price has a strike-through (a line through the price text), this works fine for the default currency for the store (i.e. USD) -- as soon as the user selects another currency from the drop-down the strike-through no longer appears on the price text and the user is shown 2 different prices for the product, this is very confusing for a customer.
