The tutorial assumes you are already logged in to your Magento dashboard.

3. Expand the Currency Options tab.

4. You can edit the Base Currency, Default Display Currency and Allowed Currencies options there.

  • The Base Currency option defines the currency, which is used for all payment transactions in your store.
  • The Default Display Currency option defines what currency is used to display pricing in your store.
  • Finally, the Allowed Currencies option is required for choosing currencies, supported by your store.
Note, if you select only one currency for the Allowed Currencies option, the Currency Switcher will be disabled automatically.
