Removing a currency

It is possible (but not recommended) to remove currencies from the webshop system. If you need to hide some currency from your customers, you should set its status to "inactive" instead of removing it from the system.

Please note that removing a currency will result in removing prices in this currency for all products. This may cause problems if some of your products have a base price in this currency.

Example

Let's say that some of your products have base prices in USD as shown in the following table.

 

Product 1

Product 2

USD

50.00

Base custom price

50.00

Base custom price

NOK

338.50

Auto price

600.00

Non-base custom price

EUR

42.00

Auto price

42.00

Auto price

These base prices will be deleted if you remove the USD currency (see the next table).

 

Product 1

Product 2

NOK

0.00

Auto price

600.00

Base custom price

EUR

0.00

Auto price

74.45

Auto price

As you can see from the table above, removing the base price may result in unwanted behavior like setting all the product prices to zero. That is why removing currencies is not recommended.

The following text reveals how you can remove one or more currencies from the webshop system.

  1. Open the list of currencies by clicking the "Webshop" tab in the administration interface and selecting the "Currencies" link on the left.
  2. Use the check-boxes to select the currencies that you wish to remove.
  3. Click the "Remove selected" button.
