Default Currency Change

Default Currency Change
This extension helps you change the default currency by re-calculating all prices in new currency.

Background: OpenCart supports changing the default currency, but will not convert the prices into the new currency. So - by changing the price, price of products remain the same number. The same applies to all other store prices - special price, prices in shipping modules, coupons and more.

You can use this extension whenever you need to change the currency in which you input prices in the store.

★ Simple usage

All you need is install the extension and choose the new default currency. The extension will
  • change the default currency,
  • change the currency rates for all installed currencies accordingly,
  • change all relevant Opencart price records (see the list below)

★ Automatic backup of prices and a restore option

Due to the fact that radical changes are made ​​to the database, extension will create a backup copy (only for tables that have been changed). If necessary, you will be able to restore the prices and currencies as they were before the default currency change.
