Currencies

WHMCS supports all global currencies as well as syncing of product prices across currencies. Currency support applies to all currency values throughout WHMCS (for example, product and addon pricing). You can change WHMCS’s currency and set conversion rates from within the Admin Area.

You can access this feature at Configuration () > System Settings > Currencies.

The list of currencies displays all of the currently-configured currencies on your WHMCS installation.

Default Currency

By default, the base currency on new WHMCS installations is USD.

If your installation does not contain any transaction or invoice data, you can change this by selecting the country for that currency at Configuration () > Setup Wizard.

For more information, see Change the Default Currency.

Currency Configuration

For each currency, you can configure the following settings:

  • Currency Code — The standard three-letter ISO-4217 code that payment gateways use.
  • Prefix — The text or symbol to display before the amount.
  • Suffix — The text or symbol to display after the amount.
  • Format — The currency format.
  • Base Conv. Rate — The rate by which to divide amounts in this currency to find the base conversion rate.
    • For example, USD to GBP could be 1.5.
    • You can enter numbers up to 99 trillion (14 to the left of the decimal and 2 to the right).

Update Product Prices

You can automatically update prices in currencies other than the base rate using the rates you set.

For steps to configure automatic pricing updates, see Automatically Update Prices.

To do this manually, click Update Product Prices or set this to run after the daily rates update at Configuration () > System Settings > Automation Settings.
