Allow your donors to switch to the currency of their choice and increase their overall contribution with the GiveWP Currency Switcher add-on. Select from an extensive list of currencies, set the currency based on the location of your users, pull from live exchange rates and more!
Donors often prefer to donate using their own country’s currency. Giving donors the option to switch to your currency can reduce abandoned donations and increase overall donations.
The Currency Switcher add-on has been developed with an intuitive interface and powerful features designed to give you flexibility when setting up your multi-currency donation forms.

Easily enable geolocation without having to register with any third-party service. Customize a backup if the donor’s location is hidden or not found
Eliminate the hassle of exchange rates The Currency Switcher add-on allows you to select from the major exchange rate APIs to retrieve accurate rates for all your accepted currencies.
How GiveWP Currency Switcher works
Quickly enable Google-powered exchange rates without an API. Rates are updated according to a customizable interval set by you.
Often, when changing currencies, donation levels will not even be amounts. If you want more control over the amounts in each currency, you can easily adjust them manually. This works for both established and multi-level donation forms.
Customize the currency amounts per level to ensure that your amounts are always even numbers.

Many payment gateways will convert the donor’s currency back to the base currency you are accepting through the gateway. For example, Stripe will take Euros and convert to USD if you are based in the US. The end result is that you will be paid in your base bank currency. Please check your specific gateway for currency compatibility before purchasing.
