The system redirects you to a new screen divided into the following three sections: Settings, Price Rounding, and Countries. The first one looks as follows:

  • Name – the name of your currency here;
  • ISO code – its ISO code;
  • Short name – a name that follows the ISO code EUR and consist of three letters;
  • Symbol – a symbol of your currency;
  • Conversion Factor – the factor of your currency defined as a multiplier of the standard currency in your system, such as 2.365 to the US dollar. It converts the stored values of the system standard currency, displaying the adjusted prices with the assigned currency in the frontend.

The Price Rounding section lets you create separate conditions for items and grand total. In the first case, you specify decimals – the maximum number of digits after the decimal separator – and rounding intervals. The latter values account for markets where the lowest physical denominations of the currency have been abolished. As a result, you have to rely on cash roundings. By selecting “None”, you can disable them.

As for the Grand Total section, rounding intervals are not available in it. But in both cases, you can enable rounding for net customers.
