As the global economy continues to grow and evolve, so too do the needs of businesses. One such need is the ability to accept payments in multiple currencies.
WooCommerce is a popular eCommerce platform that allows businesses to do just that. But what if you want to add a custom currency symbol to WooCommerce?
There are two ways to add a custom currency symbol in WooCommerce. The first is by using the Custom Currency Symbol plugin.
This plugin is simple to use and only requires a few clicks to set up. Once installed, you can add your custom currency symbol by going to WooCommerce > Settings > General > Currency Options and selecting your new currency from the dropdown menu.
The second way to add a custom currency symbol in WooCommerce is by adding a bit of code to your site. This method is slightly more technical, but it can be done without a plugin.
First, you’ll need to find your currency code. You can do this by going to the International Organization for Standardization website and searching for your country’s currency code. Once you have your code, you can add it to your site by adding the following line of code to your wp-config.php file:
Replace “YourCurrencyCode” with your actual currency code. Once added, you should see your new currency symbol in the front-end of your site.
Adding a custom currency symbol in WooCommerce is a simple process that can be done in one of two ways – with a plugin or with code. If you’re not comfortable working with code, then we recommend using the Custom Currency Symbol plugin. Otherwise, adding a few lines of code to your wp-config.php file is all it takes.
