IMPORTANT - each marketplace can only have one base currency. If using Stripe as the payment solution, offered by Omnyfy, please ensure that the Base Currency matches the currency of your Stripe Account.

Default Display Currency

Sets the currency that is shown to the customer by default.

NOTE: you can have multiple Display Currencies for each Marketplace. When setting up Multi-Marketplace configurations please explain your requirements to Omnyfy or your implementation partner in relation to exactly which currencies you wish to display prices in.

NOTE: If your base currency is going to be different from your Default Display Currency setting, prices will be converted from the Base currency.

This does not affect the currency paid - the customer will always ultimately be charged in the Base Currency.
