Customer CurrencyTake a local approach for more international sales

Tailor the language and currency of your checkout based on a users location

The language of your website should be consistent throughout the customer journey. Even if you redirect the customer to a hosted party payment page during the checkout process, you should always have the ability to dynamically specify the language and currency displayed on the payment page.

Providing additional multi-currency and dynamic currency conversion options on your website helps to instil confidence in the international customer, increasing the likelihood of making a sale.
