Customer experience involves many aspects, one of which being the price display. Confusing the visitors with default currency hinders the user experience and lessens your chances of conversion. Magento stores that serve worldwide customers need to implement a system of price display that suits everyone! It helps in enhancing the user experience as well as expand the business globally. Meetanshi has developed Currency Switcher for Magento to auto-detect the users' geographical locations and switch the display currency accordingly!

Currency Auto Switcher for Magento uses the Maxmind database to auto-detect the GeoIP addresses of the visitors. Based on the locations, the currency is switched to visitors' native currency. It helps them easily understand the prices of the product.

Reduce the cart abandonment and at the same time enhance the user experience! Use Currency Switcher for Magento to boost global sales in your Magento store!


How does the extension work?

Enable the extension from the backend.

In the frontend, the extension detects the GeoIP address using the Maxmind data and accordingly switches the currency and displays the product price. For example, a visitor from India sees the price in INR while a US visitor gets the price display in dollars!
