Learn how to set up the Currency Display feature, which allows your Customers to choose which currency they want to display within Checkfront booking pages.
This is not to be confused with your transaction currency, which is determined by your Base Currency (Manage > Setup > Locale). Currency Display instead helps your Customers view amounts in their preferred currency!

Setting up Currency Display in CheckfrontBack to top
- First, go to the Integrations section (Manage > Integrations).
- Next, navigate directly to the Sales category under which the integration is listed or do a keyword search for Currency Display.
- Then, click on the Currency Display tile to begin setup.
Select one or more currencies from the Currency Display modal to offer your Customers as display options. Your company's base currency is selected by default and cannot be deselected.
USD - US Dollars, EUR - Euro, GBP - UK Pounds, and CAD - Canadian Dollars are also selected (if not already your base currency).
Once you have chosen the combination of Currency Display options to offer, click Activate to save your selections.
Next, we look at how this feature works for your Customer.
Choosing currency to displayBack to top
Customers can now choose which currency to display on your booking pages by selecting their preferred currency from the dropdown menu. It is as simple as that!
Currencies then display as selected throughout the booking process except for the payment page and booking invoice, as we explain later.
A reminder displays within Create Booking that amounts are estimates only and that final transaction amounts are in the company's base currency instead of the Customer's selected display currency.
Finally, the booking invoice displays all amounts (Total, Sub-Total, Sales Tax, Transaction Fee, Donations...) in your account's base currency so that the Customer understands the currency in which the payment is transacted.
