Using Braintree with Multi-Currency

  • Updated

Bold Multi-Currency, when integrated with Bold Cashier, provides you with the ability to accept payments in multiple currencies on one Shopify store.

Braintree is a payment gateway provider that can accept multiple currencies through one Braintree account.


As of February 19th, 2021, Bold Multi-Currency is no longer available to install on the Shopify App Store. If your store has installed our Bold Multi-Currency app prior to February 19, 2021 - you will be able to continue using this app as it is grandfathered on your store.
