Using Braintree with Multi-Currency


Multi-Currency can only display currencies on your storefront and does not have the ability to convert currencies in Shopify's checkout by itself. If you have a grandfathered plan for Bold Cashier installed on your store, you can offer currency conversions on the checkout page.

Please visit Cashier & Multi-Currency Integration for more information on setting up this integration.

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

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

Note: This integration requires Cashier to be enabled in order to accept these foreign currency payments. Please visit Get Started with Cashier before proceeding with this guide.

To set up Braintree to accept multiple currencies on your site, please follow these steps:
