When Multi-Currency is integrated with Bold Cashier, the two are able to provide your customers the flexibility to pay in the currency of their choice.
Multi-Currency can display any currency on your storefront; the only limitation is which currencies your payment gateway(s) can accept.
The payment gateway for your desired currency must be set up within Cashier before continuing with this guide. Multi-Currency is not able to map currency payments to a specific gateway unless it's enabled in Cashier first.
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.

Frequently Asked Questions
No, not all payment gateways convert all currencies. Some only convert certain currencies, and not all gateways will work for your needs.
We strongly suggest doing your own research on what each payment gateway provider offers and how they can work for you.
The currency used by Cashier is defined by the currency that is selected and being used on the cart page (before checking out).
If you send your customer a draft order, it will use the store’s default currency.
Can I use Paypal with Multi-Currency and still allow customers to checkout in their desired currency?
Yes, you can achieve this by setting up a Braintree / PayPal account. You will need to create 1 sub-account for each currency you want to accept, then connect these sub-accounts to Cashier before you can select them within Multi-Currency.
If you sell in CAD, USD, AUD, and JPY, you will need to set up 1 sub-account for each currency: CAD, USD, AUD, and JPY. You will have 4 sub-accounts in total.
The Braintree / PayPal integration can only accept approximately 25 currencies.
