Hi there,

I am in the process of setting up my vpasp site, and one thing that i can not seem to sort out is the default currency. I need all the prices to show correctly in GBP without the prices being converted first.

For instance, at present if i add a product in at 39.99 the product will end up showing as 22.57, i assume that is because it assumes my 39.99 entry is in USD. I have changed every setting that i can find to GBP, ENGLISH and etc. I have also changed the GBP conversionvalue to 1 and have even deleted every other currency from the currency table so GBP is the only value left.

Nothing i have done has worked, have i missed something?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Dear Mike,

You need to also set your default currency to .

This is achieved by modifying the currency conversion values which are stored in the currencyvalues table in the database.

Log in to your admin pages, and go to "Occasional Tasks" > "International" > "Currency Tables"

The currency that is set as "1" is the default currency and controls the master rate. So if you want your site to display in GBP then you would set GBP to 1.

You need to recalculate your other currencies accordingly to match this new default master rate.

Thank you
