Currency Converter

The Currency Converter Plugin for classifieds automatically converts the price of a listing and shows the user an equivalent in his currency, based on his location. The Plugin will come in handy for classifieds sites with visitors from different countries. For instance, if you are running a US-based site and have visitors from other countries, they will see prices in their local currencies calculated based on accurate exchange rates.

Not only is the Currency Converter Plugin convenient for a visitor, but it may also decrease user abandonment since users will be less likely to navigate to an online currency converter elsewhere. If you offer your users to get an accurate price equivalent of a listing in their currency on the go, they’ll remain on your site longer, thus increasing user retention rates.

Back End

Once activated, the Plugin creates a manager in the admin panel where you can:
  • Add new currencies;
  • Add codes and names for the available currencies;
  • Enable or disable desired currencies.

As for currency exchange rates, the Plugin updates them automatically on a daily basis meaning that users will always get an accurate number. It should be noted that the Plugin is based on Ajax, meaning that the conversion of prices happens without the need to reload an entire page.

The Currency Converter Plugin is a must-have for classifieds sites targeting international markets and receiving traffic from different countries. Having it on your site will help users avoid the inconvenience of constantly having to convert from the default currency to their local one; the Plugin will automatically do it for them.
