Multi-Currency WooCommerce Extension
Create a WooCommerce extension that allows Multi-Currency.
Michael Visser discussing something for WPeC here - http://www.visser.com.au/blog/wp-e-commerce-multiple-currency-support-for-products/
There is a plugin here for WPeC - http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-e-commerce-multi-currency-magic/ - see plugin description below:
"Wp-e-Commerce Multi Currency Magic is a Add-on Currency Widget that allows your customers to view prices of products and Cart in the Currency they desire, When proceeding to checkout Currency Converter then Changes the Currency Back to the shops base currency, and stores it in Wp-admin as both Base Currency and Currency Viewed by Customer. (requires Wp-e-Commerce 3.7.6)"
We have the http://www.woothemes.com/extension/currency-converter-widget/ for simple on-the-fly conversion, and the WPML team are developing something within their plugin for a server-side conversion.
*insert any widget, not plugin
use the 'widgets on pages' plugin.
It will allow you to insert any plugin with a shortcode.
Search for it in the Wordpress repository.
Hi, is there any shortcode to put this widget somewhere else in my theme?

The Currency Switcher we developed does exactly what you ask, allowing to enable payment gateways on a per-currency basis. For more information: http://dev.pathtoenlightenment.net/shop/currency-switcher-woocommerce/

I'm interested in WooCommerce providing a currency converter PLUS a payment gateway for EACH currency.

I don't know if I'm allowed to write here, but I developed a WooCommerce extension that allows displaying prices and receiving payments in multiple currencies. It's not available on WooThemes because I was told that they don't take any more submissions, but it can be found on my website: http://dev.pathtoenlightenment.net/shop/currency-switcher-woocommerce/

what if my Customer want's to checkout in that currency?
Take a Look at OSCommerce!
Yeah I think this is a bit lack the widget is a step but not what is needed. this would be a great addon plugin and would sell heaps I feel with the world becoming more internationalized.
if this may to help someone (about some idea) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VPhP-tE0Wec
I've thinking for some way to calculate rate of the custom currency before sending to PayPal for example.

The ability to set your own rates is much needed: http://ideas.woothemes.com/forums/133476-woocommerce/suggestions/2621647-multi-currency-function
What about having two sites? The user chooses US or Can, and they go to the respective sites? That's what I have done. Not running yet.
@Danuta It's a widget. Go to the widgets area and drag it to your sidebar. Simple as that.
If that doesn't help - start a topic in the support forum mate. They'll help you quickly
I just bought the plugin but can't get it to work. It seems to have installed fine and I've activated it, but I can't find where I have to go to make the plugin work. The shop page looks the same... Can anyone point me in the right direction?

that what you show in your link is intresting is this a plugin and where i can get it
Hi martin jacob, i'm interested, is it a plugin?
Martin Jacob commented
I put something together here...
Any interest in something like this?
There is a new addition in WPML plugin for WooCommerce as: "‘Enable multi-currency"
This is included in the newest beta version:
Maybe this is the option we are looking for!
Take a look at www.opencart.com to see a perfect multicurrency and language switch! It even gets the current conversion rates or fixed rates as you wish.
Will this be a TRUE multi-currency extension i.e. for payment gateways that support multi-currency, will it be able to process the transactions in that currency? ...or will it just convert it back to a single currency for processing?
