Currency Issues

Feb 12, 2009 at 3:02 PM
Hi there

just started using your module and while a few things stumped me to start with it seems to be working now, the only problem is that on the cart page the prices seem to come out in $ not £, i'm making a site for a UK company.

Any clues what i'm doing wrong?

I have an en-GB language pack installed, but still no luck

I'm having the opposite issue.  I have my site set to en-US and on the product list page it shows the price and then a Euro symbol. On the product detail page it shows "prix : 8.00" and then the Euro symbol (it should say price: $8.00).  On the drop down list for the 2 versions I have of the product it correctly shows the $ dollar symbol and on the cart pages it correctly shows the dollar symbol.

Other than that I love the cart so far. Although I am just now beginning with it.

ahh thats easy

the € symbol is in the template.

The give awy for that was how it says prix - frnch for price if my GCSE french serves me right.

and I fixed my own problem

i was logged in with the superuser account the default language for it was en-US.

so all in i did this

1. Downloaded the en-GB language pack
2. Set the Site to use en-GB
3. Set the user to use en-GB 

now it works and shows £ on the cart
