View Full Version : How do I get the right currency to show?

Hi Chuck ...
I created this ad and set currency as Canadian Dollars ...
I can see anywhere in the displayed ad for other members where it shows the dollar amounts are Canadian dollars? Shouldn't there be a currency field displayed after the amount?

To my knowledge canadian dollars use the symbol $ so thats why you dont see a difference.

Ahhh.... ok.. :D
I thought it meant the world currency that the selling price was being reflected in...

well according to what I see canada uses the same symbol as the US
If you post an ad with some other currency say Euro or Yen you will see the price being displayed with the currency symbol a user selects.

Pretty dumb of me .... B=0
Having been used to vBClassifieds for almost two years, I was looking for something more complicated... :p
Just changed it to "pounds" and I get it it now ...
Sorry about that ... :o

Well if your referring to actual currency calculations as far as what is charged I believe thats handled by the actual payment site. For instance if you pass the canadian price a user puts on the ad to paypal and your paypal account is set for US you payment on the ad should get calculated based on paypals current conversion rates.
