I've just converted an ecommerce site to support multiple currencies rather than just one and was looking for any feedback or experience in how to display the fact that the site can now be viewed in multiple currencies.
Whilst we still mainly sell in GBP, we do sell to a significant amount of people whos natural currency is USD or Euros too, so making them aware that they can see the price of an item in their currency is the prime goal.
Some of our current thinking....
- Currency selector along the top with the rest of the account controls (display a flag as well?)
- Do an IP lookup to guess the users location, working out currency from that and displaying it for them to confirm in a popup
- The etsy.com way - show a users main settings at the bottom
Any other options, thoughts or interesting implementations?
