STOP Using Shopify Currency Converter Apps (Shopify Dropshipping)
hey, how's it going everyone? my name is michael and today we're going to tok about a big problem: using currency converter apps in your shopify store and why you might not want to use them. but before that, i want to thank everyone who has subscribed, liked and gave me some type of feedback. we passed over 100 subscribers, which is an amazing start. also, if you haven't watched my first or second video about conversion rate optimization on product pages and more, then you can watch them too. i'm sure you can also implement at least one of the tips that i gave. i also got suggested how-to videos, so i'll get those done too, and i have another video planned about car and checkout page optimization and how to reduce abandoned cards and more. i know a lot of people who like to sell the different countries, like the us, canada, uk and australia, and they simply just go to the shopify app store and find a currency converter like this one. you might think it's a good idea, because the app says it'll automatikally switch the currency on the product page to the customer's local currency, but this isn't a great idea. this isn't a great idea, in my opinion, because, yes, it can switch to the customer's local currency, but it won't convert on the checkout page. in fact, most currency converters from the shopify app store won't convert on the checkout page, which is very important because it's the money page. these apps will just put out a message saying all orders, process, process and usd, for example, and on the checkout page it just shows the default currency, which isn't good. this is why so many people who use currency converter apps see low conversion rates, many at the cards, below sales, abandoned carts and more. these customers may get confused or don't trust the store anymore. so what's the best solution for this? well, the only way that i know of is using multi-currency with shopify payments within your settings and you'll just need to add the countries and uh settings for this. so, for example, i already have canada, uk. so, after adding all the countries in, you just need to get the geolocation app from the shopify app store and you'll see a currency selector on the footer or whatever you have it selected to. so let's select it to pounds and it'll automatikally convert the price. and keep in mind that this is a demo store, so the product page and car page and check i was not optimized at all, but i'll leave a link on the top of my video about product page optimization and i give eight tips on about how to increase conversion rates on a product page. so let's click, check out and the price will automatikally stay in in pounds. so the customer will pay in their local currency and will have no friction or no problems. now if you don't have access to shopify payments, then the second best option would be to delete the currency converter app and just leave your prices as default. so if you, if you have your default for usd, just just leave it at that. here's an example from a person that helped on their store. i saw they were using a currency converter app, like before, and i told them that i see many people having car in checkout bannermens. so i gave them my advice about removing it and they saw their profits boosted up to 30 percent daily and their conversion rate was above one percent, where before they had a below one percent conversion rate. and that's about it for today's video. i do have a list of video ideas about more store optimization tips and more i. i also thought it was a good idea if you guys wanted me to do store reviews or audits to tok about what- what they're doing wrong or right. so if you like this type of content, please make sure to subscribe and like, so more people can get recommended to them. thank you.
How To Easily Sell Worldwide on Shopify (No Apps!) | Shopify Markets
in their recent wave of updates, shopify just made it very easy for all e-commerce brand owners to actually sell in different markets, different countries, in different currencies and collect the right taxes from these people automatikally. before there used to be something available- with shopify plus or with other apps again- that you could add to your shopify store, but now that is natively included in your regular shopify plan. so in today's video, i want to share with you how you can set up shopify markets to sell in more than one country, or just split within regions within the world and have more than one currencies automatikally switch based on who views your website and where they're from. let's start toking about the update itself. so what's new? why did it come around? you know what's actually included inside of that. so in their editions update they released, you know, at the beginning of the summer, actually more towards the end of june. this is basically the new sort of feature that they call shopify markets. but they say right here is that simplifies international selling by helping you reach new geographic regions and optimizing your business to drive global sales. so, that said, what they say right here, the top three points for you to remember is that you can have different prices and you know different domains by different markets. you can sell in each markets local currency, meaning that if you sell in the uk, you can sell in pounds. if you sell in the us, you can sell us dollars. if you sell in canada, you can sell in canadian dollars and language, which is very important- that you can actually automatikally translate your website based on these different markets around the world. but the last thing, which is also pretty important, is that if you're a brand selling internationally, something that is sometimes very inconvenient for the clients is that they order from your website and then, once they get the product, it'll actually be stuck at custom and then they'll have to pay duties or import taxes, and then it just kind of get very annoying for your customers, whereas you can actually include that yourself in the pricing on your app. so, basically, if you play with your tool right here- and i'm actually going to show it to you in a real life shopify dashboard in just a second, but you can actually choose- basically they give you examples of markets right here. so, for example, let's click uk and then you can actually click. you know, you can actually see it right here- you can have a different domain extension for that market. and you know you can make sure that you have a different language and you can kind of see it here at the top. basically it kind of shows you these other options. if i picked germany as an example, i would see the same product but in a different language. or i would say the same product with a dot d e right in the us. it would probably be a. you know the same website but just with a different extension. japan, you know pretty much the same thing, a different sub domain right here. so now let me show it to you in action. so, as you can see from that website, right here, their primary market is the us. they also have another market that is set up which is basically international, so you can kind of see what sales come from that market versus what sales comes from the other market. so once you click manage on a certain market, it tells you right here domains and languages. as you can see right here. you can see the us at the end of that client's domain, which is their domain variation for the us market. it's in english. then what is the currency in pricing, which is us dollars, duties and import taxes, which you can also manage by itself right here, basically not collecting any duties or import taxes, shipping zones that you can also have based on that, you know those are actually more general store settings and you can also see the performance from that specific market share, which is very good, because now you can actually split your market shares on a shopify, meaning that if you have more than one markets set up in the back end of your store, you can actually see and do reports on how many sales come from each market. you can go by world region, so you can actually go by continent right- north america or europe- but you could also go by actual countries like canada versus the us, as an example. if you want to add a market, it's simple: you just go back here to markets, then you go to add a market in the top right. you give it a name right here. so let's say, i just go, um, i don't know europe, and what i can do from there is add countries or region. so right here, as you can see, you have either countries or the continent. so what i could do is, let's say, rights, i could go down to europe and simply select it as a whole and then click done and then it would actually add them to that specific market, which i'm not going to do right now because i don't want to mess up this client's store. and then, once you actually do that, again, it's very simple, it's pretty straightforward: you simply click the language that you want to translate the store into, then you pick whatever the currency that you want and then you pick if there's any duties or taxes. so it gives you these three tabs for you to actually go into and just modify right on the store. so whenever you click on the domain- it's very simple- it actually gives you three options: do you want to use the primary domain only, or you want to use a domain at a sub domain or a subfolder? right, just again, we saw it earlier. if you come back here, they showed you all the the examples. that is a subdomain right here because it starts before the domain, so jpshopcom. if you actually switch to germany, then it's actually the extension at the end. so basically, instead of being a dot com, it's a dot d e, so you can also use that, which is would be a different domain right here, right? so if you go to your examples, that would actually be a different domain or subdomain that you would pick right there and if you actually click that right here en gb or en us, that is actually a folder for that domain. so those are again some of the different examples that you can use. what i'm showing you here as an example is the fact that that client actually uses a different domain per store. they have different shopify stores set up, which again makes everything pretty complicated, but they could now consolidate all of their different markets, all of the different stores, into a single shopify store which is just split between different markets. what that allows e-commerce brands to do now is to have- again, it's mainly on the advertising side of things- you can keep everything inside a single pixel, so you can have one shopify store. then you keep one single business manager, one single pixel inside of there, and allows you to have all the data at the same place, which is good, because the more pixels you have, the more your data is a little bit scattered and we've had cases where, look, we had a domain per country, which can work and to some extent, but having everything under the same pixel, it helps the advertising platforms learn a little better about your brand, so you can kind of consolidate everything right here, from the ad platform side of things to the back end of your shopify store and also to your inventory, because splitting your inventory across different shopify stores can be a bit of a logistikal hassle for you to make sure that you're not actually having, you know, some doubles on both that you're not also. so basically, you have to allocate a portion of your inventory to specific shopify backend, whereas now with markets, you can basically have everything within the same back end and they're all linked together. so if somebody tries to buy the us in the uk at the same time, you only got one left. well, the first person wins. they won't be able to buy the same time, like we could probably do so with two shopify backends, if you have not allocated inventory the right way. so again, this is a great change for anybody using shopify an.

Shopify Markets Full Tutorial | Globalize Your Shopify Store
in september 2021, shopify launched shopify markets, which allows you to sell internationally from your shopify store. it allows you to convert your store into multiple different currencies, it allows you to translate your storefront into different languages, it allows you to add local payment methods to your checkout, depending on which country your customer is coming from, and it also allows you to add custom domains to your store, depending on which country your customer is coming from. so in today's tutorial, i'm going to be showing you how to set up shopify markets for your drop shipping and e-commerce shopify stores. so let's get straight into it. so the first thing you're going to have to do is sign up for shopify markets, so we'll leave a link in the description to the shopify markets sign up page, so you can just go to shopify dot co, uk slash markets or shopifycom markets, depending on which country you're in, or you can just google sign up for shopify markets. all you then need to do is click on login to get started, and it will ask you to log in to your shopify store, and then you can just click apply for access for shopify markets. once you click on apply for access, hopefully after a few weeks you should receive an email like this, which will say: we're excited to let you know that your store has been selected for early access to shopify markets. from here, it will say: you can now navigate to the shopify markets in your admin. so just click on here in the email. it will then bring you to your shopify settings and then you will be in the shopify markets area. so from here, you can add a market, which basically means you can add a country that you want to start selling to. so all you need to do is click on add market. now, from here, you can choose a market name. so this is going to be the country or region that you want to target. so i can come in here. let's just say spain, for example. then you can add countries and regions, so you can choose a bunch of countries or just one country. so let's say, for example, i chose south america. i could go and add all of the south american countries to my market, but for this example, i'm just going to use one country. so we are just going to go and type in spain, and then i'm just going to go and choose this and click on done. now, from here, all you need to do is hit save. and now from here, it will bring you to that market and it will say: active. so there are a few things that we need to set up in order to actually start selling to this international market. so the first thing we are going to set up is the domains and languages. so we are going to go to manage and from here it's going to say market domains and subfolders. so under the subfolders it will automatikally set up a suffix for this market. so you can see it's put es, which is going to be for spain. so i'm just going to leave that as the default. but you can name it differently if you want to, but i do recommend just leaving it as the default that shopify recommends. next up, we are going to want to add a language to this market. so, because this is for spain, i'm going to want to add spanish as the language. so in order to do this, it's going to say: select the languages to offer customers in this market. you can manage these languages in shop languages. so we're going to click on shop languages. now, from here, we are going to add a language. so we're going to click on add a language and then from here, we are going to go and choose our language. so i'm just going to scroll down until i see spanish, and then i'm just going to click on this and i'm going to hit add. now, from here, we're going to need to translate our store into that language. so in order to do this, it's going to say: visit the shopify app store in order to translate our store. so we're going to click on visit shopify app store. from here, it's going to show us all of the apps that will allow us to translate our store. so we are going to look for an app called convey this. so we're going to go to search and we are going to type in convey this and now just hit enter. from here, you will see the app that says language translate: convey this. so we are going to click on this and from here we can add this app. now, this app only allows you to translate your store into one other language, so be slightly selective about which language you want to translate your store into. so i'm going to choose spanish, of course, but if you want to go and translate your store into french or into another language, then just prioritize the language that you want to translate your store into, because if you want to translate into multiple different languages, you do have to go for the premium version of this app, so we're just going to go and click on add app and start with the free version. from here, we are going to click on install app. now, once you hit install app, you should be brought to the convey this dashboard. that will look a little something like this, and from here, we are going to hit settings. now, alternatively, you might automatikally be brought over to this page. now, from here, we're going to choose our domain name. we are going to choose our website, tiknology, which will be shopify, and we are going to hit next step. once you click on that, you should be brought over to your settings again, and from here, you can now choose your target language. now, like i say, on the free plan of convey this, you can only choose one language. so you can just come in here. if we just get rid of this, you can just come in here and type in the language you want. so we're just going to choose spanish and then you can just hit save. now, from here, we want to translate the pages on our store. so we're going to go to my translations now. under my translations, it should automatikally pick up your store. so you can see it has picked up my store- the english and spanish version, and then the spanish and spanish version, so it has translated all of the words on my store. so now that we have done this, we can head back to our shopify markets area and start setting up some of the currencies. so from your shopify dashboard, you are going to now click on settings and from here we are going to click on markets. so now, from here, we can go to domains and languages. again we can click on manage, and now, from here, what we can do is we can go and add our language. so, once again, where it says select languages, we are going to go to shopify languages and now, from here, if we scroll down, we will see spanish. so we are going to hit publish on spanish now, and now that we have published that, it will say: customers in supported regions will be prompted to shop in their local language. so we can click on manage in geolocation app. it will then bring you over to this geolocation app and it will show you what your store is going to look like, depending on which country your customer is arriving from. so what we can do is we can go and test this out now. so, if we go and change this from the united kingdom, we can go and choose spain, and now that we have chosen spain, we can go and choose our language, which will be spanish, and now we can see that this is what our store will look like. so it's all coming up in spanish. so that is perfect. so now we can just close this. so that is going to be the default. so, once again, now we can head back to our shopify markets. so we're just going to go and hit settings and from here, once again, we're going to go to domains and languages. we are going to hit manage and now from here, if we scroll down, we are going to choose spanish and we are going to hit save. so now that we have saved that, we can scroll up and we can hit this back button and we can set up the currency. so we can go to currency and pricing and we can hit manage and now, from here, you can go and choose the currency that you want to use for this market. so you can see, for me, it's automatikally set me up with euros, which is the currency for spain. it's using an automatik conversion rate to convert it from pounds to euros and it's also rounding it automatikally to 95 cents for all of my pr.

Enabling Shopify Multiple Currencies
Hey everybody, This is Ori from Astral Web, and I'm going to show you how to add multiple currencies to your Shopify store. So what are multiple currencies? If you have a store- for example, this development one that I just made- you'll be able to allow your customers to view your products and the pricing, right. So if a customer comes and it's a US store, they'll see, you know, this product is $100, this is $179, etc. If you have international customers, you can allow them to have a currency switcher to see your products in different prices, right? So, for example, this product is $100.. If I do offer Canadian dollars, the customer can click and obviously see in the local price, $148 Canadian. Okay, So how do you do that? So it's really really simple. There's very few things we can do and let's just jump into it. So, first of all, you log into your back end store, your back end Shopify, and you click on settings and you go to payment providers. Now this video shows you the default of Shopify, which means you can only use Shopify payments for multiple currencies. Okay, So this the most default way. So what do you do If you use Shopify payments? if you enabled it, it'll look a little bit different from here because this is a development site, but you'll have a manage link right here. And because this is a development site, I did something almost identikal, which is I set up the Shopify development payment. So you don't need to do what I did, but on live site you'd go to the Shopify payments, click on manage. For me it's here, It's a development gateway, so it's the same as the Shopify gateway and you'll just click on manage right on yours. So I click on what we call the bogus gateway or the fake one, and you're going to click on the actual one on your live site. So what do you see? I'm going to scroll down. You're going to see the same things. One of the things you're going to see here by default- and I'm going to remove this- is you're going to see the currency section And by default- if you haven't done this already and you're watching this video, most likely this is what you're going to see: Sell in multiple currencies. So when you set up a store, by default you have your default currency, for example, USD, US dollar. So you're going to click on add and you're going to figure out who is your target audience, who is coming to your website, what currencies you want to allow. So in this case I'm going to allow. for example, I'm going to type in the search box Canadian dollars and, for example, Mexican peso. You can add many, obviously, right, So you got to think about it. Once you do that, it's going to be added here. You can actually save it and proceed. but I want to show you one more thing. So if you click here on the arrow, you'll be able to see how the prices convert. So, for example, $10 USD would convert into $15 Canadian. The reason for that? a few things. number one is Shopify has the integrated currency converter. So what they're going to do is they're going to take the currency, the currency that's your default, in this case US dollars- and they're going to multiply that by whatever the converted price for the Canadian dollar or for the Canadian dollar orthe other currencies. But they're also going to have some kind of currency converter fee. So there's some additional small fee. that's in addition. and then the same thing goes for Mexican peso, right? So $10 would be 245.. So you can actually see how it is. Now. one more thing you can do is you can edit the rounding. but before you edit the rounding, you need to make sure that rounding is enabled here right below. If you don't want to round it, you don't have to, but I've never really seen a store that doesn't have this enabled. because you know, for example, if the US dollar to Canadian dollars, you know 1. let's say 21, something, and $100 would be, you know, 121.47 or some weird number. So you don't want your customers to go and browse and see very, very strange numbers. In addition, many countries have standards like pretty common to see, like .00 or 0.95 in US, but in some countries there is no decimals, etc. So you want to kind of think about what is your rounding logic. So if you go here, Canadian dollar, I can click on edit rounding and I can round them to these different things. So here are these possible selections, right, So I can round them to a round number. I can round them to a 0.99,, 0.95, etc. So let's go and round it to 0.25, just for the sample. I'm going to round this. and then the Mexican dollar. I'm going keep default. So let's look at it for a second. Okay, So Mexican peso. excuse me here rounding, I'm just going to keep it as normal and this is on. Okay, So now everything should be saved. So if I refresh my website, okay, so I can go here. for example, this All Star is $100 and I want to go to Canadian dollars And I go here and you see it's 148.25, right, Everything is 0.25, 0.25, 0.25, right. So you can see the concept, Okay. So that's pretty much it. So let me think about one more thing. So now customers can go and they can browse. This video assumes two things, Okay. Number one is: you use Shopify payments, and the second thing is to make sure your theme actually supports multiple currencies. If you follow the steps that I've done and this does not appear, there's no currency switcher. it means your theme doesn't support. You have to ask your developer to go and add a section in the place you want, for example in the header here on the right, to add that. It's pretty simple. It should take a developer, you know, one, two, three hours. It should be pretty quick, depending on the complexity, of course. So that's it. The other thing that we need to consider is that multiple currencies, multiple payments in different currencies, is available only on the front end, only on the customer-facing site. If your business accepts back end orders, okay, or drafts, right. if you actually create an order, like you get a phone call, for example, and the customer wants to pay by phone, you cannot create the orders via different currencies. They have to be the default. So if I click here on the draft and I go and I select my products- for example, let's just say the stiker, I'm selling it- it's always going to use the USD. You cannot support payments in the different currencies. It's just not the default of Shopify. Okay, Other than that, that's it. So if you have any questions, let me know, Happy to answer. Hope this makes sense. Again, really, really happy that you're viewing this video and happy to answer any questions. Thank you very much. I appreciate it.
