WooCommerce Currency Switcher – Support for Bundles 5.0 and 5.1

Bundles Integration for Currency Switcher – What’s new

The Bundles Addon for the WooCommerce Currency Switcher has been updated to version 1.2.0.161222. This update introduces support for Bundles 5.0.x and preliminary support for the changes introduced in version 5.1 of the plugin. This will make sure that bundle prices will be converted correctly.

Please note that, since version 5.1 of the Bundles plugin is brand new, there might still be bugs that we need to find and address. We would recommend to keep using version 5.0 for the moment, until all issues have been solved.

If you are already using the integration, you should receive a notification about the update soon. If you haven’t installed it yet, you can download it, free of charge, from the plugin page: https://aelia.co/shop/woocommerce-bundles-integration-currency-switcher/.

Although free addons are outside the scope of our support service, if you find any issue please feel free to contact us by using our dedicated support portal. We will review your report and get back to you with our feedback as soon as possible.

Important – You can help!

We are aware of the importance of being able to run a multi-currency shop. In the past three years, we have been campaigning to encourage other developers to introduce native support for multiple currencies, directly in their plugins, instead of having to rely on external integrations (whose capabilities are limited).

As part of our efforts, we contacted the authors of both the Bundles and the Composite Products plugin, as well as many others, to discuss such feature, and provided them with all the information they need to make their plugins multi-currency aware. Unfortunately, the Bundles plugin v5.1 introduced significant changes that seem to go in the opposite direction: some of the new logic added to it is based on the strict (and incorrect) assumption that the shop can only have one currency. Such logic could break if multiple currencies come into play, and cause bundle prices to be calculated or displayed incorrectly.

This is not something that can be addressed by an external solution, such our Bundles Integration. The flaw is in the “single currency” assumption, and it must be fixed directly in the Bundles plugin.

How you can help

If your multi-currency shop relies on the Bundles plugin, you should contact its authors and let them know that having the possibility of running a shop with multiple currencies is of critical importance to you, and that you would like to see such feature introduced in the Bundles and Composite Products plugin. The developers are aware of our solutions, and they have our contact details. We will be more than happy to assist them adding multi-currency support to their products.

Please keep in mind that the more customers require such feature, the sooner it will be introduced! 🙂

Thanks in advance for your time and for your continued support!

Advanced WooCommerce Reporting adds native support for multi-currency reports

One of our clients informed us that the popular Advanced WooCommerce Reporting plugin now supports multi-currency setups. Its authors introduced this feature in version 3.0 of their product, which was released at the beginning of October 2016.

This is a fantastic news, as it means that it will be possible to produce advanced reports, with a few clicks, and have a complete overview of how your shop is performing. Make sure that you have a look at the latest version of Advanced WooCommerce Reporting, you can find it on CodeCanyon.

It’s great to see more developers join our efforts to make WooCommerce and Easy Digital Downloads fully support multi-currency scenarios. We would like to thank Proword (the plugin’s authors), for recognising the importance and relevance of multi-currency shops, and for the work they’ve done in supporting merchants who run these shops. Thanks to them, tracking the performance of worldwide sales has become easier than ever!
