Easy Digital Downloads Currency Switcher – EDD 2.5 orders fix and support for dynamic caching

Easy Digital Downloads Currency Switcher – What’s new

Currency Switcher for Easy Digital Downloads has been updated to version 1.3.8.160115. This update brings the following improvements and fixes:

  • Fixed bug in tracking of order amounts in Easy Digital Downloads 2.5. The bug was caused by a radical change in EDD 2.5. The new architecture caused EDD to unexpectedly trigger events related to new orders multiple times in a row (version 2.4 and earlier don’t have this issue). As a result, the order amounts were converted multiple times, resulting in incorrect figures.
  • Fixed conflict with new EDD_Payment class. This new class, introduced in EDD 2.5, is a rough equivalent of the Order class that our Currency Switcher introduced in 2014. While it’s a welcome addition to the EDD architecture, it caused conflicts with our plugin. This update addresses such conflicts.
  • Changed storage of selected currency to use cookies. This new system will allow to use dynamic caching, like it’s done with the Currency Switcher for WooCommerce.
  • Fixed display bugs in Admin area with EDD 2.5:
    • Fixed display of currency symbol in Dashboard.
    • Fixed display of order currency in Order Edit page.

Remember to update your EU VAT rates!

If you didn’t do it already, it’s time to update the VAT rates on your system. From the 1st of January 2016, Romania cut its standard VAT rate from 24% to 20%. This quite good news, as the change will make your products cheaper to your Romanian customers, therefore we would recommend to update your tax settings as soon as possible.

How to update the tax rates

Updating tax rates is a simple operation:

  1. Go to WordPress Admin > WooCommerce > Settings > Tax.
  2. Click on the tax rate you would like to update (e.g. “Standard“), at the top of the page.
  3. Change the rate in the row with the country code “RO” to “20”.
  4. Save the changes.

If you are using our popular EU VAT Assistant, you can also refresh all EU tax rates with a single click. Simply select the rate type at the bottom of the page and click on Update EU VAT Rates.

With our EU VAT Assistant you can update all VAT rates with a single click

All tax rates will be updated automatically to their most recent value. No risk to forgetting any of them behind!

Now all that’s left is double checking that all tax rates are correct. Our plugin updates the rates related to EU countries, therefore you will have to review the rates that refer to countries outside the European Union. If you don’t have any, then you’re done. WooCommerce will now use the new rates for orders placed from now on, and our plugin will collect the tax data automatically.

It couldn’t be easier! 🙂

Easy Digital Downloads Currency Switcher – EDD 2.5 compatibility fix

Easy Digital Downloads Currency Switcher – What’s new

Currency Switcher for Easy Digital Downloads has been updated to version 1.3.5.160108. This update brings the following improvements and fixes:

  • Fixed error at checkout. The error, which was thrown when the checkout process completed, was due to the fact that EDD 2.5 triggers multiple calls to the functions that process the order metadata. Many of those calls lack the information expected by the Currency Switcher, which was unable to complete the order processing. Triggering multiple calls could be considered a bug in EDD, therefore we added checks to make sure that our plugin processes the order metadata only when all the necessary data is available.
