WooCommerce Currency Switcher – Compatibility with WooCommerce 4.3

WooCommerce Currency Switcher and WooCommerce 4.3

We have been testing our Currency Switcher with WooCommerce 4.3 and we haven’t encountered compatibility issues so far. We will keep testing the new version to ensure maximum compatibility. We’re going to release an update for the Currency Switcher, as well as other plugins, to indicate compatibility with the new version.

Support for the new WooCommerce Stats widget

WooCommerce 4.3 includes a new home page in the Admin section, which shows some useful statistics about the shop’s performance. You can read the announcement on the WooCommerce blog: Meet the new WooCommerce Home. We have been working to implement an integration with this new widget directly in the Currency Switcher, to make sure that the totals are correct, in shop’s base currency, like it already happens with the standard reports.

As of today (29 June 2020), such integration is still incomplete, due to the lack of some filters in the WooCommerce Admin tool. That tool is the one that displays the WooCommerce Stats widget, after collecting the order data, and it’s the one to which the Currency Switcher needs to “talk” to make sure that the figures are correct. This communication has already been implemented on the Currency Switcher side, we just need to test it. To be able to do that, we will first need to wait until the authors of the WooCommerce Admin add the required filters to that addon.

As soon as the WooCommerce Admin will allow us to complete the integration, we will run all the necessary tests and release an update for the Currency Switcher with the “totals in base currency” feature. As wrote in an earlier post, we aim to bring all the WooCommerce Admin Analytics up to speed, in terms of features, with the standard reports provided by WooCommerce.

Should you have any questions about our Currency Switcher, our other products, or the integration with the new versions of WooCommerce, please feel free to contact us. We’ll be ready to answer. 🙂
