WooCommerce Currency Switcher – April 2018 maintenance update

WooCommerce Currency Switcher – What’s new

Currency Switcher for WooCommerce has been updated to version 4.5.18.180417. This update brings the following improvements and fixes:

  • Improved logic used to save the order currency for manual orders. The new logic should reduce the chance of conflicts with other plugins and ensure that the selected currency is always applied to the newly created order.
  • Fixed display of variation prices on variable product pages. A small bug could prevent the variation prices, which are normally displayed when a variation is selected, to be hidden on the product page of a variable product. That glitch was just cosmetic. It didn’t affect the actual variation price, which was correct when the variation was added to the cart.
