WooCommerce Currency Switcher – Compatibility with WooCommerce 4.1

WooCommerce Currency Switcher and WooCommerce 4.1

We have been testing our Currency Switcher with WooCommerce 4.1 since the release of the Beta version, a few weeks ago. We haven’t encountered compatibility issues so far, we will keep testing the new version to ensure maximum compatibility.

Support for the WooCommerce Admin dashboard

WooCommerce 4.1 still includes the new WooCommerce Admin dashboard, which allows to generate reports about sales, revenue and taxes. We worked with the authors of the WooCommerce Admin tool to make it more flexible, so that it’s now possible to run reports filter by currency. Below is an example of this new filter:

The Aelia Currency Switcher allows to filter the analytics reports by currency.

Work in progress

This feature allows to run currency-specific report, and see the revenue in each currency. As an advancement since WooCommerce 4.0, selecting a currency also changes the currency symbol displayed on the page. As of today, there is still one feature missing from this integration: the analytics tool can’t generate a report with all totals in base currency. This is because the WooCommerce Admin tool stores its own copy of aggregate sales data, which doesn’t include base currency amounts, and doesn’t offer a way to alter the queries it runs to perform such calculations.

We are still discussing the implementation of such filters into the WooCommerce Admin tool. As soon as the WooCommerce Admin will allow us to do so, we will extend the analytics reports to implement a “totals in base currency” option. It’s our target to bring them up to speed, in terms of features, with the standard ones provided by WooCommerce. In the meantime, the “grand totals in base currency” feature is still available in the standard WooCommerce reports.

As always, if you have any questions about the upcoming version of WooCommerce and its new features, please feel free to contact us. We’re always happy to answer. 🙂

WooCommerce Currency Switcher – Compatibility with WooCommerce 4.0

WooCommerce Currency Switcher and WooCommerce 4.0

We have been testing our Currency Switcher with WooCommerce 4.0 since the release of the Beta version, a few weeks ago. We haven’t encountered compatibility issues so far, we will keep testing the new version to ensure maximum compatibility.

Support for the WooCommerce Admin dashboard

WooCommerce 4.0 will include the new WooCommerce Admin dashboard, which allows to generate reports about sales, revenue and taxes. The WooCommerce Admin tool is still fairly rigid and it offers limited possiiblity of customisation, especially from a multi-currency perspective, so we are working its authors to make it more flexible.

One of the features that we are planning to release soon is the possibility of filtering the WooCommerce Admin reports by currency (see below):

The Aelia Currency Switcher allows to filter the analytics reports by currency.

Work in progress on missing features

This feature will make it possible to run currency-specific report, and see the revenue in each currency. Still, due to current limitations in the WooCommerce Admin architecture, two features will be missing:

  1. The currency symbol displayed on the pages is always the one for shop’s base currency. For example, if your shop’s base currency is EUR, and you run the analytics for USD, you will see USD amounts, but you will still see the symbol for EUR. This is a known issue, due to the fact that the WC Admin tool doesn’t allow to override the symbol.
  2. For the moment, the analytics tool can’t generate a report with all totals in base currency. That feature is still available in the standard WooCommerce reports. This is because the WooCommerce Admin tool stores its own copy of aggregate sales data, which doesn’t include base currency amounts. Without such data, the totals in base currency can’t be calculated.

The above are two of the aspects that we are reviewing with the authors of the WooCommerce Admin tools. As soon as the reporting logic will become sufficiently flexible, we will extend the analytics reports. It’s our target to bring them up to speed, in terms of features, with the standard ones provided by WooCommerce.

Of course, should you have any questions about the upcoming version of WooCommerce and its new features, please feel free to contact us. We’ll be ready to answer. 🙂
