Important update – WooCommerce Currency Switcher

Currency Switcher for WooCommerce – What’s new

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

  • Removed Product Base Currency feature from variable products. It was a difficult decision, but we had to disable such feature, that we recently introduced, because we discovered some limitations in WooCommerce architecture that prevented it from working correctly when used on variable products. We tried to rewrite the new feature several times, taking different approaches, but the result was always an overly complicated hack that caused performance issues. Because of that, our only option was to temporarily disable the Product Base Currency on variable products, and leave it only for simple products.We will now contact the WooCommerce Team to suggest some ways to improve the ecommerce core, so that we can enable the feature again in a future release. If you would like to have more details about the issue and the reasons behind our decision, please feel free to contact us.
  • Fixed bug related to the integration with Prices by Country plugin. The bug caused the prices specified for a region to be discarded and overwritten by the base ones in some circumstances.
  • Added Yahoo! Finance to the available providers of exchange rates.
  • Improved admin UI. The message stating importance of entering proper exchange rates is now more prominent.
