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):
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:
- 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.
- 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. 🙂
