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:

Woocommerce Admin - Currency 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. 🙂
