- Currency. The name of the currency, preferably in English, so that as many customers as possible can read it.
- Exchange rate. This rate is to be defined according to your shop's default currency. For example, if the default currency is the Euro and this currency is dollars, type "1.31", since 1€ usually is worth $1.31 (at the time of this writing). Use the converter here for help: If you don't know the exchange rate, leave it as 1, and when the currency is created, update the exchange rates by clicking "Update exchange rates".
- Status. Any currency can be disabled at any time, both from its own edit page, and the currencies table on the "Currencies" page. When you create a new currency, it is disabled by default. Toggle the "Status" option to enable it. The status will change to "This currency is enabled".
