Give Currency Switcher 1.5.0

A WordPress Donation Plugin To: Help Protect Endangered Species Give is built from the ground up to provide an intuitive, easy to use donation form so your donors spend less time fiddling and more time giving. Forms can be added to your website as a stand-alone page, embedded via our shortcode generator, or placed into any of your theme’s sidebars with the Give widget.

Allow your donors to switch to their currency of choice and increase your overall giving with the Give Currency Switcher add-on. Select from an extensive list of currencies, set the currency based on your users’ location, pull from live exchange rates and more!

Introducing the Currency Switcher Add-on for GiveWP

Donors often prefer to donate using their own country’s currency. Providing donors the option to switch to their currency can reduce abandoned donations and increase overall giving. The Currency Switcher add-on has been developed with an intuitive interface and powerful features designed to give you flexibility when setting up your multi-currency donation forms.

Let’s review some of the most powerful features:

Intuitive Multi-Currency Interface

Switching currencies should be super simple for your potential donors. We’ve adapted Give’s already intuitive interface to support multi-currency options with support for mobile, tablet, and of course computer interfaces.

Geolocation Based Currency Switching

Take the confusion out of giving in a foreign currency. Enable automatic selection of the donor’s currency depending on the visitor’s location. This feature uses the leading provider of GeoLite data, MaxMind, to detect where a users’ location is using the most reliable methods possible.

Easily enable Geolocation without having to sign up for any third-party service. Customize a fallback should the donor’s location be hidden or not found.

Automatically Updated Exchange Rates

Take the hassle out of exchange rates. The Currency Switcher add-on allows you to select from leading exchange rate APIs to retrieve accurate rates for all your accepted currencies.

Custom Set Currency Rates

Often when switching currencies the donation levels won’t be even amounts. If you’d like more control over the amounts for each currency then you can easily adjust it manually. This works for both set and multi-level donation forms.

Customize the currency amounts per level to ensure you're amounts are always even numbers.

Granular Gateway Control

Certain gateways only support specific currencies. To fine-tune which gateways you accept we’ve built in a great utility. Select which currencies, on a global and per form basis, that you accept per payment gateway. Give is the only donation platform that features this type of per-gateway support for various currencies.

Extensive Add-on Compatibility

We know you want to use this add-on alongside our others so we’ve ensured it’s compatible to the fullest. The Currency Switcher add-on is compatible with our other “Must-have” add-ons such as:

  • Recurring Donations
  • Tributes
  • Fee Recovery
  • Most payment gateways*

(*) Note: Many payment gateways will convert the donor’s currency back to the base currency you’re accepting via the gateway. For instance, Stripe will take Euros and convert to USD if you’re based in the USA. The end result is you will get paid in your base banking currency. Check your specific gateway for currency compatibility prior to purchasing.

Customizable Per Form

Only want to enable currency switching on a specific donation form? No problem. What about enabling it for all donation forms except a few certain ones. You can do that too. We’ve developed in global and per form settings that allow you to enable settings for all forms or only for specific donation forms. The choice is yours!

Additional Highlights

  • Customizable Exchange Rates: If you want to control exchange rates you can lock an exchange rate to a specific value, and not have it updated automatically, and set it manually using your own custom value.
  • Extensive Currency Support: Choose from more than 100+ currencies for your donors to select from.
  • Customizable Text: Change the text that appears when a currency is switched along and use several template tags displaying the base currency, new currency, and exchange rate.
  • Saved Currency Preference: When a donor gives when signed in to their account and returns their preferred currency will be the default one.F
