The Currency module is designed to manage currencies and their exchange rates. This module
is required for proper functioning of the Commercial catalog and e-Store modules. You
can manage currencies in the Currency form:
Settings -> Currency -> Currencies
Note: there is always a base currency which is one of the existing currencies. Rates of other currencies are calculated relative to the base currency.
Each currency has the following parameters:
- symbol identifier (e.g. USD, EUR);
- face value (here: the value of a currency unit);
- default rate (used for conversion unless newer rates exist in the Currency rates form);
- currency name and format for each language in the system.
