Using Currency Conversion with on Other / Custom Platforms

How to dynamically change prices in, depending on the visitor's currency selection

There a multiple ways of working with currency conversion in A simple way to make it work is outlined below.

1. Sending the different prices in the feed

Clerk needs to know the prices of each product in the different currencies. The easiest way to do this is to send them as a list of formatted prices, in your Data Feed.



   "products": [
            "id": 1,
            "name": "Cheese",
            "description": "A nice piece of cheese.",
            "price": 100,
            "list_price": 50,
            "categories": [25, 42],
            "image": "",
            "url": "",
            "prices_formatted": ['$ 100', '€ 87.70', '£ 68.68'],
            "list_prices_formatted": ['$ 50', '€ 43.86', '£ 34.35']
            "id": 2,
            "name": "A pound of nuts",
            "description": "That's a lot of nuts!",
            "price": 100,
            "categories": [1],
            "image": "",
            "url": "",
            "prices_formatted": ['$ 100', '€ 87.70', '£ 68.68']

2. Creating a Formatter

In the tracking script inserted on every page of your shop, you can define JavaScript functions, that can be used inside of our templates.

Here you can define a function that takes your price-list as argument, and returns the price for a specific index, that you can choose which matches the place of the currency in the price-list.


 Clerk('config', {
        key: 'Your_API_Key',
        formatters: {
            currency_selector: function (price_list) {
              var currency_index = INSERT_CURRENCY_INDEX;
              return price_list[currency_index];

3. Using the Formatter in Clerk Designs

Lastly, you can use this function as part of your design.
