I want to change my quote currency code to EUR when an order is placed in any other currency.

I tried writing event and observer of event sales_order_place_before. In my observer I have this code

    $quoteId = $observer->getEvent()->getOrder()->getQuoteId();
    $quote = $this->cartRepository->get($quoteId);

But after order is placed currency did not change to Euro.

I tried another event sales_quote_save_after, where currency is changed after every save of quote, but in that case, even the customer will see that his cart currency is changed to EUR, which I don't want. I only want to change the currency when order is being placed (the customer should not be shown this anywhere, except on my orders)

  • I tried it, but it did not work.

Instead of sales_order_place_before && sales_quote_save_after use this event sales_model_service_quote_submit_before and write your logic for this but don't call save function in the observer

  • let me know if any issues

  • I tried with the sales_model_service_quote_submit_before, it din't work. In my observer if I die and execute again without die, the order is placed in EUR currency. Any suggestions on this?

  • At the end of my observer I wrote die, the order was not paced but the quote currency was updated to EUR, next I remove the die, and again place the same order the order is placed in EUR.
