Store based in europe with euro prices

i know it is possible to use the currency converter and that works nicely


For the US we need a different price level. Is it possible to have a certain pricelevel for euro and another price level for usd for a product in the same store?

Yes, have a different attribute known as 'usPrice' or something similar. When you detect the user is using that currency simply display instead of the 'regular' price. Do a similar thing in the cart, etc.

Magento uses 'get' functions to get attributes from objects. In this scenario the object will be something called a Product. These get functions look something like this:

$productPrice = $product -> getPrice();

Now, in the admin side of Magento you can define something called a 'custom attribute'. In your example we can call this custome attribute usPrice, which we will access using this:

$usProductPrice = $product -> getUsPrice();

On the products page you can use an if statement to get either the productPrice or the usProductPrice, which should look something like:

if(*however you're detecting source of user* == 'United States'){
    $price = $product -> getUsPrice();
    $price = $product -> getPrice();

Or, if you have your own conversion rate you could just multiply that by the base price and be done with it.

Hope this helps!

  • Thanks for letting me know it is possible... but this doesn't make sense to me though... would you mind explaining a bit more so a non programmer can follow this ;-)

  • Personally I'd use something like a dropdown menu to select difference currencies / languages / etc. But that's just me. Select 'answered' if you feel I have answered this question and open another one as to how to detect the country that the user resides within! Dec 5, 2014 at 14:54
