  • So simply any field starts with base_ will have the default store currency while others which doesn't start with base_ will have current store currency right?

grand_total = current currency grand total

base_grand_total = store base currency grand total


So basically the following will applied for the base_ values and non base_ values according to this link as provided by Marius. Difference between Tax Amount and Base Tax Amount

Example : 

base_xxx -----------> default store currency

xxx ----------------> currency store currency
