5 Step 2: languages and currencies configuration

This page was created for Magelia WebStore version 0.1



5.2 Currencies 

Administration > Currencies

Magelia provides a multi-currency environment and allow price definition for one product in various currencies. You can easily create currencies if needed.

Additional important information:

  • Currencies are managed globally and can be associated with different websites managed on the WebStore environment.
    Modifying or deleting currencies may impact all websites operating on the same Magelia WebStore environment.

  3. Create additional languages if necessary.

5.2.3 Delete currencies

We advise you to consider all the implications of currency deletion before you proceed. Currencies are defined for all websites installed in your environment and deleting a currency.

If you simply wish to prevent the use of a currency for your website, you should consider removing the currency from your website in the Admin > Site Settings screen.




You should be very cautious because deleting a currency may cause data loss. Before proceeding, check that product prices are not defined in the currency that you wish to delete. A currency can only be deleted if it is not already attached to a country. If such a dependency exists, first remove the currency from the country before you delete a currency.

If you have read all the warnings above and still want to proceed, simply click on the delete icon next to a currency.
