RESOLVED 1.4.2 & 1.5.0 Problem with Currencies when base isn’t US Dollar.

If the ‘Base Currency’ is not set to ‘US Dollar’, the currency box disappears and getCurrencyCount() always returns 0… only one currency installed.  That wasn’t the case, I had the Base to GBP and all other currencies enabled.

Then by setting the Base to US Dollar and getting the Currency Selection box back, I can only choose USD or Euro.

I’ve searched the forums and can’t find anything.  Anyone else having problems with the currencies?

Anyone?  I can’t believe I’m the only person seeing this problem.

In case anyone else has the same issue, I figured it out after some playing.

All you need to do is set up the currency conversion rates - System>Manage Currency Rates

Update the rates with Travelex, or whatever it’s called, and it works.
