Hi,

I’m setting up an ecommerce store which will sell goods to customers in both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland on the same site. Ideally I would like to spend my time building a single website with a single store but with the following catch:

users browsing to store.co.uk would have goods displayed in Pounds

and

users browsing to store.ie would have goods displayed in Euro.

I’m still trying to get my head around the whole site/store/view idea and was thought that maybe someone here might see how this would be done?

Thanks,

Mark

Thanks for the reply Srinigenie! I’ve watched the podcast on multiple storefronts - which got me so far, but then I couldn’t figure out if it was possible to have each storeview display a different default currency.

Thanks again,

Mark

yes ...for sure ...each store view can have a different default currency ...you need to select the store view on navigating to System-> Configuration. And setup default currency accordingly

Thanks Srinigenie, I’ve tried typing my problem a couple of times, and thought it might be easier if I did a video grab and put it online. You can see it here - Magento vid

Hopefully that made much more sense that my ramblings cheese

Thanks,

Mark

Mark,

nice video - thanks.

I take it that all of your stock is in one location?

Also, did you have any issues re VAT?
