User selectable currency

15 May 2018
Would it be possible to set one master currency, in my case GBP which will be used via paypal and as a default on the products, then on the front end let the user select their currency on mybb, if they choose a currency that isn't the "master" currency, it would use a converter to convert all the products prices to their chosen currency.

Currency could be selectable via usercp, or when shown a product such as the subscription page or on attachments.

That'll be feasible if I knew a way to reliably get a conversion rate. PayPal does not expose any API AFAIK, they used to with Adaptive Payments but it's now available for selected customers.

Could you not use a third party api like this one, then have a disclaimer that all prices are paid in Currency1(GBP) and any conversion rates may not be fully accurate?

Yeah, maybe. Thank you for pointing this out. I will investigate how feasible will this be, but don't expect it too soon. I am going abroad 10 months starting from August so I will be unavailable for a while.

No problem, it is not a needed feature. :)
