Global Currency Configuration

Currency configuration helps you:

  • Add and remove currencies from the allowed currencies list.
  • Set the base currency.
  • Specify the conversion rate to and from the base currency.
  • Define the order used when the currencies are displayed to the storefront and management console users.
  • Toggle between the currency display formats (currency code, e.g. USD, and currency symbol, e.g. $).


The organization-level configuration for base currency and display format has higher priority and overrides the system setting. However, to enable a currency on the organization level, you should add it to the list of allowed currencies at the system level first.

To change the default global currency settings:

  1. Navigate to System > Configuration in the main menu.

  2. Select System Configuration > General Setup > Currency in the menu to the left.


    For faster navigation between the configuration menu sections, use Quick Search.

Currency Settings

The following sections are available within the Currency tab:

Name Description
Allowed currencies

Allowed currencies list allows you to select some of all available currencies to enable them in OroCRM.

To add the allowed currency, select it from the list and click Add.

The new row is added to the allowed currencies options table, where you can configure the exchange rates for the newly added currency and may set it as a base currency. See Allowed Currencies Options for more information.

Display format

This setting controls how the currencies will be displayed within the system, as a 3-letter ISO code (e.g. GBP) or as the currency symbol (e.g. £).

To customize the Display Format:

  1. Clear the Use Default check box next to the option.
  2. Select the new option value (either Currency Code or Currency Symbol).

Note: Not all currencies might have symbols. For such currencies, ISO codes are used instead.
