Currency / Exchange Rates

 

Currency Designation

In Customer Focus Ultimate, the currency generated in forms and orders is dependent on the recipient of the currency.

For example, when creating a purchase order the currency of the supplier will be used. I.E. if the PO is to be sent to a German supplier, the currency will be euros, whereas if it is to be issued to a supplier in the US, the currency will be dollars.

 

Exchange Rates (GBP – Euro)

If a custom exchange rate been set within the system, this will be used for any relevant conversion. However, if no custom rate has been set the system will use the rate for that day as defined at http://www.ecb.europa.eu/stats/eurofxref/eurofxref-daily.xml

 

Setting a Custom Exchange Rate

As a starting point, it is important to note that the currency conversion area of Customer Focus Enterprise is only available to distributors.

To set a custom exchange rate for euros, first navigate to the settings portion of your website

 

Once there, locate the system tab and click on ‘Currency Settings’, as shown below

 

On this screen you can define a custom exchange rate as well as define the date you wish this conversion to start from. To apply the settings, simply add the desired exchange (in euros) for £1, and select a date from the pop-out calendar when clicking on the start date field.

NOTE: For reference, the market exchange rate is provided towards the bottom of the screen (the portion of text displayed in red).
