    Is it possible to remove the numbers after the decimal? If so, how?

    Great plugin by the way..!

      No that’s not possible at the moment, maybe in a later version. If you need this feature now, please contact me per mail for a quote.

    I am using WP e-Commerce and WordPress 3.4.2 with a theme from Storefront themes ‘Gridport’. I do not see any tooltips on any prices. Even on checkout page. Could the fact that it is under maintenance mode right now be a problem. I am logged in when looking at the front end?
    Happy to supply a login if needed, just email me if required

    I just found your plugin today and I was so happy to finally find a plugin that does all the modification to wp e-commerce that I need!

    I wanted to buy the full package but then I found a little bug?
    When the Customer places an order, he gets the styled e-mail but it neither shows the tax (it shows 0% instead of 19% here in germany) nor does it add the tax to the final price… Is that a bug or am I missing something?

    Thank You!

    PS: Just found out that the tax works if i put it in the e-mail with a single parameter. But within the product table the problem still persists…

      Hi hadesldu,
      Please have a look at the wp-ecommerce setting.
      Did you enable the option “Product prices are tax inclusive”
      on the tab “Tax”?
      As also answered to your question here: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/tax-missing

        Thanks for quick response! No, I selected “tax exclusive” because all our ~900 products in store got net prices… but normally wpec is adding the tax automatically in the checkout area…

    How do you see it on a page. I’m using an ecommerce template from http://www.templatic.com and installed your plugin but can’t see where it is on pricing?

      Hi Brian,
      Do you use a the wp e-commerce shop plugin or another shop that comes with your theme?

    Hi Hannes,

    I was wondering how I can use this in a normal wordpress site that offers tours.

    If it’s not possible would you mind emailing me with a basic quote to make it work for my site please?

    The site is listed above.

    Kind regards

      Hi Clyde,
      Sorry for the late reply…
      It’s not possible at the moment, are you still interested in a customization?

    Hi This plug-in is a great find – but it’s not working on
    the products page. I have the prices visible on the products page
    (in grid display), however the conversion doesn’t work. I find it
    only works on the individual product page, and the checkout. Is
    there a fix? Thanks in advance

      Hi Matt,
      When I created the plugin this was possible, but in the meantime wp e-commerce was upgraded several times and my plugin isn’t up to date any more.
      I’ll have a look in a few days.
      Regards, Hannes

    Nice plugin but I don’t see a way to limit the decimal places. I just hovered over a product and got a conversion of 365.060181 which is crazy. It should by default limit to 2 decimal places. No one needs more than that. Is this something you will be adding? Also you mentioned to Matt you were going to update the plugin to be compatible with the newest version of WPEC and Gold Cart. When will that happen?

    Thanks Hannes!

      Hi Robert,
      I can’t work on this plugin in the next weeks, I’ve to much running projects and also many feature requests for the shop styling plugin.

    Hi guys,

    Question – Do you have a Woo Commerce Version of this?

    • Hannes
      2013/06/27 07:08

      Hi Jess,
      No sorry, not now, but I started my first WooCommerce project a week ago, so if you want to support the development of this plugin a donation (see button above) would help me to integrate the plugin development in my WooComemrce project.
      regards, Hannes

    I like this plugin, but there are a couple limitations that I would like to see fixed in a future update.

    The plugin doesnt convert the prices on the checkout page, only the product page.. That should change.

    Also, how can I add a currency to the plugin.. Guatemala is missing.


    • Hannes

      Hi Matt,
      The Guatemalan Quetzal doesn’t exist in Googles Currency API, so I can’t convert it, sorry.
      Doesn’t it work in WP E-commerce or Easy Digital Downloads Checkout page?
      Can you post a link to your page (in case the plugin is still activated?)

    I am wanting to know if there is a way to have the price automatically display in the users currency based on their IP?

    I want to set different prices in 2 or more currencies say AUD, USD, Pounds & EURO but have the shop display these set prices based on the users location.

    Not sure if this is possible… but would love to know!

      Hi Danielle,
      The plugin shows about 50 different currencies based on the user IP. But if you don’t want it to show the tooltip you can also use parts of the code to replace the currency field of the product.
      But I think the payment gateways have to use the original currency again.
      If you need a quote for this customization please tell me a few more details.
      br, Hannes

    Demo is showing:
    “0,00 = 0,00
    set conversion currency”

    Maybe there is something wrong with Googles Currency API?

    Plugin is not working at the moment, always shows 0,00 = 0,00

    Hi – I feel like I’m so close to getting it to work. I’m able to edit the settings, on the website I get a conversion pop-up, I enter the conversion currency…but it doesn’t convert. What am I doing wrong/missing?

    Thanks! Marie
