This week we fixed this. We now support the following currencies:
- US dollars
- Japanese Yen
- Canadian dollars
- New Zealand dollars
- Australian dollars
It will be interesting to see what impact this has on our conversions, however we've already noticed an uptick of European blogs posting about us.
On a technical level, we're using the free IPInfoDB IP database to determine the user's likely country, and then we choose the currency from that. We then store the currency in a cookie. You may also notice that it takes 2 pageviews for the correct currency to turn up. This is because we detect the currency while the first page is loading. However that's okay because that is usually the homepage, which doesn't contain prices.
Please test it out for us and let us know what you think! Did we select the best currency for you?
