Swapping currency symbol to written currency

Recommended Posts

Site URL: https://www.cdsecurity.dk

Hi all, hope you're doing well. 

To get the payment I want for the site, I need to change the currency from 'kr' to 'DKK'. Its important for it to be changed both in the products that's listed, but ALSO in the checkout.

I've tried searching the forum, and maybe I'm just not doing it right, but I couldn't seem to find a code that worked for me. Hope someone can help. 

Thanks for reading.

Hi, have you tried changing the currency of your store to DKK? You can do use by going to Commerce > Payments > Store Currency 😊

Please give this a 👍 if it helps

Hi Jia, thanks for your answer 🙂
Yes, i already ahve that setting on, and it literally says currency (DKK), but it writes it as 'kr', which is kinda like the equivalent of writing '$' instead of 'USD'. And I need it to say 'DKK', in order to get official danish payment setup, to use danish credit cards (called Dankort).

I don't really understand the benefit of showing prices with the full code of 'DKK' instead of using the standard 'kr'. Can you explain?

Although you'll be able to accept co-branded Visa/e-Dankort cards using the Visa processing route of PayPal or Stripe, you won't be able to accept Dankort cards through the Squarespace checkout if they are not Visa co-branded because Squarespace does not have a contract with a Dankort Acquirer.

I was told by the Company 'Nets', who provides payments solutions, that in order to have them handle the payments, it was a requirement to have DKK. I don't see the benefit of showing DKK either, but It's not exactly something I can negotiate. That's just their rules. And most danish webshops use Nets not to mention, its very trusted by the danes, so thats why I'm keen to comply.

Just to be clear, you won't be able to use 'nets' with Squarespace Commerce.

I agree with Paul's messages, that you can't use nets with Squarespace Commerce. Squarespace's payment gateways are limited to PayPal and Stripe.

However, here's a code you can add to css to change the 'kr' to 'DKK' on the product page. You can't edit the one on the checkout page with css. Hope this helps!

body.native-currency-code-dkk .sqs-money-native:after {
  content: ' DKK';
}
