Using The EURO_RATE Parameter
For all of the international versions of uShop, we have now added an
option to display the EURO total in the shopping cart in addition to
the normal total. To utilize this feature, you just have to set the
new EURO_RATE parameter in your shopping cart applets.
The EURO dollar total is determined with the formula:
Euro Total = Total / Euro Rate
Where the Euro_Rate is the current conversion rate from your
currency to the EURO dollar. You can look up the current coversion
rates at the Yahoo Currency Converter.
Or to determine the conversion rate, you can also use the
conversion rate form at Yahoo. Just make the
selections as illustrated below:
Note: If you do use the EURO_RATE parameter, then you really only need
to specify it in any one of your uShopCart applets - however, the euro_rate parameter
will not take effect until the customer views an HTML page with the uShopCart and
the EURO_RATE parameter set.
Note: When using the EURO_RATE parameter, the shopping cart applets will
first only show the subtotal and the EURO subtotal...until the customer views the
order form at least once. After that, the shopping cart applets will show the
subtotal, shipping, handling (if applicable), VAT, total, and the EURO total.
Note: If you do not want to display the EURO total in the shopping
cart applets, then do not specify the EURO_RATE parameter at all.
