autoConvert Select – Reading common currency symbols based on website domain

Some of the common currency symbols are used by more than one currency. The most common example is the dollar sign ($) – used by US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Colombia, and more.

autoConvert will convert values with these common currency symbols based on domain of the website where the value is selected. Domain matching is only used for currency symbols, and not for the three character currency codes.

An example:

AUD 20‘ will always be read as Australian Dollars irrespective of the website,
$ 20‘ will only be read as Australian Dollars on websites ending in ‘.au‘. Elsewhere it will be read as US Dollars.

The currency symbols covered by domain-matching are:

  1. $
    • US Dollar (default)
    • Canadian Dollar (.ca)
    • Australian Dollar (.au)
    • New Zealand Dollar (.nz)
    • Colombian Peso (.co)
    • Argentinian Peso (.ar)
    • Chilean Peso (.cl)
    • Dominican Peso (.do)
    • Jamaican Dollar (.jm)
    • Brazilian Real (.br)
  2. £
    • British Pound (default)
    • Egyptian Pound (.eg)
  3. ¥
    • Japanese Yen (default)
    • Chinese Renminbi Yuan (.cn)
  4. kr
    • Swedish Krona (default)
    • Norwegian Krone (.no)
    • Danish Krone (.dk, .fo)
    • Icelandic Krone (.is)
  5. Rs
    • Sri Lankan Rupee (default)
    • Pakistani Rupee (.pk)

The top-level-domain (TLD) next to each currency above indicates which websites will use that currency for the relevant symbol. When the domain does not match that TLD, the default currency will be used.

That’s all, folks!
