Accepting multiple currencies means never turning away money. In tourist areas, country borders, or near airports or other international travel hubs the ability to accept a currency and balance the books between them can increase the number of sales made. For organizations operating in multiple countries or ares, the ability to switch between currencies for analysis can highlight efficiencies in sales, or losses that may be more or less apparent without the ability to toggle between currencies and updates conversion rates.
To change currency you make adjustments in the settings module.
First, click the settings module on the top.
Click on currencies, under invoice settings in the left scroll.

Click new on the top right corner.
Input the information accordingly. Name , Currency Code, and its rate compared to the main currency.
Make sure to check the box next to “is a main currency”, if it will be the main currency.
It is very important to click Save on the top right corner.
Once saved, click on the arrow facing up to bring the new currency to top of the list.
This will standardize the new currency.
