Multi-currency support

This document describes how to define target currency codes for multi-currency support.
Target currency codes are defined at three levels:

Page level

You can set a JavaScript variable for the target currency at the page level. The site owner sets this variable with the appropriate three-letter ISO 4217 currency code (as listed at below in this document). If the currencyCode variable is not set at this level, the default currency will be the same as the one specified in the report suite. If the variable at the page level conflicts with the variable specified in the report suite, the variable in the report suite will take precedence.

Report suite level

The base currency is specified when creating report suites . This is the default setting for currency and takes precedence over currency codes set at the page level. Thus, if a report suite has orders that accept U.S. Dollars, Euro, and British Pounds and the report suite has a default currency code set to "US Dollars", then the reporting back-end database translates all transactions to US Dollars.
Marketing reports use the exchange rate at the time the image request occurs to translate page-level currency values to the default report-suite currency values. Reports suites use "US Dollars" as the default currency.

Report level

Users can set the default reported currency for user-login session. This can be accessed through the Display Options link in any Conversion Report. Marketing reports use the exchange rate at the time the report is run to translate report-suite currency values into report-specified currency values.

AppMeasurement.js Example

The currencyCode variable can be defined globally in the AppMeasurement.js file. Defining the currencyCode variable in this file ensures that all currency transactions use a uniform currency code. The example below specifies Euros as the currencyCode variable in the CONFIG SECTION of the AppMeasurement.js file. All purchase events will be interpreted by reporting as "Euro" transactions.
/************************** CONFIG SECTION **************************/ 
/* You may add or alter any code config here. */ 
s.account="devnow"
s.currencyCode="EUR"
s.trackInlineStats=true 
s.linkLeaveQueryString=false 
s.linkTrackVars="None" 
s.linkTrackEvents="None" 
***

Additional Implementation Notes

  • Keep in mind that while currency codes can change between pages, all conversion line items defined on a given page request must use the same currency (for example, you can't have Euro, British Pounds, and US Dollars defined on the same page view). If you do not want to do any currency conversion, you should leave the currencyCode value blank. This causes the values sent to be passed directly through to reports with no conversion.
  • Setting an invalid currencyCode (any value not on the Supported currency codes list) causes the entire hit to be excluded and data to not be collected for that transaction. Before setting currencyCode in production, use a test report suite to verify that data is collected and the currency conversion is correct.
  • Currencies that do not use a period (.) as the separator must be modified to use the period instead of the typical separator. For example, Swedish Krona, which uses a comma (,), must be modified to use a period instead of the comma. Analytics uses the comma to separate values, and the data will not be passed in correctly. The period will correctly pass the value to reports.
