I used to be able to change currency through URL.

Example: http://opencart/?currency=USD

But it seems like this was removed in an update? I would greatly appreciate if there was an fix for this :) I found one extension for this but it's for an older version of Opencart.

My site is: http://bersau.se

Running Version 3.0.2.0

Not an option in OC default unless you have or had an extension that did this for you.

Hm I'm pretty sure I have all extensions that I used on previous version of OC. And I find a lot of posts on the forum when people are suggesting the /?currency= trick. And I can't find any extension for it for 3.0.2.0

I found a post where you uploaded a .xml fix for this but I can't install it, probably because it's and old version :)?

This was a total shot in the dark but it worked, can't tell you how happy I am :P

Found this post how to change language via URL:
viewtopic.php?f=190&t=143696#p556676

And just switched the lang & language attributes to "currency" and it worked!

So here is the solution for you who might stumble upon this post if you need to solve this problem:

Insert code below after the line 4 in the file catalog\controller\common\language.php

Code: Select all

if (isset($this->request->get['currency'])) {
 
    $this->session->data['currency'] = $this->request->get['currency'];
 
    $this->response->redirect($this->url->link('common/home'));
}

Well done, and it saved me from looking around for this again,
after I've installed it in a TestShop, but many Moon's ago...
I now installed both Routines, because one never know's,
it may one day be of use ... ;)
Thanks, Ernie

This solution works great but right now it redirects all links with "?currency=" in the end to "index.php?route=common/home" after the currency is changed.
If I wanted to redirect the link in this way,
home.xyz/category-seo-link/product-seo-link/?currency=USD
to change the currency to USD and then go to
home.xyz/category-seo-link/product-seo-link/ how would I go about doing that?
I'm guessing i'd have to change the line

Code: Select all

$this->response->redirect($this->url->link('common/home'));
but to what?

Just add this:

Code: Select all

		if (isset($this->request->get['currency']) && array_key_exists($this->request->get['currency'],$currencies)) {
			$code = $this->request->get['currency'];
			$this->session->data['currency'] = $code;
		}

before this:

Code: Select all

		if (!isset($this->request->cookie['currency']) || $this->request->cookie['currency'] != $code) {
			setcookie('currency', $code, time() + 60 * 60 * 24 * 30, '/', $this->request->server['HTTP_HOST']);
		}		

in catalog/controller/startup/startup.php

no need for redirections.

This worked even better than the change to the language file.
Is it possible to combine this method with something else, like also changing the country that is chosen by default in the cart during shipping estimation (changing the country_id, zone_id, iso_code_3, or something else), so that the currency and the delivery country can be changed together?
