Multiple currencies for Django Shop

This app adds support for multiple currencies to django SHOP.


Do not use (yet)! This app is still under development and might not work at all.


This requires django SHOP to work (

  • Add shop_multiplecurrencies to your INSTALLED_APPS in your
  • Add shop_multiplecurrencies.middleware.MultipleCurrenciesMiddleware to your MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES setting
  • Add a list of currencies to the SHOP_CURRENCIES setting like so
SHOP_CURRENCIES=[ # lowercase codes, please
    ['chf', 'swiss franc'],
    ['eur', 'euro'],


  • Add a MultipleCurrenciesField to your product model
from django.db import models
from shop_multiplecurrencies.fields import MultipleCurrenciesField
from shop.util.fields import CurrencyField

class MyProduct(models.Model):
    # my fields ...
    price = MultipleCurrenciesField(CurrencyField)

The model will in our example have two fields: price_chf and price_eur.

  • Extend BaseOrder with an additional field that tells us which currency the order was completed in
from django.conf import settings
from shop.models.defaults.bases import BaseOrder
from shop.models.defaults.managers import OrderManager

class MyOrder(BaseOrder):
    currency = models.CharField(max_length=6, choices=settings.SHOP_CURRENCIES)
    objects = OrderManager()

    def save(self, *args, **kwargs):
        self.currency = get_currency()
        super(MyOrder, self).save(*args, **kwargs)

    class Meta(object):
        abstract = False
  • Use the currency template filter in your templates to prefix the price with the correct currency
{% load currency %}

<p>This product's price is {{ price|currency }}</p>
