Can I link to my store in a specific currency?
Yes, you can display store prices in a specific currency by defining a URL parameter, here's how to set this up: Link Your Store to a Specific currency.
Why do the prices revert to my specific currency upon checkout?
Since Shopify does not allow any edits to be made at checkout, Coin is unable to convert currencies at the checkout page.
Are customers able to checkout with their currency?
At this time, Shopify does not allow stores to check out in multiple currencies and they do not allow developers to add code or change the checkout section of Shopify, so you must check out in your home currency.
How can I reduce the confusion among customers regarding the currency conversion?
The Coin app will automatically convert all prices to a user's local currency, however, once your shoppers hit check out, all monetary amounts will be shown in your store's base currency. You can add an informative message to the cart page to reduce any confusion, here's more info on how to set this up: Inform Customers About the Currency Conversion.
Why is everything displaying in strange prices?
Coin may display in strange prices if there are conflicts, you will need to remove any conflicting currency converter apps. In some cases, some theme already has them built in, you can disable them within your theme's settings.

Coin is not automatically converting the prices, what's wrong?
