Data Feed Currency Conversion

We support currency conversion on all feeds, included as part of our Standard feed service. We use to obtain up-to-date conversion rates at the time your feed is generated. We can convert between all major international currencies.

Please note that many US-based shopping search engines require a US presence. Please contact the shopping engine's merchant support to confirm.

Checklist for Currency Setup for Product Feeds

Complete the steps below to ensure successful product feeds in non-USD currencies.

  1. Ensure that the correct currency code is entered on the Define Fields page of the feed for the price and sale_price fields.
  2. If the BigCommerce store supports multiple currencies, add "&setCurrencyId=N" to the link field.
  3. For Google Feeds, go to the Feed settings and ensure the Default Currency is set to the appropriate value.
  4. For Google Feeds, look at the countries assigned to the feed. For each country assigned to the feed, ensure that the Shipping Rates are in the same currency code.

Please contact for assistance with multi-currency product feeds.

International Google Shopping Feeds to the UK and Other Countries

Google Shopping requires you to submit a separate product feed for each country that you want to target. The feed content must be in the local language and currency.

If you have English-content, then we can set up Google Shopping feeds for the following, English-speaking countries:

  • United Kingdom (GBP - British Pound)
  • Switzerland (CHF - Swiss Franc)
  • Australia (AUD - Australian Dollar)
  • Canada (CAD - Canadian Dollar)

The feed will convert your US Dollar prices to the local currency automatically.

For all other countries, Google requires translated product listings. We do not provide translation services, but if you have content in the local language, we can submit your feed. (Our feeds are encoded as Unicode/UTF-8.)


You will need to make some modifications to your website to comply with the Google Shopping requirements for international product listings.

Google requires that the product price be displayed in the local currency on your product page.

It is not sufficient to select the currency based on the IP address of the visitor. The page must show the price in the local currency regardless of the visitor's location.

The ideal solution is to set up a URL parameter, like "currency=USD", that we can appended to each URL via your feed settings. Your store's product pages should be programmed to display the currency based on the URL parameter. Your store should remember the selected currency via a cookie, and have a drop-down box in the header to switch between currencies.

If you have a Yahoo Store, you can add the Currency Convertor Add-on for Yahoo Stores to your website.

At this time, it appears to be sufficient to provide a link or button to a currency convertor on your product pages, but this may not hold for much longer.

We recommend adding a widget or pop-up to your product pages, rather than linking to an external site, so you can keep visitors on your page.

Oanda provides a Free Currency Convertor Widget, as well as a subscription service specifically for merchants. Many other providers also provide free widgets. Just search Google for free currency converter widget.

We provide free currency conversion with our Standard feed service. Your product price in USD will be converted to another currency using the conversion rate (as provided by Yahoo! Finance) at the time the feed is generated.


There is no need to set up a separate Google Merchant Account or Adwords account. You can simply add the feeds into the same Merchant Account. You may need to add some additional shipping rules.

In your account on our site, we will create a copy of the feed with a different file name like googlebase-uk.txt, and add the currency conversion settings.

Example of Requirements for UK

  • Products must be listed in English.
  • Product landing pages must be in English.
  • Product prices must be listed in pounds sterling (GBP), including all applicable taxes [e.g. VAT tax] and charges except shipping.
  • Products must be shippable throughout the mainland UK. If you ship from outside the UK, your shop must cover all custom charges.

Google Shopping Canada

Please be aware that Product Listing Ads for Canada only appear on, because there is currently no equivalent to Google Shopping in Canada.

Multi-Language Feeds Character Set Support - UTF-8

Our system is implemented end-to-end with the UTF-8 character set, providing full compatibility with any language.

UTF-8 character set is used everywhere in the system, including how data is imported, how it is stored in our system, how it is displayed on our website, and in the feed files that are generated and submitted.

You can rest assured that international feeds in any language will be generated correctly by our system.

Often times, product catalogs built from a variety of sources will contain encoding errors that result in gibberish characters and text. This is frequently the case with content generated using Microsoft Office products, which use Windows-1252 encoding that translates poorly to UTF-8. Our system has the capability to automatically correct these errors if needed.
