Why Use Shopready To Show Currency In WooCommerce?
Shopready is the easiest way to change a currency symbol in WordPress. It’s also the simplest method to add customizability to WooCommerce and Elementor. This is one of the main reasons to use Shopready if you run a business website or online shop.
WooCommerce & Elementor Support Customizability
WooCommerce is the most powerful plugin for an e-shop. It has all the must-have features you need to start a business. But when it comes to customizability, it lacks in-depth features.
This is where Shopready comes in. We created the plugin to fill in the gap with WooCommerce and Elementor. They support all the major functions, and then Shopready enables you to take customization to the top level.
You can add extra widgets to Elementor and add further editing options to existing WooCommerce and Elementor modules.
Wide Plugin Compatibility & Optimization
Shopready is optimized for all mainstream eCommerce plugins. It’s optimized to work best with WooCommerce & Elementor. So you’ll never have to worry about optimization or lag issues when using the plugin.
Save the hours scouring through StackOverflow trying to find a third-party optimization code for your website!
The plugin is compatible with other popular plugins like WP Rocket, too.
Made By Developers, For Developers
We created Shopready keeping in mind the problems we faced ourselves as developers. For this reason, we were able to narrow down the plugins and widgets we need to focus on the most and optimized Shopready accordingly. The plugin is filled with features to quicken and strengthen your workflow.
We regularly check the plugin for improvement opportunities and get tons of feedback from our team. The payments in multi-currency features were actually suggested by one of our fellow developers.
All considered, we’re super passionate about making it the best WooCommerce supplement on the market. This is why we believe you should stick with us and believe in Shopready.
If you came here wanting to know how to show currency in WooCommerce, we hope you have your answer. Shopready is the way to go. We hope you keep using our plugin and keep giving us feedback to keep improving the product!
As a final note, we’d recommend using some WordPress editing to design and edit the currency drop-down menu. We focused mostly on the function when creating the plugin, so design-wise not much is going on.
Go through some editing and designing to tweak the drop-down to your liking and you should have a solid-looking website.
