The Stripe Payments Multi Currency Addon is to be used with the Stripe Payments Plugin to offer multiple currencies to your potential customers. As the site admin, you can choose which currencies you will offer on your site. The currencies you select will then be displayed in a drop down menu on each of your products. The customers can pick a currency from the dropdown and do the transaction in that currency.
If a customer chooses to proceed using a currency other than the default option, they will be charged the conversion fee you state in the settings menu.
Why Offer Multiple Currencies?
Offering multiple currencies on your website extends the range of customers you can potentially sell your products to. Giving your customers a choice of multiple currencies increases the chance of a successful sale.
Example: A Product that can be Purchased Using Multiple Currencies
The product below shows where the currency drop down is situated on each product.
Example: Currency Drop Down Menu
