    Krish – yes it is standard on some products. My feeling is that multi currency is an edge module that a low proprtion of users need (although I know you do with your business), as such it is a prime candidate to be an add-on rather than core function…

    I think the importance of multi-currency depends on your location and the type of customers who use your product.

    Almost all of our customers in Northern Ireland (where we are based) require multi-currency as they do a lot of trading with the Republic of Ireland in the Euro Zone.
