As FastSpring’s capabilities grow, so does the potential for international sales in the form of support for an expanding number of languages and currencies. Currently, FastSpring’s order pages support consumer transactions in Euros, Pounds, USD, AUD, CAD, and Yen. The order page is translated into Arabic, Chinese, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Serbian, Spanish and Swedish.
One of the seamless pieces of functionality that the platform provides is transparent to your customers. This is automatic language and currency selection & display through IP address identification.
FastSpring uses IP address detection combined with web browser locale to automatically detect each customer’s country, language, and currency preferences.
In your store, you can set your own foreign currency prices; for currencies for which you do not specify pricing, the prices will be displayed to customers using real-time foreign exchange rates.
Currency exchange rates, including those for cross-sells, can also be calculated with +5% or +10% conversions, to account for market fluctuations. This aids you in controlling sales in foreign countries and can be a great help in calculating product discounts, with a safe margin built in.
FastSpring order pages also allow on-the-fly altering of languages and currencies via the built-in drop-down menu.
