Currency and Locale Settings

Stripe currently supports 30+ languages, 45+ countries, and 135+ currencies. WP Simple Pay lets you set the locale (language) for your payment forms as well as the default currency, currency format, and tax rate for your site’s region.

For example, some companies based in France may need the French locale, Euro currency, right-align the currency symbol position and use commas in place of decimals.

Default Currency Settings

In your WordPress admin, go to Simple Pay Pro → Settings → General → Currency. Here you can modify any of these settings for your entire site, except locale.

Default CurrencySet the default currency for your payment forms. Select or search for any supported currency. A different currency can be chosen on a per Price option.
Currency PositionSelect left or right side with an optional space separating the currency symbol and amount.
SeparatorsUse a comma when formatting decimal amounts and use a period to separate thousands. If enabled, amounts will be formatted as "1.234,56" instead of "1,234.56". Also, set the Language option (controls number formatting) in your Stripe dashboard under User Settings

Locale Settings

To change your locale settings in your WordPress admin, go to Simple Pay Pro → Settings → Stripe → Locale

Stripe Checkout LocaleSpecify "Auto-detect" to display Stripe Checkout in the user's preferred language, if available, or choose your desired locale. This setting applies to the Stripe Checkout form displays only.
Stripe Elements LocaleSpecify "Auto-detect" to display the Credit Card field placeholders and validation messages in the user's preferred language, if available, or choose your desired locale. This setting applies to the Embedded and Overlay form displays only.
