Exchange Rates

OVERVIEW

Exchange rates should be set up for all currencies your company supports to ensure that prices are available in the user's currency of choice when the Commerce system needs to access them. The Commerce system accesses exchange rates when a user's currency preference differs from the currency in which prices are defined.

For example, let's assume that an application supports American dollars (USD) and the Euro (EUR). Now, assume that Part A has a price of $500 and that no price is defined in Euros for this part.

When a user with EUR as their currency preference tries to buy this part, the system invokes the exchange rate rules to convert the price from USD to EUR. The converted amount is displayed as the price to the buyer.

If the part was defined with both a USD and a EUR price, then the system would display the specified EUR price. The exchange rate rules would not be invoked in that case.

To add a new currency, submit a service request on My Oracle Support. To enable (or disable) an existing currency, see Multi-Currency Support.
