  2. Hi

    Is it possible to add a new currency base? I am from Argentina and I need the base currency to be the Argentine peso

    • Hi,

      Thank you for your message! Yes, it’s possible to add Argentine Peso but it is required to make some additional customizations through the code of the theme in order to achieve that currency. If you want to add this new functionality to your website, please note that we have a theme customization department. You need to submit a request from here -> and we will come back to you after then we will analyze your request.

      Thank you for your understanding!
      Best regards!
