Switch allows you to work with two currencies in the system. If your Switch account has a different currency setting from your OTA extranet settings, you can set a secondary currency in Switch to match what you have in your extranet. The important thing to note is there needs to be consistency, you must work with all OTAs in the same currency.

Example: On Switch, currency is set to USD and in your extranet, currency is set to IDR. 

To set the secondary currency, 

1. Go to Basic Settings > Currency & Taxes

2. Turn on Secondary Currency and select IDR (for this example). Enable for both Use in OTA and Show on Invoice settings. 

3. Manually add the exchange rate. (USD to IDR in this example.)


Computation: The rates set in Seasonal Pricing will be converted using the exchange rate you set in the Secondary Currency settings.

Totals and balances will continue to show in your main currency but you can see amounts in your secondary currency in the invoices.
