Hey guys,
I was wondering what everyone here's opinions are on the default price for e-com stores. More specifically, I was wondering if it would be more beneficial to make the prices on my store in usd even though I live in Canada. I'm wondering if this would increase sales in any store. Of course there would always be an option to change the currency once you're on the store but if for example my item is being sold for $29.99 CAD and someone in the United States changes the currency type to USD, then it would be an awkward number. (For example right now it would be 22.41$) To any Americans here or people selling online, would you say that having my price in Canadian dollars would be a turn off for potential American buyers if they're my main target?

If you're selling worldwide i'd change it to USD, most people know their own currency in relation to the USD pretty well.
Also If you're using wordpress or shopify you can try installing an automatic currency switcher plugin.

Yes I am using shopify and I do have a currency switcher however I will look into an automatic one.
