Setting a Currency for Your Corsizio Account
As a Corsizio user, you can create one or more accounts under your user login. Each account can only be set to one currency. This means that every event within that account will have the same currency. This also means that anyone in the world can register and pay for one of your events, but they cannot choose to use their own currency if they do not wish to pay in the currency set for the event. Therefore, there would be a conversion on the customer's side and the event organizer receives the funds in the currency they set for their account.
To set a currency for your account, go to your account Settings, and then select Payment Settings from the left side menu. Here you are given the option to set the currency for this account, as well as configure any other payment information.
Multiple Currency Options for Events
If you offer events in different countries and need to offer event registrations with the country's associated currency, you need to create multiple accounts (within the same Corsizio login), each representing a specific currency. This allows you to collect payment from your attendees in each different country or for each group of events in that specific currency.
If you offer events in Canada and Germany, you would set up two accounts within your Corsizio user login: one for Canadian events in Canadian dollars and the other for German events in euros.
To create a new account, visit your account navigation in the top right-hand corner and select "Create Another New Account." Then, configure this account with the different currency of your choice.
If, on the other hand, you would like to have the same event provide your attendees with a choice of different currencies to pay in, this is not possible as part of the same account, as each account can only be associated with one currency. You can, however, still make this work using multiple accounts, as shared above, by creating the same event in multiple accounts, and then assigning each version of it a different currency. You would then feature each currency's event link on your own website or send the appropriate currency event link to your audience. However, please note that this will not combine all of the attendee and financial data for this single event together, as you cannot manage a single event between multiple accounts.
Note that your Stripe account will do a currency conversion to the funds paid if they differ from your bank account's currency. For more information read their help doc about Currency conversions.
Currencies for Your Payouts
Depending on the country where you are based, you can receive payouts to associated bank accounts in different currencies. For example, if you are in Canada, you can accept funds in both CAD and USD. Most accounts based in Europe can accept the following 6 currencies: EUR, GBP, USD, CHF, DKK, NOK, SEK.
