Currency

Chargify supports multiple currencies per site. Currency configuration is done on a site-by-site basis. You may select the primary currency to use when you create a new site.

If you have only defined a single currency, you may change the currency when you edit a site if the site has no revenue. If you want to define additional currencies, you can do so by going to Settings > Multi-Currency (Multi-Currency Docs). Note that if you define additional currencies, you will not be able to edit your site’s primary currency anymore.

The primary currency is used in price displays found in the Web UI. It is also the default currency that is used when creating new subscriptions if a currency hasn’t been provided. Currency is now stored on the subscription so gateways will see the subscription’s currency in transactions that we submit to your gateway. Note that this can be different than the settlement currency of your Merchant Account.

If you're wanting configure your Chargify site for a currency that is not currently on this list, yet supported by your gateway, please contact us. We will be more than happy to discuss the potential of adding additional currencies that our merchants require. Please be aware a request of this nature will take time to consider. A request does not guarantee that the currency can be immediately supported.

Zero-Decimal Currencies

Chargify currently supports the Japanese Yen (JPY) which is a zero-decimal currency. To use JPY you must configure the currency for your site prior to creating any products. Once the currency is configured, when creating a product, simply enter the number of yen you wish to charge, for example 1575 yen. When creating products via the API, although the attribute is called price_in_cents you should think of “cents” as “the smallest division of the currency” and still submit 1575 for the price.
