But in some cases, you may be forced to use a different currency locally. you will proceed in three steps to achieve this: Acess NexoPOS settings, change curreny, and check the changes made.

  • The ISO currency format are three-letter alphabetic codes that represent the various currencies used throughout the world.
  • The currency position : Here you can simply define the position between the amount and the currency symbol.
