Store converted currency value in a separate variable? OR Send different currency to different vendors?

Rookie Contributor
Hello everyone, I have a website in Poland that uses PLN currency. However we agreed to pass the values to Facebook in EUR. Thus on my confirmation page I would need to pass the values to some vendors in EUR (facebook) and to some other in PLN (AdForm). I have looked up the currency mapping and i am not sure how to use it. If I limit the scope to some tags, will the converted value be passed only to that particular vendor (in other word will Facebook receive in EUR and AdForm in PLN?) Thanks very much

Store converted currency value in a separate variable? OR Send different currency to different vendors?

Employee Emeritus
Philippe, I would recommend using a different variable to store the new currency in and then mapping that variable to the specific tags that should use the updated currency. For Example, let's assume you want to convert the "order_subtotal" variable from PLN to EUR to pass to Facebook. Create a Set Data Values extension like so: Create a new data source called order_subtotal_eur Set order_subtotal_eur To: Variable -> order_subtotal This is going to create a copy of the order_subtotal variable that you can use to convert into EUR. Add the Currency Converter Tag and Extension. Set up the Currency Converter Extension as shown in the screen shot. This is using the Facebook Custom Audiences Tag as an example and assuming you only want to convert this value on the Confirmation / Thank You Page. Then you can map "order_subtotal_eur" to the conversion value for the facebook tag and any other tag you need to send the value in EUR. Hope this help.
