currency is the financial unit for the amount.

The value of currency field is the ISO 3 letter abbreviation of the currency the customer used when purchasing the product or service. Common examples are shown below, however, the full list is available on the ISO Standards website.
  • Pound sterling = GBP 
  • United States Dollar = USD 
  • European Union Euro = EUR 

An error is produced during the uploading of the sales file if an invalid abbreviation is used.

Although optional, to ensure the correct currency is always used, we recommend that currency is defined for each order where an amount is defined. Where an order line has an amount defined without a currency, Feefo will assign the ISO Standard abbreviation for the international currency of the merchant's business 'country' as defined in the Feefo Adminstration Portal under Settings > Business Details > Business Address > Country. For example, if the 'Country' of the business address is France and currency isn't supplied in the sales files, all amounts will default to EUR.
