Starting on January the 1st, 2014, Latvian prime currency will be the euro, and online store owners will need to have the default currency in Euros as well.

Aware of this problem, will release an extension that will store the main currency exchange, preserving the previous price. The extension should be ready by Dec 30.

It should be noted that previously developed OpenCart Dual Currency Display extension supports the default currency change, but will not convert the prices into the new currency.
