Set your store currency

One final thing to check is that your Shopify store currency matches that of your Viva Wallet account. For instance, if your Viva Wallet account was set up in the UK, the Viva Wallet account will be in GBP, so you must set the Shopify currency to the same, i.e. GBP in this example. Please see below for instructions on how to change your store currency.

To set your store currency, you should follow the below steps.

  1. Click on Settings in the bottom-left corner of your Shopify home page:
