Currency FAQ

How do I create a Campaign and Line Item with a different currency than the default in Buzz?

Multiple currencies are supported for reporting and budgeting within Beeswax. A currency can be set when you create a campaign. However, once a campaign is created, the currency cannot be changed.

Line Items within that campaign will inherit the currency that is set at the Campaign level, and all line items within a campaign must be the same currency.

How do I see currencies in reports?

If you are using multiple currencies in Beeswax, it is important to ensure you pull the ‘currency’ field in reporting. The `spend` and all financial fields in reporting (CPM, Gross Margin, etc) will always be in the campaign's currency.

All currency rates are linked to the rate at the time of the transaction, not the current rate when the report was pulled.
