A quick simple code to convert Magento Price from Current Currency to Base Currency.

If in some case you want to convert the price to base corrency in Magento then there is a very simple function available ‘currencyConvert()’ but this function is NOT WORKING in magento community 1.7 version.

$from 		= 'USD';
$to 		= 'NPR';
$price 		= 10;
$newPrice 	= Mage::helper('directory')->currencyConvert($price, $from, $to);
?>

magento convert price in base currency
I tried another way to solve this. You can use the below working code to get the price in base currency.

<?php
//	Convert price to base currency from current currency
$totals 	= 	Mage::getSingleton('checkout/cart')->getQuote()->getTotals();
$subtotal 	= 	$totals["subtotal"]->getValue();
// Base Currency
$baseCurrencyCode 		= 	Mage::app()->getStore()->getBaseCurrencyCode();
// Current Currency
$currentCurrencyCode 	= 	Mage::app()->getStore()->getCurrentCurrencyCode();
if( $baseCurrencyCode != $currentCurrencyCode ){
	// Allowed currencies
	$allowedCurrencies 	= 	Mage::getModel('directory/currency')->getConfigAllowCurrencies();
	$rates 				= 	Mage::getModel('directory/currency')->getCurrencyRates($baseCurrencyCode, array_values($allowedCurrencies));
	$convertedSubtotal	=	$subtotal / $rates[$currentCurrencyCode];	
}else{
	$convertedSubtotal	=	$subtotal;
}
?>
