Hi there,

I have bank accounts in both Pound Stirling (£) and Euro (€). At the moment I can't include my Pound Stirling account because as there is no exchange rate in reporting the figures would be wrong.

Are there any plans to support multiple currencies?

Hi everyone,

Wow! Since this thread has been quiet for the last few years (until this weekend), we didn’t realize that we need to communicate more proactively. That’s clear to us now given the discussion this weekend, so thanks for weighing in, everyone.

Obviously, we have not built support for multiple currencies, and I want to be clear that we do not plan to do so. I understand that for all of you who live in a multiple currency environment, it’s simply part of your financial reality and therefore a must-have feature, so regrettably, Goodbudget may not be the right solution for you. I understand that means we may miss out on an opportunity to serve a segment of people like you who use multiple currencies. And it could be argued that more multiple currency users haven’t tried Goodbudget because we don’t offer the feature. But we’re a small team, and we have to prioritize our work.

If you’re interested to see what we have been working on in the last couple years, you can read about our efforts in our changelog. I think you’ll see a theme of us working on projects that affect the majority of our users -- things like Reports on the mobile phones. We’ve also built some of the features requested on other popular forum threads, like Goal Envelopes. And you can see what we're planning to work on in our roadmap.

For those of you who do choose to stick with Goodbudget and find the workaround of using multiple households acceptable, drop us a line via email at support@goodbudget.com. We’re happy to comp a second Plus household to our loyal subscribers who’ve already signed up for one Plus household.

Take care,

Chi-En
