The user now can change the currencies from the Currency Switcher widget.
Please do note that the bidding field value will always remain in the primary currency and it won't change these values depending on the currency. Let briefly understand this with an example:
Suppose admin adds an auction product with the following details:
Opening Price = $100.
Increment Price = $50.
Primary currency = US Dollars.
Customer A comes and sees that the opening price is $100. He places $100. Customer B comes and he wants to place a bid in Euros. He switched the currency. He will see all currency values on the page in Euros except the "bid value" field because bidding logic depends on the current bid price and increment price and that cannot change on the fly as it is near impossible to do that. So, it will display a message that "Enter bid in US Dollars" and once Customer B enters it in USD, then those values will be displayed in Euros. And thus this is how we can achieve compatibility.
