Thousands Separator: By default, a comma is the thousands separator. It is also referred for payment process.
Value: This option is used to set the default currency.
This option is used to set the default currency. If the value is set be 1.000000 for a particular currency, it will serve as the default currency. All other currencies will be in relation with this.
Ex: if US $ is been set to 1, it will be the default currency and the corresponding value will be 0.81 for Euro. In this way J2Store will calculate the prices for products based on currency transitions.
