Do you think about Web sites like airbnb which **displays** but does not send a value.


# AIRBNB
========

Create a search and at the bottom right corner, you may select a different currency for displaying the prices.
https://www.airbnb.com/s/paris?checkin=07%2F13%2F2015&checkout=07%2F20%2F2015&guests=2


<select class="currency-selector">
      <option value="AED">AED</option>
      <option value="ARS">ARS</option>
…
      <option value="JPY" selected="">JPY</option>
…   
</select>

which in return does

    changeCurrency: function (g, h) {
      e.post('/users/change_currency', {
        new_currency: g
      }, h)

The change rate is done server-side.




# TripAdvisor
=============

<div id="GLOBAL_CURRENCY_PICKER">
  <ul class="currency_list">
    <li class="global_currency_item" 
        onclick="ta.util.currency.setCurrencyAndReload('JPY', '')">
      <span class="global_currency_picker_item_code">JPY</span>
      <span>円</span>
    </li>

    …

  </ul>
</div>

tied to which set a cookie. Conversion done on the server side.

ta.util.currency.setCurrencyAndReload = function(a, b) {
    var c = "SetCurrency";
    Cookie.write(c, a, {
        time: 15
    });
    b = b ? b + "|" : "";
    ta.trackEventOnPage("CurrencyPicker", "Select", b + a);
    location.reload(true)
};
