Invalid microdata for prices. My website auto selects currency

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

My website uses the GeoIP to auto select the currency. When the page gets crawled then it's showing the prices in the wrong currency and products are getting disapproved.

Are there any suggestions on simple solution to this?

all landing-pages must show the exact same content --
regardless of any user-specific information, whatsoever,
including ip-address, geo-location, user-agent, cookies,
etc., or is otherwise a policy violation and grounds for
a disapproval or suspension, at any time.

 

two common solutions include simply preselecting any (price and currency)
details by using a link url-parameter with a server-side application; e.g.
http://www.example.com/products/wagon.html?currency=usd&color=red
http://www.example.com/products/wagon.html?currency=gbp&color=red

note such changes should never involve client-side code such as javacript.

 

or, by using separate links per target-country; e.g.
http://www.example.com/us/products/wagon.html?color=red
http://www.example.com/gb/products/wagon.html?color=red

 

in any case, simply be certain that landing-pages show the
exact same information, regardless of any external details.
