How to set deafult currency


I am followuing the getting started guide to use Perch Shop with GBP.

When clicking add to cart I am getting the message 'No default currency set' when I believe I have this set to gbp already.

Please may you help?

Step 5 of the Getting Started docs:

Go to the general Perch Settings page. You will see that a section has appeared here for Shop. Check the value of the “Prices are entered as” setting. Usually this will be Tax Exclusive, but change it if you need to. Set the Default and Reporting currencies. Save the settings if you made changes or not.

Thank you
