Salam and Selamat Sejahtera everyone,

I just wonder, is it possible for us to use MYR as base currency in Magento, and at the same time make PayPal Website Payment Standard option to be function?

I have try around but the PayPal option not appear in checkout unless I change my base currency to US (seem it only appear for those currency that accepted by PayPal only. Please correct me if i’m wrong).

I try install IW PayPal Standard Currencies extensions, but still not solving my problem. The PayPal option still not appear during checkout.

Can someone help me on this...or should i just forget about adding PayPal as my payment solution and change to moneybookers since moneybookers can accept MYR?

Thanks and regards…

Hi,

If you are using Magento 1.3.2.4 and PayPal Website Payments Standard, I would suggest using the following extension instead of IW PayPal Currencies: IW Enhanced PayPal Standard (EPS)

Warmest regards,
Mage@Immersiveworks

Dear Leonardo,

PayPal module in Magento is not developed by PayPal but from Magento’s provider, this is a third party software.

Your shopping cart is sending “currency_code=RON” to PayPal, PayPal doesn’t recognize “RON” value and by default will process the payment in “USD”. We don’t know how Magento developed their PayPal module so we won’t be able to assist you further on this.

Please contact Magento technical support directly in order to check which value they are sending: http://www.magentocommerce.com/support/overview

Kind Regards,
Federica

I have solve this problem for India like this
------------------------------------------------------
Go to app/code/core/Mage/Paypal/Model/Config.php

Change this array:

protected $_supportedCurrencyCodes = array('AUD''CAD''CZK''DKK''EUR''HKD''HUF''ILS''JPY''MXN','NOK''NZD''PLN''GBP''SGD''SEK''CHF''USD''TWD''THB');

To

protected $_supportedCurrencyCodes = array('AUD''CAD''CZK''DKK''EUR''HKD''HUF''ILS''JPY''MXN','NOK''NZD''PLN''GBP''SGD''SEK''CHF''USD''TWD''THB','INR');

Another trick :

Go to app/code/core/Mage/Paypal/Model/Standard.php

Then change this function:

public function canUseForCurrency($currencyCode)
  
{
      
return $this->getConfig()->isCurrencyCodeSupported($currencyCode);
  
}

To

public function canUseForCurrency($currencyCode)
  
{
      
if($currencyCode == 'INR')
      
{
          $currencyCode 
'USD';
      
}
      
return $this->getConfig()->isCurrencyCodeSupported($currencyCode);
  
}
