I have a store, the base currency is USD, but EURO is also available, how can I use EURO to checkout in this store?

Try the IW Paypal Standard Currencies extension (http://www.magentocommerce.com/extension/1221/iw-paypal-standard-currencies) which allows you to set a Transaction Currency, which will be used for the Paypal transactions instead of the base currency.

Create a store view and set its Default display currency to EURO. EURO will appear in the checkout, however, transaction will still process in the base currency.

If you want the transaction to actually occur in EURO, you must create a second website, set Price Scope to “Website”, change Base Currency of new website to EURO.
