PayPal is a globally recognized and fully supported payment gateway on Magento eCommerce store. Setting up the PayPal gateway is relatively easy following the standard documentation. However, configuring it for multiple currencies is not.

Base Currency

Magento is setup with your base currency which handles all of your costs. Your Store View pricing can be set to support multi-currency. When making purchases your base currency will be transferred to PayPal. Optional modules exist to allow you to change the currency provided to PayPal (this is not detailed in this document). To support this option, Magento allows you setup the currencies that are allowed to be displayed in your store.
