PayPal (new API) multiple currencies problem
« on: May 02, 2011, 13:58:45 pm »

I've noticed that when using PayPal (we are using the new API) as the payment method, the shops default currency is passed to PayPal. This in itself wouldn't be that bad. However, no currency conversion is done. Only the currency is changed, thus the amount is completely wrong. For example if the price is 100 USD and the default shops currency is EUR the amount shown in PayPal is 100 EUR.

I noticed there are quite a few posts about this issue, but most of them did not have any solutions or the solutions seemed to apply to the "old" PayPal API. Does anyone know how to fix this? Is there a newer version with this issue fixed? Or should I use different payment module for PayPal? I would really appreciate any help on this matter as this is rather crucial.

Cheers  :)
