Using display currency for PayPal checkout instead of base currency

Using display currency for PayPal checkout instead of base currency

Hi everyone!

 

Base and display currency for my online store (built with Magento 1.9.2.4) is USD at the moment and I use PayPal for accepting payments. I would like to change the base currency to EUR for convenience of my pricing policy but still display prices in USD in frontend and accept payments via PayPal checkout in USD. How can I do it with my current Magento setup?

 

Thank you for your help!

Re: Using display currency for PayPal checkout instead of base currency

Hi, payment methods by default are always in the base currency of the store. There are some payment integrations that allow you to configure the payment currency (like ebizmart's sagepay extension), but the default PayPal integration does not allow you to do this.

I suppose this extension will do exactly what I need?

Oh yeah, that looks like it'd be worth a go.
