Even though I have my currency set to CAD my purchases are coming through paypal as USD. Am I missing something because I cannot figure out why.

{exp:channel:entries channel="products" sort="asc" entry_id="21|22|23|24|25|26|27|28"}
{exp:simple_commerce:purchase entry_id="{entry_id}" success="user_main/success" cancel="user_main/index" country_code="CA" currency="CAD"}

       <p><strong>{item_name}</strong> - 
       {if item_type == "purchase"}

< a href="{add_to_cart_url}" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;">Add to Cart</a >


  • Are you send same currency on exp:simple_commerce:purchase tag ? Jan 28, 2013 at 18:16

Is your currency set correctly/added in PayPal? Login to PayPal and go to:

My Account > Profile > My Money > PayPal Balance More Menu > Currencies

  • I was told by the client that it was set correctly. Maybe I need to have a look myself. Jan 28, 2013 at 19:28
  • Double checked myself, made the default currency CAD as well as deleting the USD account that was there. Still not working, once I deleted the USD account now the user cannot even checkout. Jan 30, 2013 at 23:35
