A suggestion for Multi Currency
Posted 14 November 2002 - 07:10 AM
During button creation, allow the user/customer to check what currencies they accept using check box options. This will create HTML code that will pass the appropriate variable name for each currency chosen.
<input type = "hidden" name = "Sterling" value = "GBP">
This is not the exact code but an example only. This would pass the variable of Sterling to the Payment details screen similar to the currently offered 'custom' variable. So for every currency a customer wants to offer, eg; dollars, euros, sterling, etc., there would be a line of html code inserted into the generated button. This would pass the information as stated above to a pull down menu in the Payment details screen where the customer buying would be prompted to select a currency to pay with. When the currency is selected, the current conversion rate is used to change the default checkout price given to the appropriate currency and amount.
This would allow our developers websites not to be cluttered with a button for each currency and add convenience and speed to customer checkout.

You can get this code from xe.com
This does not automatically convert a dollar amount for you in PayPal's code. You can use a third party cart that would covert for you and process via PayPal.

The licencing terms on XE are pretty restrictive, such that you cannot really calculate automatically the conversion for your customer.
I have my own shopping basket system and it would be useful to calculate, based upon conversion rates that PayPal uses. Do paypal use XE for their own internal conversion?
We get a lot of foreign users (we are UK, 50% of our custom is USA) so a conversion, dynamically displayed would be very useful.
