The instructions below show you how to create a PayPal payment button in the currency of your choice for any of the following website payment solutions:

Creating a New Payment Button

To create a new payment button in your desired currency, select the currency from the 'Currencies' drop-down menu in the Button Factory.

Choose your currency in the Button Factory

For an example of a non-US Dollar payment button, see the 'Sample Code' section below.

Converting an Existing Payment Button

If you already have payment buttons on your website, you can convert the buttons to a different currency by adding one line of HTML code. (Make sure you also convert the item amount when you convert your buttons to another currency.) For example, if you wish to accept payment in Euros, specify the currency_code in your payment button as follows:

<input type="hidden" name="currency_code" value="EUR">

The value you specify for the currency_code should be one of the following available currencies:

Australian Dollar (A $)AUD
Canadian Dollar (C $)CAD
Euro (€)EUR
British Pound (£)GBP
Japanese Yen (¥)JPY
US Dollar ($)USD
New Zealand Dollar ($)NZD

If the currency_code is omitted, the default currency will be US Dollars.

Sample Code

Here's what the payment button code looks like for an item priced in Pounds Sterling:

<input type="hidden" name="cmd" value="_xclick">
<input type="hidden" name="business" value="" >
<input type="hidden" name="item_name" value="Union Jack Flag">
