Website Payments


Now you can accept payments on your website in any of the currencies supported by PayPal through the Multiple Currencies feature.

The instructions below will 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-U.S. 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:

Japanese Yen (¥)JPY
