Paypal only supports the currencies listed here:
https://www.paypal.com/us/cgi-bin/websc ... wa-outside

As you can see INR is not a supported currency. For any non-supported currency, I have the default to USD. You can change it to default to another currency, but it needs to be one of the supported ones

Thanks for your reply.

I have send email to PayPal regarding my issue and i get following reply -

Hello Vinay,

You decide the currency value you're passing to us with the "currency_code" value you are posting to us. If your transactions are passing as USD you will need to change your "currency_code" value to INR.

If you're using a third party shopping cart service you will need to use their system to update the currency. If you're using buttons created from your PayPal account, you had the option to choose the currency when creating the button. You can modify an existing button to change the currency or you can create new ones with the proper currency value.

Thank you for choosing PayPal, I wish you the best with your future transactions.

if PayPal not supporting Indian currency INR then why there support team suggesting me to change passing currency_code with INR?

Well they may have added more currencies. I was only going by what they showed on their own site. Paypal is a terrible company so it's no surprise. This list was updated as of May 2010:
https://www.x.com/docs/DOC-2137
INR is NOT listed.

But try adding INR to the supported currency list and see if it works:

1. EDIT: catalog/controller/payment/pp_standard.php

2. FIND:

Code: Select all

$currencies = array('AUD','CAD','EUR','GBP','JPY','USD','NZD','CHF','HKD','SGD','SEK','DKK','PLN','NOK','HUF','CZK','ILS','MXN','MYR','BRL','PHP','PLN','TWD','THB'); 
3. REPLACE WITH:

Code: Select all

$currencies = array('AUD','CAD','EUR','GBP','JPY','USD','NZD','CHF','HKD','SGD','SEK','DKK','PLN','NOK','HUF','CZK','ILS','MXN','MYR','BRL','PHP','PLN','TWD','THB','INR'); 
If not, email the paypal guy back and tell him he's a moron
