'CAD',
'EUR',
'GBP',
'JPY',
'USD',
'NZD',
'CHF',
'HKD',
'SGD',

You are sure its enabled? Its really as simple as enabling it and being sure the current selected currency is in the list of supported currencies.

You are likely using a non-supported currency. In 1.5.2 it was changed to hide paypal as an option if the current currency was not on the support paypal list. But it seems many stores in these countries didn't mind having it autoconvert to USD for them. So I will add the option to allow showing the paypal option even if the currency isn't supported for the next version.

The fix for now is here:

I followed the new direction. Paypal now is showing on the Payment option. However the auto conversion is not working. My default currency is INR or Indian Rupee. When the pages go to the checkout page and the Paypal site is opened, the amount in INR simply display the same figure in $. For ex. 5000 INR, should be something like $90 when it goes for Paypal payment, but instead showing $5000, not auto converting.
Is there a way to solve this.
The site I am building is www.touchstonemedia.com/newstore

All help is seriously needed.

Hi Isvaradas,

I had the same issue.

To solve it I've been using Qphoria's suggestion to change catalog/model/payment/pp_standard.php as per his instructions.
This enables the PayPal checkout option.

However, I do not use the modification for catalog/controller/payment/pp_standard.php.
I just overwrite the complete file with the one from version 1.5.1.3.

With this all works fine for me.
I'm using South African ZAR and the exchange rate is calculated correctly in the PayPal checkout.

Thanks. That really helps. Now the Paypal option is working properly by overwriting with the 1.5.1.3 version. I wonder why the Opencart team removed that from the new update. Thats definitely backward decision. They need to restore for the next upgrade.

Hello,

I am having the same issue that is described, except I am using USD and no other currencies. The currency is enabled and Paypal is enabled. The currency is selected in the store. I really cannot figure it out. I don't think I need the vqmod as I am using USD. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Jason

Edit:I am moving this to it's own thread as it seems to be a slightly different issue.
