Posted on
currency not supported

“Currency not supported” is a common error that you can experience in some shopping cart solutions when trying to implement PayPal as a payment gateway. In this short article, we’re going to show you why this error happens and how PayForm can help you with this issue.

Why does “currency not supported” happen?

While currently, PayPal is available in more than 200 countries, it only supports a handful of currencies for integration. The list of currencies supported by PayPal as of March 2020 are the following:

  • Australian dollar (AUD)
  • Brazilian real (BRL)
  • Canadian dollar (CAD)
  • Czech koruna (CZK)
  • Danish krone (DKK)
  • Euro (EUR)
  • Hong Kong dollar (HKD)
  • Hungarian forint (HUF)
  • Indian rupee (INR)
  • Israeli new shekel (ILS)
  • Japanese yen (JPY)
  • Malaysian ringgit (MYR)
  • Mexican peso (MXN)
  • New Taiwan dollar (TWD)
  • New Zealand dollar (NZD)
  • Norwegian krone (NOK)
  • Philippine peso (PHP)
  • Polish złoty (PLN)
  • Pound sterling (GBP)
  • Russian ruble (RUB)
  • Singapore dollar (SGD)
  • Swedish krona (SEK)
  • Swiss franc (CHF)
  • Thai baht (THB)
  • United States dollar (USD)

What does this mean? That if your currency is not on this list, you are out of luck. Either way, there’s a better solution, and that is, using PayForm to accepting your payments instead of a shopping cart solution.
