I have changed all instances of dollar sign $ for uk gbp . The problem is it sends the price in usd to paypal when I want gbp for uk.

I found this line in onscreen event PayPal_Submit
'info=info & "<input type=""hidden"" name=""currency_code"" value=""" & dataInfo("Currency") & """>"

Do I need to change this or is the setting some where else?
Thanks

Uncomment this line and use GBP as a currency:

info=info & "<input type=""hidden"" name=""currency_code"" value=""GBP"">"


Events page: LoginPage->PayPal_Submit

I've been having these problems too. I changed the PayPal_Submit code to:

$info.="<input type=\"hidden\" name=\"currency_code\" value=\"GBP\">";


This works for the actual payment, but the initial screen still comes up in dollars. I've been looking at a line in the PayPal Event, tried changing it as follows:

$s=format_currency($data["Price"],"GBP") . " " . $data["Label"];


But still no luck. Any ideas?

regards

for all the people on as steep a learning curve as me as me,

I changed the currency symbol using the main regional settings on the computer

the currency code line in the paypal_submit page that admin suggests to uncomment, is not there in the version I downloaded (Nov 2008) and has to be typed in, but it does the job once typed in

cheers,

Steve
