Right now it takes US dollars just fine, but I don't have a CDN credit card to test this with ;)
Does anyone have any experience with this or can confirm if this is possible? Paypal's website and Google have produced nothing helpful to confirm or deny this capability.
I tried calling them and the first time I asked if I could take "international currencies" ... they put me on hold for a while and when they came back they said it wasn't possible.
Thinking that I might have got the wrong person or just asked the wrong question I called and asked again but with specifics, basically asked "can I accept canadian credit cards" and they said yes.
So there you have it. Case closed.
The Express Checkout API accepts currencies in AUD, USD, CAD, EUR, GBP, and JPY. This API is the more traditional "transfer to PayPal to complete this purchase" payment method.
Thank you sir for clearing that up. I guess I shouldn't have trusted the paypal website payments pro support when they contradicted each other.
The documentation you told me to Google up also confirms what you said, right on the top of page 15, first page of Chapter one :).
I am supposing however that if a credit card were to automatically convert it's native currency to USD at the time of transaction that things would work, assuming that the credit card being used has that feature.
In any case this is important to consider if you are a merchant who wants to do international business using website payments pro as a payment gateway.
Thanks for your help here!
