Paypal has just started accepting payments and receipts in Australian dollars.

 

For information and hoping OsC team look to update their paypal contributions to include this. Also any other contributions that might be affected.

 

Thanks for your time and efforts

Geoff,

 

Where did you get that info from? Their web site says they accept 5 currencies, and AUD is not one of them.

 

here is the link

and here is the wording

 

***PayPal.com accepts payments in Australian dollars ***

Date: 04/01/05 Time: 08:10:31 PM EST

 

 

PayPal today announced that it accepts payments in Australian dollars on PayPal.com. Australian users can now send and receive payments in the local currency, eliminating the need to convert currency and pay costly exchange fees for purchases or sales.

PayPal enables any individual or business with an email address to securely, easily and quickly send and receive payments online. It is free to open an account and send money using PayPal, with modest fees applying to Premier and Business accounts, or those accounts that accept credit card payments.

 

Australian PayPal merchants who receive money from within Australia will pay introductory fees as low as 1.4% to 2.4% plus $0.40 per transaction, depending on monthly payment volume.

 

To send a payment in Australian dollars, simply go to the Send Money tab after logging into PayPal and select "Australian Dollars" as your preferred currency, or click on the PayPal logo included in many sellers? eBay.com.au listings. To receive a payment, existing PayPal members will have to manually accept their first Australian Dollar payment in order to open a new currency balance; future AUD payments will automatically be credited to their account.

 

New Australian PayPal members will be defaulted to Australian dollars as their primary currency and so will automatically be able to receive Australian dollar payments. All members can send and receive money in any of PayPal?s six supported currencies.

 

We hope you enjoy this enhancement to the PayPal service!

 

 

Regards,

The eBay Team

 

far better for Australians........

I second that.

 

Also when updating PAYPAL Module - someone needs to integrate PAYPAL subscription and recurring billing into the oscommerce database.

 

Cheers,

The standard Paypal payment module seems to work fine as far as I can see with AUD, just by selecting "Selected Currency" in the admin->payment modules->paypal options. I'm assuming that this is because we have our store's default currency set to $AUD. Either way, Paypal is registering the correct number of $ and says that it's AUD. Until AUD is integrated into the paypal module, this could be wortth giving a try if you're waiting.


"Grrrr! It's time this installation tasted Boomstick..."

Remember to set your options over at Paypal to open Australian dollars for your account.
