I always use Yahoo finance as the source for my conversion rate but somehow it resets to custom exchange rate. Why does this happen? Is this a bug?
I hope not! Did you save your settings for sure?
Maybe it was a random thing. It hasnt occurred in 5 days now. Can you please tell me what would be the COMMAND i need to add to the cron jobs in my cpanel for the conversion rate to update automatically
I have the following scenario:
I use a plugin to display prices in USD based on geo ip. Our back end uses South African Rands though, and upon checkout we have to display rands. Which is a problem for our paypal gateway as the ZAR is not a supported currency.
So your plugin will solve this, BUT – we do not want to convert. We want it to use the USD rate we displayed when the customer was purchasing. It would have displayed USD25 – which is what we want to be on the paypal payment exactly. Is this possible?
If you make sure, that the exchange rates are similar, and that there are no code collisions whatsoever with the other plugin, it might work out.
Hi – the issue is that the USD price we display is not worked out with an exchange rate, but are rates manually set by us based on market conditions. In other words, it needs to just take that rate, and not convert at all.
It depends, if the other plugin that you use to make the pricing based on GEO IP and your USD price settings, and only use my plugin on prices in ZAR, then you need to find a way to disable the conversion for this particular setting. However, this needs custom coding as far as I can tell. If you know what you are doing you are free to buy the plugin and customize it according to your needs.
Hi – no I wouldn’t have a clue what to do so customizing it is out of the question for me. I have actually already purchased it and will use it without the functionality I am looking for in the interim as I need a paypal solution sort of immediately. Once things have been bedded down I may review it and ask for customization to be done possibly.
Installed this and working great. 2 things though
1. the order confirmation that goes out to the customer by email has the conversion rate at the bottom. However, the pricing shown on it is our local currency, but prefixed with $. The amount is correct (in local currency) but it should have ZAR there, not $.
2. The order processing doesn’t proceed automatically – reason given: Validation error: PayPal currencies do not match (code USD). Order status changed from Pending Payment to On Hold.
1. I need the sample order email to see exactly what you meant. (via PM)
2. There are checkboxes on the backend to enforce auto processing.
Though this order note will remain, because it is what it is.(The order currency is still ZAR but it has been paid in USD thus the currencies do not match. However this will keep your order statistics correct in ZAR)
Hi – not sure how to do a pm that can contain the email. Do you have a mail address I can forward it to?
I guess you visit my profile, and there you should have the option.
I did visit your profile, there is an “email author” form, but I cannot attach anything there or forward the mail as an example, so i really am not sure how to get it to you?
Just send me a request and I will answer with my email, OK?
I bought this but its not quite what i need. I really need the currency to be selectable by the customer or for it to choose it off there delivery address or location.
I have an Austrian company so the locals want to pay in AUD most of the other customers are from united states and would like the price to be in usd mostly because they can only use paypal credit when the price is in usd.
Im still happy with it as its very good for the price but i would be happy to pay 4 times the price for it if it ould offer even 2 currency options for payment as discused above.or is there a work around i could use to do this ?
I can only assume, that your shop currency is AUD, right? So without currency conversion PayPal would already work, since AUD is a valid PayPal currency. If for whatever reason you want your customer to pay with USD it should work as well, and their USD account will be charged with AUD + conversion fees.
If you, on the other hand, allow them to pay with USD into your PayPal AUD account, you’ll be the one to pay the conversion fees (afaik), and risk also loss due to currency conversion from the shop total being AUD converted to USD. If you want that, just enable the plugin for customers out of Australia.
There are code snippets around, that do a geo IP lookup. With that you can switch the Plugin on or off, depending on the origin of your visitors.(of course this needs some code editing…)
After all, you need something that can tell your WordPress where the vistors are located.
Does that sound reasonable?
yes i am after the second option, I’m happy to lose a bit on the sale but make it easy for the customer. I think the multi site set up would be alot of hastle when it comes to other plugins i use like the dhl shipping and xero.
Do you have a link for the code i would need to change ?
Also if you could supply the altered code im happy to pay.
I’m checking what I can do and keep you posted.
Are there any legal restrictions in your country for looking up users IP address?
If so you are basically out of luck with the suggested approach.
Yes its legal here
This plugin just for WooCommerce or can use it with any plugin or special themes accept payments?
I’m using this theme and have payment system using PayPal and my currency SAR
It is meant to be used with WooCommerce. There should be no collision with any theme. However there are some plugins that do not match well.
I’m using AED currency, the plugin not converting the shipping amount
it take the full amount in AED make it usd
shipping is : 15 AED
in PayPal shipping total is : 15$
Have you set everything up as needed? I doubt it.
do you have documentation ?
You may refer to https://codecanyon.net/item/paypal-currency-converter-pro-for-woocommerce/6343249 and also hover over the ?-Icons in the Backend to have more information about a specific setting. In your Case, please check that you have selected a valid exchange rate provider and accepted the suggested conversion rate.
Before buying, I noticed that the documentation are not reachable?
The domain name has expired?
It’s true the site has expired. Nevertheless the documentation given on the Item Details page (https://codecanyon.net/item/paypal-currency-converter-pro-for-woocommerce/6343249) and the tooltips on every element off the plugin should be more than enough. Besides, you are free to search the forum or ask anything.
I want to purchase this plugin, but first I need to know if this PAYPAL CURRENCY CONVERTER PRO FOR WOOCOMMERCE plugin converts the shipping costs from dominican pesos to dollars.
Thxs in adv.
This plugin is supposed to convert the shopping total including everything.
Will it work with PayPal Express checkout (by Woocommerce) plugin ?
No, but there are alterantive express checkout plugins that’ll do. See Item Details page: https://codecanyon.net/item/paypal-currency-converter-pro-for-woocommerce/6343249
