First of all What options should I purchase when buying a site on iPage.com? Thanks in advance for any response. Another question on my mind: Hi All,.

I am hoping that someone here can help. I am assisting a client with their oscommerce store..

Their store default and only currency is Pound Sterling. All of the values are coming up as pounds, but when the amounts are transferred into Paypal, they are the same. But this is wrong as they then get converted and the amount paid in pounds is considerable less..

Here is a quote from someone I had check it since they have a default of Pounds in their paypal account..

"I put through an order for 2.50 plus 2.00 postage a total of 4.50. It transferred me to PayPal but still came up with a default currency of USD saying the cost was $4.50 not 4.50 but I decided to go through with the whole transaction to see what would happen..

As you go through it then converts the $4.50 into sterling so we only receive 2.38 instead of 4.50!.".

This is the code from paypal.php:.

$process_button_string = tep_draw_hidden_field('cmd', '_xclick') ..

Tep_draw_hidden_field('business', MODULE_PAYMENT_PAYPAL_ID) ..

Tep_draw_hidden_field('item_name', STORE_NAME) ..

Tep_draw_hidden_field('amount', number_format(($order->info['total'] - $order->info['shipping_cost']). $currencies->currencies['GPB']['value'], 2)) ..

Tep_draw_hidden_field('shipping', number_format($order->info['shipping_cost']. $currencies->get_value('GPB'), 2)) ..

Tep_draw_hidden_field('return', tep_href_link(FILENAME_CHECKOUT_PROCESS, '', 'SSL')) ..

Tep_draw_hidden_field('cancel_return', tep_href_link(FILENAME_CHECKOUT_PAYMENT, '', 'SSL'));.

Any suggestions on how to fix this??..

Hmm... I need to find out myself. I don't know what is the right answer. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I discover an useful answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could answer your iPage question..

Boy do I feel dumb!!!.

That is why I need someone else peeking on occasion.......

Comment #2

Actually it is on two lines:.

Tep_draw_hidden_field('amount', number_format(($order->info['total'] - $order->info['shipping_cost']). $currencies->currencies['GPB']['value'], 2)) ..

Tep_draw_hidden_field('shipping', number_format($order->info['shipping_cost']. $currencies->get_value('GPB'), 2)) ..

I know the feeling though...

Comment #3

Although the GBP is the way it is supposed to be, it still seems to not convert properly when it gets to the paypal form..

I just did a test order and the total in the store was for:.

Sub-Total: 26.98.

Best Way: 3.50.

Total: 30.48.

Balance to pay 30.48.

But when I click continue it tells me that I owe $30.48 US. Now my paypal is set up to default as a US, but I have been charged in pound before and it has converted properly on other times..

So....it still doesn't work...

Comment #4

I did change both of them....so it doesn't seem to be the problem..

Thanks......

Comment #5

OK, here is more information..

The store is ONLY set up in GBP with no other currency available. However, if consistently says $'s not pounds on the form to Paypal....

Anyone have any ideas what to do???.

Please I am desperate and can't figure out how to fix this..

Try:.

Tep_draw_hidden_field('currency_code', $my_currency).

Where $my_currency is that the right currency code to use, really osC should be handling this for you rather than being hard coded, but I don't have time to look more thoroughly. Also checkout the PayPal Shopping Cart Manual if needed...

Comment #7

Mine work okay but I have GBP set as my default currency in my Paypal account. ??..

Comment #8

Hi.

How did you get on with resolving this as I have exactly the same problem?.

Regards.

Are you using an older version of oscommerce? I was. A friend who knows php took a look at if for me and he fixed the code since I had an old paypal mod..

GPB rather than GBP would that make a difference ? .
