Payment with currency not i hold

Sorry, no way to add non-supported currencies to PayPal account because they are simply not supported. You'll need to use a supported currency in your shop sites. And the currencies you see listed when you click "+ Add a Currency" on the Money page, are the currencies you can receive and hold in your PayPal balance.


These are the supported currencies:


Your primary currency is the currency used for sending and requesting payments.


Here’s how to select a currency for your primary balance:

  1. Click Wallet on the top of the page.
  2. Click on the right side of the currency balance you want to make primary and click Make Primary.

The currency balances you add to your PayPal balance on the Money page are the currencies for receiving and holding.

Kudos & Solved are greatly appreciated. 🙂
