I have a business account with KYC completed, and my primary currency is USD. I integrated PayPal in one of my app, now when I'm trying to make payment through other normal Indian PayPal accounts, It's saying "The seller doesn't accept your currency". 

 

Now all I want to know is how can I fix this issue, is there any workaround for this.

Yes, you cannot accept INR. PayPal does not support INR currency for payments or to hold in PayPal: https://developer.paypal.com/docs/reports/reference/paypal-supported-currencies/

 

No work around.

PayPal doesn’t offer payments domestically within India. Receiving international payments/sales for India based businesses only.
