    Hi Paulo

    Most people in SA don’t use Paypal and as such Payfast is a great option. I understand the development issue on your side. and as such is there something I have perhaps not thought of? The other payment gateways are they accessible to SA residents?

    I have not looked into it deeply as I thought the conversion would be simple. (Static currency rate Updated by the user?) so It simply takes the USD amount and multiplies by a multiplier set by the site admin.

    Is it possible to create something like that? It would be similar to how prestashop runs its multi curencies

    I would really appreciate your thoughts.

    Regards

    Sieko

    Hi,

    I’m sorry, but we consider this a customization.

    We never got any similar request, probably because other South Africans using the plugin are charging in Rand and are not trying to charge in USD when the payment gateway doesn’t accept it.

    You’ll need to hire a developer to help you with this specific case, at the moment there is nothing we can do to assist you as part of support.

    Thank you

    p.s. you can use Paypal for USD. It is available in South Africa.

    Hi Paulo

    Its not about using paypal for usd. its about creating a global directory and having that directory priced in a global currency. i.e USD

    If i price it in rands it is just a south african directory. Not very appealing to a global audience who trade in Euro / USD / Yen etc…

    So our South African friends purchase online and pay in rands. So I simply need the plugin to literally just make sure that it sends the USD price set by me for membership and convert that into a rand value. As the rand is about 13 : 1

    This is not about South Africans paying in rands or dollars – this is about payfast processing a payment that is equivalent in rands to the price that was set in USD on the site by me.

    Not sure if that clarifies. maybe we can skype ? or mail to discuss further. in my mind it should be fairly simple thing to resolve as its about adding a factor that allows for a conversion.

    Regards

    Hi Sieko,

    it was clear from the start. We still consider this a customization that goes beyond support.

    We don’t provide similar customization when only one user is asking for them.

    You’ll need to hire a developer to help you with this specific case, at the moment there is nothing we can do to assist you as part of support.

    Thank you
