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
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.
