    The currency I want to use - South African Rand (ZAR) - is not listed in the Currency Code dropdown in Payment Settings.

    Where can I add it?

    I found the currency-code list in wpbdp-settings.class.php - But I see why it's unlisted in the dropdown: ZAR is not a PayPal supported currency.

    Yes, PayPal doesn't support ZAR so we don't have it in the list of official currencies. If you tried to pay for a listing, PayPal would reject it, so we can't have it in the list. You can hack the plugin as you suggest above, but keep in mind that PayPal will still not accept it as a payment currency.

    Paypal accept Real Brasileiro (BRA). Can you put this currency code in the plugin?

    It's already there, is it not? We have all PayPal supported currencies in there.

    It's not there.

    See about BRA Currency on Paypal: This currency is supported as a payment currency and a currency balance for in-country PayPal accounts only.

    So, I already tested the use of this currency in another application and it worked perfectly. I think this is valid for TRY and MYR too.

    We will have to look into this then.

    I've added this and it will be out for the next patch release. That will probably happen shortly as a few minor issues have been reported that we need to release a patch for.
