Reviews

Useless

It doesn’t work. The currency is not converted. It just passes the amount (no matter of which currency it is) to Paypal which is obviously inaccurate.

Does not convert rates

Unlocks Paypal, bot STILL DOES NOT CONVERT CURNCY RATE! If someone by an item for 8 BGN in paypal checkout is 8 EUR OR USD ( i decided to change the curency of paypal if there is any affect.. But still no 🙁 )

POUR SUPPORT

of course … because I do not buy the pro option. no hurry to provide support.

But when I see in another section (WooCommerce plugin) responded very fast, indicating where to do it (as a plugin), once pedi support in their section, not interested in the answer.

It took 7 days, I will remove your plugin.

Not working for ZAR

This plugin used to work previously on my website, but no longer does. When I try to activate the Paypal payment gateway I can’t, as it states that Paypal does not support my store currency of Rands. Have even paid someone to try troubleshoot this, but still does not work. Please urgently advise?
