Payment Gateway for ZAR (5 posts)

    Hi eShop Crew!

    First off, thanks for an incredible plugin - its versatility shines through time and again.

    I'm currently working with a client in SA and they've chosen an Elegantthemes template for their shop. According the themes documents, it is suggested they either work with eShop or PayPal. PayPal, however, does not support the local currency and instead converts it to USD.

    After installing your plugin, however, I see there is indeed an option for ZAR but I'm not sure which payment gateway to activate to facilitate payments seeing as none of these payments gateways actually seem to support ZAR at all (unless I'm just being a muppet). From my research, it would seem that it's only 2Checkout that supports ZAR (from the internationally accepted gateways that is) but this isn't an option on the plugin? Or am I missing something really obvious?

    In any event, thank you so much in advance for the time spent looking at this query as well that time spent on updating this plugin - it really is a piece of art.

    Kind Regards,
    Tiny Giant Studios

    We're not adding any new gateways to eShop at the present time - sorry.

    No I'm not asking for a new gateway, I'm asking which one should I activate when using ZAR as currency? :)

    No idea, you'll have to find out whether any of the included ones support it. just because the currency is there doesn't mean any of them support it. Remember it also includes a Cash and Bank option, where you could use any currency.

    Very few of the international payment gateways support South Africa because of the strict banking laws. You will need to look at one of the local gateways and write (or get someone to write for you) a module for the cart if one does not exist.
    Gateways might look at:
    http://www.payfast.co.za (They have a gateway module for WP eCommerce)

    Good luck
