I have products in ZAR, GBP and USD. (and WP-Estore version 7.1.3)
Paypal does not accept ZAR, therefore I want to allow for manual checkout (which I have configured).
I also want to allow manual checkout for GBP.
The problem is that if I use an ‘add to cart’ option, wp-estore assumes USD, and if I ues ‘buy now’ button of course it bypasses the cart and goes straight to Paypal, which then gives an error (an no manual checkout option).
I appreciate that a shopping cart cannot MIX items from different currencies – that’s not required (I don’t expect to have GBP and USD in the same cart).
What is required is a way to offer people the opportunity to add to cart something that is not in the cart main currency.
How do I configure this?
Maybe you could consider a simple validation option where estore can check if someone adds a product with a different currency to what’s already in the cart, to show an error message, rather than only allow products with the main currency code (SETTINGS) to be added to cart?
I’m hoping that I’m missing something really simple here, yes?
Thanks for a great plugin,

Hi Bennie, You can create buy now button for a particular gateway for any product. Check the following post for details:
Let me know if that helps.August 14, 2014 at 6:59 pm #64899
As mentioned ‘if I use ‘buy now’ button…it bypasses the [shopping]cart and goes straight to Paypal, which then gives an error (and no manual checkout option).
PayPal does not accept ZAR, therfore I cannot use ‘buy now’ and need a manual check-out option for it.
But if I use manual, it assumes USD and not the actual product currency.

Please give me an example of the shortcode that you are using. You have set the currency to ZAR for this product in the “Buy Now” specific settings of this product correct?
Have you checked the multi-currency addon?August 15, 2014 at 6:17 am #64901
See page [http://www.deepliving.com/test]
The shortcode is [wp_eStore_buy_now_button id=184]
The ‘buy now’ currency is set to ZAR.
I cannot use this option as PayPal does not accept the currency ZAR…August 15, 2014 at 3:45 pm #64902wzpModerator

Out of curiosity, is it possible for you to use 2Checkout, since they do support ZAR?August 15, 2014 at 11:32 pm #64903
That shortcode you are using is wrong for this. I mentioned in my previous post to use the shortcode explained here:
Why aren’t you doing that? Your gateway specific buy now button shortcode should look like the following:
[wp_eStore_buy_now_for_specific_gateway id=”184″ gateway=”manual”]
The above shortcode makes a buy now button for “MANUAL” checkout. You can use it to create a buy now button for any gateway supported by estore.August 17, 2014 at 5:01 pm #64904
