Hi Everyone,

 

I'm creating flower delivery store for UAE (https://flowersbyblush.com). And store currency is AED. I have linked my PayPal account.  Even though PayPal Express Checkout is listed as supported payment gateways in UAE (pls check the  following link : https://www.shopify.ca/payment-gateways/united-arab-emirates ) It gives an error message saying  "Receiving country does not support the transaction currency." 

 

But when I changed the store currency it proceed to payment.

 

I want to have store currency in AED. What's the solution for this?

 

Thanks You

This is an accepted solution.

AED currency is not supported by PayPal.

So, you cannot use paypal gateway unless you use some apps to switch currency at checkout stage.

 

You can also use any payment gateways which supports AED.
