I have a store in Hong Kong. The Shopify site states that the payout currency can only be in Hong Kong Dollars. I was wondering if that is only for the payout using Shopify Payments? This thread I found seems to imply that payout currency can be different for different gateways. https://community.shopify.com/c/Payments-Shipping-Fulfillment/UK-Based-GBP-only-option-as-Shopify-Payment-Payout/m-p/527491#M22893 For me, my presentment currency is in USD. If customers checkout using Shopify payments in USD, Shopify payments will convert it into HKD before being sent to my bank account. This is not ideal. I also have PayPal Express Checkout. What I want to know is if I set my primary currency in PayPal as USD, does it somehow convert the USD (presentment currency) taken from the customer to HKD (payout currency) then back into USD before appearing in my PayPal account? Or does it just take the USD from customers straight into my PayPal as USD (thereby changing the payout currency to USD)? I want to know if it is more beneficial to set my primary PayPal currency as USD or HKD.

I would like to know if it is possible that when customers choose the 'Bank transfer' option of payment that they are allowed to pay in a different currency to my presentment currency in a bank account in a different country? E.g. My store is in Hong Kong and the presentment currency is in USD but I get customers from the UK paying GBP. I have a UK GBP account and was wondering if it would be possible for UK customers to pay me in GBP via bank transfer so it would be better for both them and I. Of course I would have to inform my customer how much GBP to pay me. Or is this not allowed / legal?
