    Default Converting Currency from NZ to USD for PayPal

    Hello everyone,

    I'm wondering how to sort this out as, I've hunted through the forums here and can't find anything to help me.

    I have a zen-cart set up www.quasimoto.co.nz and I'm wanting to convert the NZ dollar total price to USD before going to Paypal. Currently it's just taking the NZ dollar and charging a US dollar amount (far too much) for the same figure.
    Has anyone been able to convert the total price on the fly before sending to paypal.
    Display the total on the site in NZ and send to Paypal a converted US dollar amount.

    Hope that all makes sence.

    Also, is there a counter to show visitors as apposed to page hits?

    Thanks for any help.

    Isn't that going to confuse the heck out of your customers? If you don't mind - why are you wanting to do that?

    Hi, thanks for your reply.

    It's just that the owner I created the site for, would like the prices displayed in NZ dollars, but Paypal doesn't support NZ dollars so it needs to be in USD on Paypal, but he doesn't want the price on the site to be displayed in USD.

    Any ideas?

    Is there a way to do that?
    Or would it have to be manually coded?

    Thanks
