My base currency is AED. But as per paypal supported currencies I cant pay in AED. So, I converted the currency to USD and changing the currency code to USD.

Now I can able to reach paypal with currency code as USD and converted currency. After competing payment I am being redirected to paypal/express/return/ Frmo returnAction forwarded to Paypal\Model\Express\Checkout.php but after executing the line $service->submitAll() in the method place i am getting error as below

PayPal gateway has rejected request. The transaction currency specified must be the same as previously specified (#10444: Transaction refused because of an invalid argument. See additional error messages for details).

Unable to understand whats happening $service->submitAll()

  • Maybe the two amounts differ? I mean, the order in Magento is placed in AED, and the order in Paypal is place in USD. When Paypal checks the order amount, it has two different sums. Aug 18, 2015 at 17:31

This FREE Magento Extension that supports PayPal payments for not supported currencies by PayPal might be helpful for you.


First of all, we need to setup multi-currency shop (System -> Configuration -> GENERAL -> Currency Setup).

Then, we do necessary setup for PayPal Payment Method (System -> Configuration -> SALES -> Payment Methods).

After installing this module, you can go to System -> Configuration -> SALES -> Payment Methods -> Paypal Multi Currency and make necessary settings over there.

Here is the checkout page where you can see USD equivalent amount being displayed on Order Review step.

Finally, after the order is placed, the following information is displayed in Sales -> Orders in Magento admin/backend.
