PayTabs plugins make the integration with the PayTabs payment gateway very easy by providing a ready-made and easy-to-install plugin that enables you to be ready and go with a few steps to get you up and running with your business.


This article is dedicated to walking you through the differences between the Cs-Cart store's Default/Base currency and the OpenCart store's Localisation/Display currency. Understanding this is a major step to define what are the needed currencies list to be configured on your Paytabs Merchant Profile.


To accept payments with multible currencies, you will need just to send an email to ([email protected]) requesting to add the list of currencies you desire to add, mentioning your profile id along with the country your business operates in. The approval is subjected to the acquirer bank approval.


As a default, multiple currencies serve to display prices in the store. Payments are usually accepted in the store's primary currency only. You can manage those currencies by navigating to your store Administration → Currencies.


Your store can have several currencies.


You should know that if your merchant profile at Paytabs is configured to accept payments in different currencies, customers who use the Paytabs payment method in your store will be charged in the alternative (not the primary) currency, and the order total will be calculated according to the store currency exchange rate that you define here.


All prices you are to provide in the Administration panel are assumed to be in the primary currency. CS-Cart & Multi-Vendor use the primary currency for all calculations. When necessary, the results of those calculations are converted to the selected currency according to the specified exchange rate.
