Setting Up Your Base Currency

PayKickstart offers the flexibility to charge different currencies on a per CAMPAIGN basis.  For example, maybe you run two businesses or have two different product offerings, you could have your local services-based business in Canada charge your clients in the Canadian Dollar, but you digital information products business in the US Dollar.

Important: You can currently process in up to 32 different currencies.  However, the currencies available will be dependent on the payment gateway you integrate with.

Here is how you can get started with setting up your Base Currency.

Step 1: Go to Configure and choose the Integrations page and click on the Payments tab.  Choose the Payment Gateway you want to integrate with and then select the Base Currency.  This will be your default currency used for each product you sell.

Step 2: In order to override the base currency for a specific campaign, click the Edit icon on the Campaigns page.

Step 3: Choose the Base Currency you would like to use and Save the Campaign’s settings.

Now that you have selected the Base Currency for your Campaign, customers will be charged in the selected Base Currency when purchasing a product related to the Campaign.

NOTE: PayKickstart also offers a currency conversion option. This is useful if you do not have a payment gateway in a specific currency, but want customers to see their native currency on the checkout.
