  1. Find the settings page in WooCommerce’s sub menu.
  2. First time only: Select your target Currency
  3. Accept the suggested exchange rate shown in the button.
  4. Save settings.



Go to the 2nd tab and choose your favorite exchange rate provider other than the preselected one.
Recommended: register a valid API ID and activate it with the radio button.


If you need a custom currency,check the check-box “Use Custom Currency” on top of the 1st tab, then you will see 3 new text input fields
called Code, Symbol, and Name. Fill this out with the appropriate settings.
For example: Code=”XOF”, Symbol=”XOF”, Name= “CFA Franc”
Save your settings and navigate to WooCommerce’s settings page where you should find your new custom currency.
Select it and save your settings.
Navigate back to PayPal Currency Converter Pro settings page to check if everything is set.


You can set a fixed amount and a calculated fee based on a percentage. You can decide if the handling fee should be taxed or not, and you can decide if the percentage calculation should as well be calculated including the shipping total. Furthermore you may name your handling fee resp. how it is shown in your order details.
As soon as the amount or percentage is greater than zero, it will be added and as a part of the order total be converted as well. So you can forward the PayPal charge to your customer.

Handling fees


This settings are on by default.
Override PayPal’s Validation error on “amount comparison” or “PayPal currencies do not match”.
Orders for virtual (downloadable) products will be completed when checked! Non virtual product orders will be set to processing and stock will be reduced.


For automatic updates you have three options.
One option is to use a suitable Cron-Job plugin like “WP-Crontrol” and register the hook “ppcc_cexr_update” for your desired update frequency.
Another option is to call the given AJAX url ( from your hosting servers cron job or an online cron job service like EASYCRON.COM for a hassle free solution.
(This ensures an accurate timing for the upates.)


If the checkbox “log” is checked an email notification will be sent to the admin’s email address every time the exchange rate is updated with date, time, and exchange rate value.
Furthermore the log file will be populated with every action the plugin does.
The log file can be found and viewed in the indicated location while using your FTP client.
For additional convenience you can open the log-file in a pop up window.
To make this work add: “Allow from <your servers ID will be indicated in the plugin>” to the .htaccess file inside ”../plugins/woocommerce/logs/”

How can I show the converted total, tax, and conversion rate on the checkout page?

Sample payment description content:

Cart Total: <span class="ppcc_cart_total" /><br />
Shipping Total: <span class="ppcc_shipping_total" /><br />
