Last week we posted an article on PayPal payments which are now one again available on our website as a method of payment.
We are now happy to inform you that we have successfully implemented PayPal and that all the problems we had with the implementation has now been resolved! The PayPal gateway works just like any other except that your shopping cart total which is in South African Rand (ZAR) will be converted into US Dollar (USD) when you proceed with the payment to PayPal. This will be done automatically based on the latest exchange rate.
As you may or may not know, when currency is converted from one format to the other, a small percentage is lost during the conversion. It is for that reason that we have added a small 1% handling fee to all PayPal transactions to make up for this loss.
Please let us know should you have any questions about the new PayPal gateway.
