[WHMCS] Google Checkout Process Payments in Multiple Currencies

Google Checkout is known to not support multiple currencies. If you are a UK based seller selling in USD this can become a problem, though a little hidden feature in WHMCS can solve this by processing payments in your Google Checkout accounts currency.

  1. Login your WHMCS admin control panel
  2. Navigate to: Setup -> Payments -> Currencies & add GBP (If you have deleted USD and added GBP as your default then add USD)
    Currency Code: This is the code of the currency such as GBP for pounds or USD for US dollars.
    Prefix: £, $ etc…
    Suffix: GBP, USD etc…
    Format: Leave this as it is
    Base Conv Rate: This is the conversion rate for today (The difference between your default currency, you can find this out at xe.com)
  3. Navigate to: Setup -> Payments -> Payment Gateways
  4. Locate Google Checkout in the drop down menu and click “Activate”
    Show on order form: Check this
    Display Name: Leave this as the default “Google Checkout”
    Merchant ID: This can be found in your Google Checkout account in the header of every page
    Merchant Key: This can be found in your Google Checkout account in: Settings -> Integration
    Convert To For Processing: Set this to the currency of your Google Checkout account (so if your account is UK based set this to GBP if it is US based set this to USD)
  5. Click “Save Changes”
