Currency looks OK in eCart (£), but showing as $ at Paypal checkout

Currency looks OK in eCart (£), but showing as $ at Paypal checkout

I imagine this is a settings issue with Paypal - I've mentioned it to my client a couple of times, but he hasn't gotten back to me.

Could someone have a quick look at the attached eCart file and juts confirm the cart object is correctly set to £? (I assume the £ reference at line 260 is the one?)

Any pointers as to where it might be located to change in paypal would be helpful if you happen to know, if not, no worries.

on the confirm page, there is code that sets the currency type being sent to paypal.

It will be different for paypal standard, papal direct payments or paypal express checkout, if you need help finding the exact line of code, i will need to know which payment method you are using.

Thanks Jason - I had a look in there and found:

<input type="hidden" name="currency_code" id="currency_code" value="USD" />

So have changed that to GBP and its fine now.
