For a successful PayPal gateway integration, you need to follow the following steps to ensure its working as intended.
We assume the following.
If you set a different currency for PayPal than the currency you trade in on your website, make sure to set the currency in point 2 below to the same as your default PayPal currency. Any sale will then be converted to the PayPal currency before posting to the payment gateway.
Log in to admin and navigate to: “Site Dashboard” > “Website Configuration” > “Finances”
You have the option to automate the exchange rate updates by running a “cron job” from within your cPanel once a day. If you are unsure how to do that, please log a support ticket at exelwebs.com and we will gladly assist you.
Currency exchange rates are pulled in from the Google Currency database and we can not guarantee the accuracy of the rates.
To test your integration buy anything from your website and use the PayPal payment gateway.
When you get to the PayPal login page do not use your PayPal account. Rather use our “PayPal Sandbox buyers account”.

One you tested successfully, test it again and then test it again…
This is critical as any failures will almost certainly be a guaranteed lost sale and customer.
