I have set my first cart to display prices in GBP () but I click to buy in Payl, the currency hows as dollars. It doesn't convert according to exchange rate, if the value of the order is 9.99, PayPal wants to take $9.99. I'm sure it's something simple, but I can't find it

You will need to set up the paypal files to ensure that the order amount is passed through to them in GBP.

Open up paypalgateway.asp in a text editor and locate the line:

const CurrencyCode="USD" ' other values are EUR, CAD, GBP, JPY, USD

Change this to:

const CurrencyCode="GBP" ' other values are EUR, CAD, GBP, JPY, USD

This should fix your issue.
