Hi Fundraiser,

I'm sorry that you have run into this problem. Did you set £ as your currency choice when you set up the store?

You would need to choose the currency you would like to use with the PayPal widgets on SynthaSite. Perhaps it would be an idea to have a page for UK customers and a page for other overseas customers? If you prefer, you can customise the buttons on PayPal's site (, generate and copy the HTML embed code. Back on your site, add an HTML widget to your page and paste the code in the HTML editor that opens.

I hope this helps.
