Hi, I'm looking to open a small on-line shop for costumers in Israel, the problem is that when I use the Yola on-line store tool it doesn't give me the option to use the Israeli currency (ILS), can that be changed? thanks.

Hi ben

Here's a response I found by one of the Yola Reps. I don't know if this will be of help to you:

Are you looking at the currencies available in the Online Store widgets on Yola? These widgets are specific to PayPal and if your currency is not listed, you may have to choose a different one (eg. dollar).

If you have a different online payment system available in your country and they let you add buttons to your site (similar to PayPal buttons) you can add the code they give you to your site by following these steps:
1. Drag-and-drop an HTML widget from the sidebar on the right onto your page (the icon for this is a blue sphere).
2. An HTML editor will open up that will allow you to write or paste your code (use right-click > paste or ctrl-V to paste).
3. When you are done, click "OK" and your HTML will be displayed on the page.

You could also consider using a different type of shopping cart service such as http://www.mals-e.com/ They may have your currency.

Please let us know if these suggestions do not resolve the issues. We'll try to figure something else out.

Hi Ben

Sadly the built in Paypal widget does not allow for changing to ILS currency but if you follow these steps you can make what you want happen quite easily...

1) Log into your Paypal account here. https://www.paypal.com
2) Click on the "Merchant services" tab
3) Click the "Buy now" or "Add to cart" button (Depending on requirement)
4) Adjust your PayPal payment button settings, enter payment details and set your currency to ILS (etc.).
5) When finished editing click "Create Button"
6) Click the "Select code" button and right click on the highlighted code then click "Copy"
7) Paste that code in an HTML widget on the page you wish to have your Paypal button located.

Happy site building

You can find me with my head in the honey pot.
