    I`m trying to setup a paypal account but i have this error: "This recipient does not accept payments denominated in USD. Please contact the seller and ask him to update his payment receiving preferences to accept this currency."
    I`m not so good in php but i think there is something wrong, if anyone know about that i ask him nicely to tell me what should i do.
    I`m from Romania.
    Thank You!

    Here is the php code:
    $db1 = new ps_DB();
    $q = "SELECT country_2_code FROM #__vm_country WHERE country_3_code='".$user->country."' ORDER BY country_2_code ASC";
    $url = "";
    $tax_total = $db->f("order_tax") + $db->f("order_shipping_tax");
    $discount_total = $db->f("coupon_discount") + $db->f("order_discount");
    $post_variables = Array(
    "cmd" => "_ext-enter",
    "redirect_cmd" => "_xclick",
    "upload" => "1",
    "business" => PAYPAL_EMAIL,
    "receiver_email" => PAYPAL_EMAIL,
    "item_name" => $VM_LANG->_('PHPSHOP_ORDER_PRINT_PO_NUMBER').": ". $db->f("order_id"),
    "order_id" => $db->f("order_id"),
    "invoice" => $db->f("order_number"),
    "amount" => round( $db->f("order_subtotal")+$tax_total-$discount_total, 2),
    "shipping" => sprintf("%.2f", $db->f("order_shipping")),
    "currency_code" => $_SESSION['vendor_currency'],
    "address_override" => "1",
    "first_name" => $dbbt->f('first_name'),

    "address2" => $dbbt->f('address_2'),
    "zip" => $dbbt->f('zip'),
    "city" => $dbbt->f('city'),
    "state" => $dbbt->f('state'),
    "country" => $db1->f('country_2_code'),
    "email" => $dbbt->f('user_email'),
    "night_phone_b" => $dbbt->f('phone_1'),
    "cpp_header_image" => $vendor_image_url,
    "return" => SECUREURL ."index.php?option=com_virtuemart&page=checkout.result&order_id=".$db->f("order_id"),
    "notify_url" => SECUREURL ."administrator/components/com_virtuemart/notify.php",

    $query_string = "?";
    foreach( $post_variables as $name => $value ) {
    $query_string .= $name. "=" . urlencode($value) ."&";
    vmRedirect( $url . $query_string );
    } else {
    echo '<form action="'.$url.'" method="post" target="_blank">';
    echo '<input type="image" name="submit" src="" border="0" alt="Click to pay with PayPal - it is fast, free and secure!" />';
    foreach( $post_variables as $name => $value ) {
    echo '<input type="hidden" name="'.$name.'" value="'.htmlspecialchars($value).'" />';
    echo '</form>';

    I do not see anything wrong with your code. However, there is an option within paypal that asks whether you wish to except all types of currency.

    If this is the case try going to your profile

    Click profile
    Click Payment Receiving Preferences
    Under Block payments sent to me in a currency I do not hold.
    make sure "No, accept and convert to my currency" is clicked.

    I hope this helps.
