    Hello,

    I would like to use Egyptian Pound (EGP) as a currency in my form but I am unable to locate it in the currency selector ..

    Please advise,

    I have checked your form and I see that you have the PayPal Checkout payment field.

    Upon checking further, I found in one of PayPal's guide that they do not have EGP listed as one of the currencies they support.

    https://developer.paypal.com/docs/api/reference/currency-codes/

    Stripe, Braintree, and BlueSnap are examples of our payment processing apps that have EGP available as a currency option.

    Hi Mike,

    Thank you for your reply.

    But I do not need to link my PayPal account to the form, since it will not incorporate an online payment option !

    Also upon testing the form it gives an error during submission (Obviously for the same reason of not connecting PayPal) !


    Is there a way around this?

    If you're not going to collect payments online, please use the Purchase Order tool. This has EGP in the currency option. Example:

    Simply delete your current payment tool and add Purchase Order. The products in your existing payment tool will be automatically recreated as soon as you add Purchase Order.

    If you have any questions, let us know.
