    I'm afraid that you can only select one of the currencies that are listed in the Currency field of the Payment Tool. If South African Rand is not available in the list, then either our integration or the payment processor itself does not support that currency as the currency for receiving payments.

    Usually, payment processors only support the most common currencies as the currencies for receiving payments. When our developers were developing the Payment Tools, they could only build the integration for the currencies that the Payment Processor allows.

    In other words, if you want to use South African Rand as the currency in which to accept payments, you must use a Payment Tool for the payment processor which supports it. For example, Purchase Order tool allows for this currency to be selected, because the Purchase Order does not depend on limitations in any external payment processor:

    Stripe seems to also support payments in this currency:
