Configuring Currencies

Read about how to configure currencies in your requests.

To specify the currency code in a request, you use the currency_code field.

For example:

"transaction": {
        "currency_code": "EUR",
        "buyer_name": "Scenario #1 buyer",
    "invoice_timestamp": "2020-05-20T01:59:59+04:00",
        "ship_to_address": {
            "street_name": "30 Monmouth Street",
            "city": "Bath",
            "postal_code": "BA1 2AP",
            "country_code": "GB"
        },

For a full list of supported codes, see Supported Countries and Currencies.
