    Yes, you can add custom currency by adding following code in functions.php file. Don't forget to replace all instances of ABC and dummy label with correct currency code and label.

    function my_app_add_currency ($currencies) {
        $currencies['ABC'] = __('ABC - Imaginary currency, please change :)', 'appointments');
        return $currencies;
    }
    add_filter('app-template-currencies', 'my_app_add_currency');
    
    function my_add_currency_symbol ($symbols) {
        $symbols['ABC'] = __('ABC', 'appointments');
        return $symbols;
    }
    add_filter('app-template-currency_symbols', 'my_add_currency_symbol');

    Take care and have a nice day :slight_smile:

    I would love to do it for you but, its not recommended to add/edit PHP code via WP editor. Because if something went wrong then you can not revert your changes.

    I requested FTP and WordPress admin login details in other thread. I will do it when I received the information.

    Please add this thread link in the email also for reference.

    Take care and have a nice day :slight_smile:

    First and most importantly never ever post login details in forum thread. Its a public forum and regularly indexed by google. So any one can see these information and use them to hack/delete your site.

    Always send login credentials via our secure contact form. Go to https://premium.wpmudev.org/contact/ - select "I have a different question", fill out the form with requested information and submit.

    I have edited your response and removed it now.

    These are just for future reference. The above cPanel information will work for me and I will change it for you.
    If you are using cPanel then see below article on how to get FTP details.
    http://support.hostgator.com/articles/how-to-create-an-ftp-account-in-cpanel

    And here is more information about what FTP is and how you can use it.

    I will post a reply here when done!

    I have added custom currency in the list of PayPal currency as seen in screenshot attached. To do this I created a tiny (aplus-custom-currency.php) mu-plugin and uploaded it wp-content/mu-plugins folder.

    Sajid so sorry. i tried testing the payment gateway paypal and it showed error while making payment in indian rupees. so i contacted paypal and they told me that i cannot use paypal for indian rupees. now i am stuck again. i will have to use a indian payment gateway to collect payments. how do i integrate the indian payment gateway with appointment plus so that it works fine and confirms the appointments when payment is done.

    pls reply so badly worried bro

    i am waiting for a revert on this thread of mine as it is very important.

    i want to test the payment and confirmation system of appointment plus. So kindly let me know how can i incorporate indian payment gateway with appointment plus where after payment the appointment gets confirmed.

    I am sorry for delayed response on this ticket. I am afraid appointments + does not support any more payment gateways for payments (by default).

    However it can seamlessly be integrated with MarketPress plugin. We have lots of other gateways like 2checkout and mollie that might support indian currencies. That said when some one will purchase an appointments product it status will automatically changed to confirmed.

    If there are no gateways that meets your requirements, then you have to create your own if you know PHP or hire a third party developer from custom development board.
