    var listed_item_price = item.get('price');
    // calculate the updated USD prices 
    var new_price_USD = listed_item_price * currency_exchange_rate; // divide or times the currency exchange rate
    // set the updated prices for the items
    item.set('price', new_price_USD);
    checkout: {
      type: "PayPal",
      email: "",
      sandbox: false,
      success: "/p/success.html", // return URL
      cancel: "/p/error.html" // error URL
  // use USD as new checkout currency
  //optional use other available currency codes available for Paypal

Highlighted yellow is the additional codes to update your shopping cart item prices to checkout to Paypal and update the final currency ( to USD).

Some useful notes:-
  1. Always check on the current currency exchange rates and update accordingly at the remarks included.
  2. Make sure the default currency used (at your Blogger store) is not the final currency to use at Paypal checkout.
  3. Use the available currency code pre-built with simpleCartjs shopping cart plug-in and also the currency codes supported at Paypal.
  4. Always a good practice to notify your users if selecting checkout to Paypal, the items prices will be updated to a new price due to incompatibility (not supported) currency at/to your Paypal checkout.
  5. This function is TESTED & works very well with our PRO themes which you can download here at our Markeplace.

This advance Paypal checkout function can also be updated at our other BlogrCart Blogger store themes, freemium or PRO, available at our marketplace here, with slight adjustments. Contact us for assistance & one of our team member will surely help out & support.
