Classibase version 1.4.5 released – Other Currencies

We keep improving our classifieds script and constantly add new features to stay up to date with current classifieds website trends. In Classibase version 1.4.5 we added new classifieds website features and widgets.

Here are list of important new features added to Classibase in version 1.4.5

Currency setting for PayPal payments (EUR, GBP etc.)

We added currency setting for PayPal payments. If you create classifieds website for countries with currency other than US dollar then this is must have feature for your classifieds website. You can choose from 24 different currencies supported by PayPal. This is useful if your website is in Europe where people use euro for all their payments, they will feel more comfortable making payments on your website. Because converting from euro to dollar in their mind before making payment may dramatically reduce number of paid users. Where if payments are done in euro they will make decision much quicker and will be more likely to purchase your service.

There are some restrictions for some currencies. View currency terms from PayPal developer website.
