hi dear
please i have two issues

1- in the wpml currency switcher, when i use for example currency like (saudi riyal) and i use paypal , it will give this message in the checkout

PayPal error (10605): An error (10605) occurred while processing your PayPal payment. Please contact the store owner for assistance.

so, why WPML not doing something like (woocommerce currency switcher), they are using any currency in the website , but in the checkout page , the currency will be US Dollar and the price will be approximately shown also in the other currency like saudi riyal.
so why you do not do like them !!!?

2- the 2nd issue , also they have system to choose the currency based on the country, why you do not have this system ???!!

you are professional company , and we are using your plugins for translating the websites , But in the same time you are preventing us to use the above mentioned techniques , that will not help me in the online store , because issue like this , all customers will run away.

so please i expect you will fix these issues ,

3- by the way , i cannot update your plugin now , because i updated before and i had so many problems so i restored the website.

hope you can fix all of these issues

Hi there,

Looking at your debug information I can see you are running older versions of our plugins, please update WPML and WooCommerce Multilingual and see if that resolves the problems, if it does not come back please and we'll help you fix that.

Hello, thank you for contacting WPML Support!

The error message is not caused by WPML but by the fact that the Saudi Riyal is not supported by Paypal. See: hidden link

You may try a solution like the one shown in this old thread to disable Paypal for the unsupported currency:
❌Please note that the code is old and is supplied "AS IS" without any warranties and support.

I would also suggest you consider contacting one of our certified partners from this link:

You will get the custom code you need to get on with your project.

About the second question, the best way to send a feature request is by using this form:

Please let me know if you need further details.

Kind regards,
