In order for transactions to complete, please see the following:

  • The currency of the payment type being used must match the currency expected to be received in the country the device/SIM card is home to (see table below).
    For example: Customers with a device/SIM card based in South Korea must use PayPal configured to USD currency.
  •   If the Credit Card being used is in another currency than what is expected in your country, the following workaround can be performed:
    1. Setup a PayPal account using a Credit Card
    2. Configure the PayPal currency to match the expected PayPal currency for the country listed below
    3. Configure the payment options to use PayPal

Note: With PayPal transactions, there may be a foreign exchange rate applied if your source currency does not match the PayPal currency.

Note: This table is based on your device/SIM card home location, and not on your current location. For more information when travelling, see the Additional Information section below.
