Standard Checkout Integration🔗

If you are using Razorpay Standard Checkout, you just need to enable PayPal from your dashboard and complete the onboarding procedure.

Once the onboarding is completed and PayPal is enabled for you, it appears on your checkout form for all supported currencies.

Currency Conversion🔗

PayPal Currency Conversion feature allows your customers to convert international payments in INR (or other currency) to a currency of their choice. This enables businesses to continue accepting payments via PayPal.

You will have your PayPal account configured to receive payments in all currencies. You can pass the currency in INR to Razorpay or enable more currencies on your account from your PayPal dashboard.

PayPal does not accept payment requests in INR. Razorpay facilitates currency conversions from INR to your customer's home currency.

  • By default, the PayPal conversion feature is enabled on Standard Checkout for all merchants, with PayPal account linked with the Razorpay account.
  • This is currently supported only on Razorpay standard checkout integration.
  • Indian merchant's/seller's PayPal account can accept cross-border payments only from non-Indian customers (non-Indian PayPal account) in non-INR PayPal supported currencies.

Razorpay applies open exchange rates for currency conversion on an hourly basis.

When converting currencies on a payment or transfer, the standard PayPal charges will be applicable.


You receive the payments made using PayPal directly to your PayPal wallet. PayPal makes the settlements in INR.

Ensure you have sufficient balance in your PayPal account before you initiate a refund.

Refunds can be initiated by you either from the Razorpay Dashboard or by using the Refunds API.
