By default, your currency will automatically correspond with your selected country when first creating your account. Click here to learn how to change your currency with Thinkific Payments.
When first connecting with Stripe, the default currency will be $USD. This currency can be customized as desired. All courses and bundles will be sold in the currency you set within your Stripe integration settings in Thinkific.
To Change Your Site Currency:
- Go to Settings
- Select the Payments tab
- Select the desired currency under Currency in the Stripe block under Card processing
- Click Save
PayPal is usually set up as an additional provider alongside Thinkific Payments or Stripe. Currency cannot be set at the PayPal level, but will take on the same currency you set in Thinkific Payments or Stripe. This means the currency set within Thinkific Payments or Stripe will automatically apply to PayPal as well.
If you are only connected to PayPal, the default currency is USD and cannot be customized.
- PayPal does not support all of currencies available in Stripe. If you are connected with both Stripe and PayPal, but your chosen currency is only supported in Stripe, your Paypal button will not work. Make sure to check out PayPal's supported currencies here if you plan on connecting Stripe and Paypal to your checkout: PayPal Supported Countries and Currencies

Can I sell in multiple currencies?
We don't currently support charging multiple currencies with our built in payment integrations. If you need to support multiple currencies, we have some options here: Can I sell in multiple currencies?
I want to change the currency that I'm selling my Thinkific courses with after I've been selling them in my current currency for a few months. What are my options?
We do not recommend changing currency after making your first sale, as Stripe does not allow users to make purchases in multiple currencies.
If you're not concerned about users making multiple purchases, we have more details instructions here: Can I change the currency of my site if I have already accepted payment in a different currency?
