To accept PayPal in your Multi-Currency checkout, create subaccounts in your Braintree account for the different currencies and connect them to Cashier.

Braintree Payments is a PayPal service; it supports PayPal as well as credit card payments. To accept PayPal, you must have a PayPal Business Account.

To set up PayPal through Braintree in Bold Cashier, follow these steps:
