FreeLance Work, Auction web site mauritiantrader.com

I have taken a freelance work, the web site was an auction site

http://www.mauritiantrader.com/

Customer need

Basicly i would like the currency for my auction website to be changed from $(dollars) to Rs(rupees). Paypal don’t take payment in “Rs”. So i am happy for the listing fees to be in $ and that bidders pay me in $. The currency in mauritius is in rupees. So it would be good if bidders can bid in rupees “Rs”.

The site used free opensource perl script EveryAuction by

http://www.everysoft.com/

The version of code, installed on the server won’t have the currency variable used properly, most of the currency are hard coded instead of using the currency variable, so i made a find and replace, $ to Rs. 🙂

It was not so easy, as $ is also used by perl variables and some predefined variables, so have to make sure, i am replacing the currency $ to Rs.

On paypal side, i just divided the due amount by 30 to convert it to USD, so paypal can accept the payment.
