Multi-currency is an additional licence that can be added to your account to enable you to pick which payment currencies your users are able to process payments for. This licence is used in conjunction with the 'Operating country' and 'Manage languages'.

To check if you have the correct licence activated on your account you can log into the Paytia portal as an admin profile.
