Egyptian digital advertisers can now choose to pay for facebook ads in the local currency (EGP). The social network has added the Egyptian pound to its accepted currencies, which wasn’t possible before.

Please note that you will be asked to create a new account and deactivate your current.
Meanwhile, we’ve created a new advertising test account in EGP to spend few pounds and get charged, the good news is that we have been charged us in EGP. Check below screenshot.
