FAQ

How frequently are the values updated?

The table values are updated once a day GMT from central bank and financial institution sources.

Can I paste multiple converters, for different currencies?

Version 2.1 onwards allows multiple currency converters on the same sidebar.

Why are the prices always favorable?

The conversion uses a single price value, the mid-price between buy and sell side in the interbank market for the currency in question. The mid-price, by definition, is more competitive than the buy price and sell price for selling and buying respectively.

Can I paste the currency converter into a post ?

Yes, javascript code is available directly from fx-rate.net. You have to paste the javascript into the post in HTML mode.

Is there support ?

Yes, further support is available at fx-rate.net/support and fx-rate.net/conditions

Reviews

Great Plugin!

This is a great currency converter plugin. Thanks for creating it and keeping it up to date.

Helpful plugin for a currency dealer

I was told to convert Iraqi Dinar exchange value to USD and other currency of the world. So went to google converter. But it was very tedious for me.
So, one of my friend suggested to use the Converter plugin on my website and lo! my work was done in a jiffy. Now at least I am not feeling fatigue while converting the currencies. God bless the creator of the plugin who made it easy to do job of money conversion.

Could not use it

It could be 5 star if it was simple as many others converters and without external link. Also it autocratically puts Euro everywhere. Deleted it.
