The conversion service is provided by https://openexchangerates.org
In order to use the Currency Converter module, the website administrator should create an account at https://openexchangerates.org/signup/free. This service allows to get a free account for all currencies available on the service with the limit of 1000 requests per month. Please check the actual service conditions at the official Open Exchange Rates website.
After you created an account and specified the website where you plan to use rate service, you'll be given the application ID.
You should insert it to the Admin Panel -> System Configuration -> System Settings -> Listing Currency Converter -> API Code
Also you need to specify:
If you plan to activate the currency which has a high rate to a main listing currency, you can face the situation when converted prices are too large and do not fit into default design of your website. Here is what you can do:
Website visitors can choose current listing currency among active currencies specified by the administrator.
After it was saved, a new listing currency will be applied to every money-type listing field.
Search forms will display two price-related fields: the active one (Price EUR) will relate to selected currency, while inactive (Price) will automatically calculate price from visitor currency to main listing currency.
Search results will display price in selected currency, but the Listing Details page will show both prices: in main currency and the converted one.
