YetaWF.CurrencyConverter Package


This package implements modules to perform currency conversion for site visitors. It is typically used in online stores. Actual conversion services are provided by http://openexchangerates.org/. You need to set up an account to use their service. Only one account is needed to provide conversion services for all sites in one instance of YetaWF.

The Currency Converter module retrieves the conversion data from http://openexchangerates.org/ once every 5 minutes. If the module is not used, the data is not retrieved. In other words, the data retrieved is cached, retrieved as needed, and only in 5 minute intervals. This means that this module will at most generate 18000 retrieval requests per month. On development systems (debug builds), data is cached for 8 hours resulting in at most 180 requests per month. That means you can sign up for their free service for site development at https://openexchangerates.org/signup/free.
