New Module: Exchange Rates

Ben from PutYourLightsOn has released a new module called Exchange Rates, which allows you to easily convert currency and get the latest exchange rates (updated at least every hour) right inside your EE templates. This module is exciting to me because it’s in a different vein than most of the modules I come across.

The module has two functions: get current exchange rate for two currencies

{exp:exchange_rates:get_rate from="EUR" to="USD"}

or converting a certain amount from one currency to another.

{exp:exchange_rates:convert amount="900" from="USD" to="EUR"}

The rates are pulled from the Eurpean Central Bank via the handy XML provided by the bank.

I downloaded and tested out the module and it works as described on the information page and in the documentation.

Hi Ryan,

Excuse the blatant self-promotion, but a few months back I wrote a similar plugin that you may find useful (

It pulls the exchange rate data directly from the web service.
