Title: Sankuru foxrate.org exchange rate plugin for Virtuemart
Post by: Erik P on February 17, 2009, 09:08:06 am
The default plugin for exchange rate conversion, convertECB.php, has no support for quite a few currencies. If the currencies you need, are not supported, you could try to use the exchange rates at http://foxrate.org.

The sankuru foxrate.org currency conversion plugin for virtuemart allows you to do just that: use the exchange rates maintained at http://foxrate.org in your virtuemart shop. The plugin uses the foxrate.org XML-RPC connector in order to grab their latest exchange rates.

You can download the plugin and peruse the installation instructions at: http://sankuru.biz/en/downloads.html.

Cheers
Erik

Thanks. Will try it out.
How does the currency module that came with VM get its exchange rates, and from where?
That's the main reason I'll be trying your one out because I couldn't find info on how VM currently handles that side of things.

Thanks for your contribution. Nice one.
