Change currency rate source

Duplika shared this idea 1 year ago
Under Consideration

WHMcs uses a currency rate source that is unable to convert automatically some currencies like ARS (Argentine peso).

I see similar requests for other currencies; I wonder if it's possible to manually point to another currency rate source, so these requests are solved.

I'm aware this was a problem on 7.6; maybe being able to select different sources would help avoid any kind of similar issue on the future.

Hi there,

Thanks for the suggestion.

We've always used the ECB currency feed for exchange rates: https://www.ecb.europa.eu/stats/eurofxref/eurofxref-daily.xml

Is there an alternative feed you'd like to use instead?

Hi! Copying the format seen on https://www.ecb.europa.eu/stats/eurofxref/eurofxref-daily.xml, and using the data provided by https://www.floatrates.com/daily/usd.xml, I made this for anyone that uses USD as main currency:

https://inner.grupocloudspace.com/exchange_rates/usd.xml

So, if I where to have the possibility to replace the URL you are using with my own, I could automate the update of currencies I use that yours does not support (UYU, COP and, most importantly, ARS).
