Change currency rate source



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.

Whilst it is not possible for WHMCS to obtain the rates for ARS, using the hook https://developers.whmcs.com/hooks-reference/everything-else/#fetchcurrencyexchangerates, it is possible for you to obtain the exchange rate yourself and apply it to your WHMCS.

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).
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?
