Convert currencies with the Currency Conversion service

Convert currencies with the Currency Conversion service in Productsup.

Note

All exchange rates are provided by openexchangerates.org.

Multi-language feeds do not always provide the localized pricing for all countries. To get around this, you could use the Currency Conversion service. It uses the latest exchange rates and converts price data into several currencies at the same time.
