Hi forza020,

In order not to affect the speed of the website, does it have to be installed on another hosting or is there another way?

Is it possible to use other API currency providers, such as the Google Finance API etc. ?

Can this script be made for extensions in Chrome?

Thanks in Advance

Hello sir,

1. You can install it wherever you want. The only thing – make sure that CORS headers are properly set.

2. Currently, only Fixer, Currency Layer, and OpenExchange APIs are supported.

3. Nope.


Can i integrate the plug in into my website but NOT to show the widget on the site HOWEVER, to convert the website currency with the real rate of exchange or not ??

Not sure if I get you right, but there is a PHP script that can pull currency rates from three different providers.

You can read this on how to set up that script:

Next, you can use cURL to send a request and get a response and render the result on your website.

no, I mean i do not need the customer to change the rate within the widget however i need to integrate the api so the prices on the website will be automatically converted to show the equivalent prices after customer change the website currency. is that could be done by that API ????

No, this cannot be achieved.

Can I use this for laravel php ecommerce website?

You can embed this plugin into any platform. Just include several JS/CSS files and initialize the plugin. The guide is:

Hi there, Currently I am having “Server temporary unvailabe” message when trying to convert. And same message from the original demo of the latest version.

How to fix this ? Please let me know

Hi! Thank you for reporting about the problem. The default currency rates provider has stopped working. I fixed it and uploaded a new update.

The plugin has two 3rd party rates providers. You can switch between them when they have uptime troubles.

See “rateProvider” option.

However I strongly recommend not to rely on 3rd party providers and setup your own currency rates provider server.

Hello can this script be added to a website built on Codeigniter?


It can be added to any website because it’s a jQuery plugin.

Moreover you can deploy own currency conversion script. Read here how to do it.



Can I add new country if needed and put my own rate?

Thank you

Hi. Unfortunately you can’t do it. The script supports 3 currency providers: Fixer, OpenExchangeRates, CurrencyLayer. I believe you can find at least one needed provider from that list.


Plugin was working fine and suddenly stopped working, i’m getting “Server temporary unvailabe”. I checked your website and it’s working. Really weird

I don’t know whats the issue! All the files are up to date and nothing touched.

Please advise how to fix it


Hi. Please ignore next update since we’ve fixed an issue.

Ok, Thanks:)


I’ve added SSL to my website, now the plugin is not working anymore I’m getting this error: Server temporary unvailabe

jquery-1.8.3.min.js:3 Mixed Content: The page at ‘https://www.*website*.com/' was loaded over HTTPS, but requested an insecure XMLHttpRequest endpoint ‘http://www.*website*.com/api_currency.php?from=TND&to=AED'. This request has been blocked; the content must be served over HTTPS.

Could you please help on this?

Looking forward to hearing from you


Hi. Just checked on my demo site and seems it’s working. I’ll try to do mroe tests.

Hi. It’s fixed now. updated the files. Thanks

You are welcome

Quick question, I like to use this in with a dynamic price table. Can the input form on the converter be disabled? so the value is giving by the price table. Thank you.

Unfortunately script doesn’t support this feature.

Hi… api which you are using for live updates is free or we have to pay for this?

Hi. Currently it’s free. This script is using both APIs: and google.

demo not working

Presale question: I see it works with Bitcoin but I need also Ethereum and Litecoin. Is it working? Thank you very much :)

Hello. Sorry, but this script does not support Ethereum and Litecoin.

Thanks for the new update :)

You are welcome :-)

Hi! Google added BTC and a few other currencies. When will the update of your script?

Hello. I think on Monday or Tuesday.

Hi. I updated the script. You will find in change log which currencies were added.

Amazing! Thank a lot

How to include this Widget on Wordpress ? Thanks

I don’t see problem here. You upload php file and then pass URL in widget initialization. For example:
    localRateProvider: 'api_currency.php', // This is the same as http(s)://
I can configure PHP script for you if you will provide me cPanel credentials.

I find a way to get it work, uploaded all the files under a new folder, and then added the html code as a widget and added the url of the website to call CSS JS, and PHP files. It’s working fine without using the code mentioned above. and the only problem now, that the the loading gif animated image is not showing. please give me your mail to send you cPanel credentials check the code. Thanks

Use this form please: Also include please path to file and link to online version.

Hi. Do you still support your script? If I will buy it and i have a problem will you help me with installation on my site?

Is it payment one-time?


Yes, of course. If you will have problems with installation, then send me FTP and cpanel (or plesk etc) credentials on email. Also tell me the place when you want to include this widget.

Yes, it’s one-time payment.


from where this script getting the values , can this script is capable to run 1000 queries per day ?


By default plugin uses 3rd party software. The currency rates are pulled from Google currency and, However I can’t guarantee 100% uptime of 3rd party software.

So, I developed own PHP rate provider ( ) which also pulls data from google and xe, but in random mode + the rates are being cached for a while to decrease requests to rate providers. As a result it can easily handle 1000 daily requests.


This plugin allows to enter not only numbers but letters allso. It’s very strange for currency converter.

Hi. I’ll fix it in next update. After 2-3 days it will be approved.

Great. Then I’ll buy it. ))

Hi. Changes has been approved. You can check the result on demo page.

Hello, script purchased right now, but as asked before, I would like the php file to handle myself API. Thank you.


PHP script and database dump are under root/php_api directory. Use this tutorial to create own currency rate provider:



o.k, find it. Any ways to add ECB to the rates provider, with live xml currencies feed? Many thanks for your assistance.


xe and google doesn’t support ECB, so it’s impossible. The same for live xml rates. I think you will be banned very soon when you will start frequently parsing all the currency rates.


Thanks for the great plugin, could I ask if you provide steps to install this in a wordpress site after my purchase? Thanks.


I need to know whether you have any HTML (PHP) skills, because If you don’t have, then it would be difficult for you because this is not a WP plugin and you will need to include JS into <head> section by yourself.
