#SilverStripe Currency Converter

Simple service for converting currencies for SilverStripe 4+

Full credits go to: webtorque7. I've merely upgraded the module to be compatible with SilverStripe 4+ and made a few slight improvements.

Installation

Composer

composer require webtorque/currency-converter

Usage

To convert $99.99 NZD to USD

$convertedAmount = CurrencyConverter::get_converter()->convert(99.99, 'NZD', 'USD');

Exchange rates

Default implementation uses an xml feed at http://www.ecb.europa.eu/stats/eurofxref/eurofxref-daily.xml. Other sources and be created by inheriting from CurrencyConverter and implementing the retrieveCurrencies function.

Then change the converter config option on CurrencyConverter e.g.

Zanderwar\CurrencyConverter\CurrencyConverter:
  converter: MyCurrencyConverter

Alternatively, you can pass the name of the class into get_converter e.g.

$convertedAmount = CurrencyConverter::getConverter(MyCurrencyConverter::class)->convert(9999, 'NZD', 'USD');
