Exchange Rates Feed

Few days back I got mails from many customers reporting that the exchange rates feed stopped working due to an error with the host, the tool was linked to a free exchange rates provider source and therefore it is unsupported.

Yesterday Mark Polino gave me a great idea to pull sources from YAHOO or GOOGLE and ignore the source we are using, and due to the large base of customers currently using this product I have redeveloped the product to count on more reliable source by readying from YAHOO which I believe will not go down for long time!

YAHOO API provides the rates over a methodology that does not work with the product, therefore I had to “find/amend” a web-service that reads from YAHOO and send results back to the application and the web-service is currently hosted at our web host, I know that the host is not reliable as YAHOO but at least we can get rid of issues we used to face and minimize the downtime as it became controllable.

To get the updated package, please drop me a mail and I will send it immediately!
