|Subject: geoPlugin: A free geolocation web service with currency converter|
Posted Dec 16, 2008 by borked
After much searching for a geolocation with currency converter solution for displaying product prices in the visitor's own currency, I came across geoplugin = http://www.geoplugin.com/
I really like the geolocalised currency converter - so easy to use, and I can set the base currency that my products sell in, so that the converter displays that price converted the visitor's local currency and have it display their currency symbol properly too.
One thing that is really neat that I haven't seen anywhere before (although I don't have much use for it), is that they can also return all the nearby places - you specify the radius and the maximum number of places to return, and you get a whole bunch of useful info of places near to the visitor - great for tourist things
Big thumbs up for geoPlugin
While I was searching for a plugin , I remember www.idiscoverindia.com used to use one Free Currency Exchange , however their service was very poor ,somehow they never responded not even when we wanted to buy a paid version. I hope this one works for us, as we are looking for a solution that can automatically change or display prices in local currency along with our USD prices.
