ExchangeRates currency plugin for VirtueMart 3
This currency plugin for VirtueMart 3 uses the services of Exchange-Rates.org. This plugin supports a wide range of world currencies in a fast, reliable and secure way and also implements an effective cache system, so all Exchange-Rates.org currency requests get cached and the upcoming recuests are handled locally to speed up the conversion process. The default cache lifetime is 6 hours, but this can be easily configured to fit your needs.
