How frequently are the values updated?
The table values are updated once a day GMT from central bank and financial institution sources.
Can I paste multiple converters, for different currencies?
Version 2.1 onwards allows multiple currency converters on the same sidebar.
Why are the prices always favorable?
The conversion uses a single price value, the mid-price between buy and sell side in the interbank market for the currency in question. The mid-price, by definition, is more competitive than the buy price and sell price for selling and buying respectively.
Can I paste the currency converter into a post ?
Is there support ?
