How to Include Currency Conversion Text on Your Website

The single currency conversion is returned to your page via the shortcode of [exchange to="usd" value="1"]%%exchange%%[/exchange], in this case returning $0.67. To return another currency you should simply alter the value. For example, [exchange to="usd" value="5"]US%%exchange%%[/exchange] returns US$3.35.

You'll note that we use the %%exchange%% placeholder. This is used primarily to support currency tooltips. For example, [exchange to="usd" value="100" modal="This is modal text, AU$100 will buy you %%currency%% USD"]US%%exchange%%[/exchange] will return US$66.92 (note the tooltip when you hover over the value). In using placeholders you simply have more control over how the tooltip text is returned.
