Re: why api rate is different from exchange-rate-calculator

Hi,

 

Thank you for your inquiry. FX API calculate the converted amount in the destination currency using buy-sell rate. The FX calculator websites usually source their convertion rates from the treasury tables. Can you tell us which FX calculator you are using?

 

Thank you,

Hi,
I feel that you might be using the FX api in sandbox mode. In sandbox mode you don't get the realtime rates/prices. For getting the actual rates you would have to move your app to production.
