Historical Data

History is important, so we store currency data from as far back as the year 2000.

Passing the date as a parameter, you can find all currency rates for a particular day.

With our timeframe endpoint, you can select a start and end date to get multiple currencies rates for each day.

Secure HTTPS

Ensure your connection is secure using HTTPS

Unlimited Requests

Staying up to date is important, so we offer plans that give you freedom.

Our plans offer a range from 1,250 API calls to unlimited, so you can select the best option for your project.

If your business requires a custom plan, feel free to get in touch.
