Of the many APIs we published this week, fifteen were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we’ll shine a spotlight on those fifteen, which included the The Xchangeonline API.

Developers simply request the URL, specifying the desired function, the amount, the current currency, the desired currency, and of course their API key. The service can convert between 100 different currencies worldwide with the option of more currencies given a more expensive plan.
