Exchange rate in CGI
Posted on 2001-08-13
Any help appreciated on this one.....
I currently have a UK based web site which accepts on-line payments in US dollars (via 3rd Party). The value of the payment is displayed on the page in UK pounds and I put the US dollar equivelant embedded in a CGI script which links to 'Paypal' (3rd Party payment).
The problem is going to be with currency variations the amount displayed in UK pounds will not be the same as the amount in the embedded link. I need some way to update this value which is passed across to 'Paypal' and to make things worse I have no knowledge of scripting so any replies please keep it simple....
