Watch Question

looks like they issue pre paid visas, and are capable of printing credit cards for corporations although they have a lot of low level educational grammer errors so i would shy away.
This website is of a Money exchange from one type to another
For eg:
I USU = 0.72 EURO

This website is not providing any API's for integration

Hi Parth48,
Here I am again :)
Check this : http://www.xe.com/dfs/product.php
They provide XML feed that you can use for integration. Check out the Sample XML file they have provided.
Let me know if you need more help with this.

I am not sure what kind of integration you are looking at? 'cause FirstExchanger has its own currency exchange rates mechanism in place. Can you be more specific? It will help me to get you the right solution.

So you want to use xe.com's feed to determine current currency rate and then based on that you want to buy currency from firstexchanger.com?

Well this might be a little complex solution so I will need more details if I were to answer this question precisely. However here is an idea how you can go about it.
First you make a provision in your ASP.Net page so that it checks for last date when the xe feed was populated in your own database
if the date is not today's date then the xe feed will be called and latest currency rates will be added to your local database for today[Assuming you are going for 24 hours Feed rather than Hourly feed]
Now based on that data you can display various currency rates on your site
Now comes the difficult part firstexchanger has not put any API information on their site so you will have to reach out to their support and ask them about any interface they are providing.
If they are not providing any interface than we might have to go for Screen Scraping which might involve legal implications in this case/
