    nice job, I’m already using one, but is an romanian script made by a bank from here :D

    If I could get a bit more of the description about what the exchange rate tool is for people who are new at being a website creator that would be great. The commenter Andreeyps2 said they use a Romanian script, what is that?

      The exchange rate tool will simply convert your local currency into another currency, so you can see how much a specific product or service will cost in your native currency. For example, in Mexico the currency is pesos and is worth around 8-10 times less than the US dollar. So if you are pricing an item for $1,000 pesos, it could scare an American customer just from the high price tag alone. However, with the presence of an exchange rate tool, the American can easily see it will only cost him approximately $80-100 USD. So it’s all about the psychology of shopping. If you feel that this can benefit you, it would make sense to add it when you create a website with our web site builder.

    It was cool to see the different types of money on your explanation of the widget being added to your free website. I’ve really had no idea what the tool was being described until I read it again, so this is a tool to change money from one currency to another right?

      Essentially yes, it is. But the real reason you would want to add this when you create a website is so that your potential customers, who may be from different countries around the world, can easily punch in their own numbers to gain an instant understanding of what your products or services will cost them. If you don’t have international customers, then this tool is probably irrelevant to you. However, if you do, or if you are pursuing expansion into international markets, it would behoove you to add this exchange rate tool especially since it is so easy to do with our website builder. If you don’t see that it is having an impact on your small business, then you can just as easily remove it!

    I’m trying to build my website and expand my services worldwide. This is the perfect thing for me! I agree with some of the other commenters as a regular price may scare potential buyers who don’t know the conversion rate away. The fact that it can change for the benefit of the customers is wonderful.

      Yes, most people don’t realize the impact an international currency can have on the buying psychology of your visitors. Giving them an easy way to convert to their own native currency can do wonders for your international sales potential. That’s why we recommend adding this when you make a website with our html web builder.

    I looked at the options for currency, are those the only ones because they are the most widely accepted? Does that limit trades if other money can’t be used? Can your website builder potentially add other currencies? I know that dollars are accepted by most places but this was just a question I was wondering about when reading through your great tutorial!

      It is important to understand that this currency exchange rate tool is a third part application, it is not native to our website maker. So that means you can control it from Widget24 and set the specs however you want them before you embed the tool onto your free website.

    Branching out your company to world wide is quite an accomplishment and can be overwhelming and the same time. To make it simpler is this great tool, one less thing you have to worry about. Let it do the work for you and you just continue to use a website maker to continue to make your page be the most up to date and most inviting to your potential clients.

    I can see how many businesses would use the website makers to add a exchange rate tool to their free web sites in order to attract potential business. This tool allows you to expand your business world wide in a way that may not have been possible before. Even just having the option of this tool on your page gives you an edge over other pages in my opinion as people see that you are trying to accommodation them.
