MasterCard exchange rate app/script?


#1

Anyone know if this exists? I know there is a website but it’s really clunky on mobile when I want to do a quick conversion.

I use vert but it shows bank rates so it’s not too accurate.

Thanks!

The mobile version of the Mastercard tool seems to work pretty well (https://bit.ly/2J3NrPi). It’s a bit of a pain not being able to type the currencies, though.

I’m not aware of any other tools to view the Mastercard rate, though.

That’s the one I don’t like. Thanks however, was wondering if there was something that made it easier. Thanks for the help however!

Well now I’m wondering how difficult it would be to scrape that page or use a private API (I notice a call made to https://www.mastercard.co.uk/settlement/currencyrate/fxDate=2019-02-18;transCurr=GBP;crdhldBillCurr=JPY;bankFee=0;transAmt=100/conversion-rate on that page if I try to convert 100GBP to JPY but I think it uses cookies to limit access…)

Thanks. I was looking at building a script with python but then started doing sites so I don’t have anytime.

Maybe I’ll take a look after my exams.

Thanks!

From a quick DuckDuckGo search: https://developer.mastercard.com/product/currency-conversion-calculator

Is this not the API endpoint you are looking for?

Sounds like it’s not free, but that would work.

I have an account with them but never got to writing the script.

I look at doing it when I have spare time but don’t really have too much anymore :pensive:

Thanks! :slightly_smiling_face:
