About the currencylayer API

currencylayer started out in early 2015 as a small internal tool for currency conversion. Today we empower companies and teams of all sizes — from freelance developers to SMBs and Enterprises all around the world.

What is it?

currencylayer provides an easy-to-integrate REST API with real-time and historical exchange rates for 168 world currencies and precious metals, delivered in universally usable and easily parseable JSON format, and compatible with any application.

Who runs it?

The currencylayer API is a product built and maintained by apilayer, the company behind industry-leading SaaS products like invoicely, eversign as well as an ever-growing range of productivity-enhancing API products. Counting over 4 million customers worldwide, our aim is to provide businesses and individuals with the tools they need to automate things that should be automated and focus on building great products instead.

Unique Approach

The online Forex API market is divided into two sections: Inexpensive, but unreliable open-source projects, and overpriced, but well-performing Enterprise-class APIs. At currencylayer we aim to combine the strengths of both into one superior product — delivering highly accurate, reliable and consistent currency exchange rates through a closely monitored API, making it available to small-scale businesses and startups, and conveniently low priced for larger companies.
