We wish to build a system to convert currency and then enable the sale of that currency online - before considering a more bespoke option we wish to look at the open source options available.
I’ll try and explain the process flow of the transaction:
1. Say I want to change £200 into USD (so I guess USD would be a product with the correct £ to $ rate).
2. I would need Magento to tell me how many $ I can get for £200 (to the nearest $ but calculate no more than £200)
3. I would then buy that amount at the correct £ value and magento would handle the account/order/payment process.
Is this possible?
Notes: It will always be £ to CURRENCY never CURRENCY to £ or CURRENCY to CURRENCY.
Alternatively, we already have the code that does the currency conversion based on our system - is it possible to pass a purchase value to Magento and have it deal with the rest?
Is it going to be easier to pass the final price from our convertor to a payment provider and deal with the account management part bespokely?
Hope you can help, and please let me know if you need me to explain further.
