San Jose, Costa Rica (PRWEB) December 26, 2009
Forex-rates.biz, a free forex chart and alert services website operated by the Costa Rica-based online marketing company known as Phoenix Media, has recently developed a currency conversion widget, which is being offered free of charge to all webmasters for use on their respective sites. The ticker can be customized by webmasters to suit their needs, according to their site's style and format. It offers up to the minute exchange rate and currency conversion information, and is easily implemented. Webmasters only need to drop a few lines of code into their webpage layout, making the widget active on a page in minutes.
Unlike competing currency converter tools available on the web, however, forex-rates.biz's tool does not require visitors to be redirected to another site to see the results of their query. This keeps visitors on the website, so site traffic leakage is automatically reduced.
When asked why now, and what makes the forex-rates.biz tool different from other such tools, site representative Rick Bowen stated: "It's simple. We expect webmasters to take advantage of this tool like we take advantage of the tool on our own network of sites. Of course, as webmasters ourselves we understand the importance of visitors staying on the site and not being redirected away. Site visitors are our online currency and we wouldn't expect anyone to use our tool if it was going to lose them money.
"Our free currency exchange tool will be especially useful on sites that discuss world affairs, travel, flights, accommodations, and the forex market. Merchants that accept only one currency but target consumer audiences that may use other currencies will also find the tool useful, as it will allow shoppers to learn the approximate cost of a particular item in their home country's currency, making for a simpler and more comfortable shopping experience."
The free forex rates tool is available for webmasters to download and add to their website by visiting http://www.forex-rates.biz/cet.htm
In addition to the currency converter widget, forex-rates.biz also has a forex ticker which provides the latest exchange rates for the most traded currencies. The forex ticker can also be downloaded for webmasters to use on their sites.
Mr. Bowen said the following about Phoenix Media's involvement in the forex niche:
"The future of the forex market is exceedingly bright as our world is forever becoming smaller and within easier reach of more and more people for travel, as well as for buying and trading online. An understanding of the local currency is vital to success when researching and visiting far off places. Forex-rates.biz plans to stay ahead of the curve by providing the best free information available on the web when it comes to foreign exchange."
