jsonrates + currencylayer

After weeks of negotiations and meetings we can finally call it official - apilayer Ltd. has agreed to acquire the jsonrates API and merge it with their existing product - the currencylayer API.

This enables us to offer you an even more powerful - and still, free - currency conversion API packed with a full stack of new features, more reliable data sources and a significantly more consistent service and user interface.

As of now, the previous jsonrates API shall be deprecated but will still be available for use until June 30th 11:59:59 PM London time.

In order to avoid any service disruptions and keep your applications running, we highly recommend signing up for a new & free API Key as soon as possible and adjusting your back-end code to fit the currencylayer API query & response structure.

Please also note that any API documentation and usage guides on this website are no longer valid and do not work with the new currencylayer API.
