The script is US$5.00 including comments to help you with
configuration, little flag images for just about any currency and an
example layout web page that can easily be modified to include your own
name and style.
There are dozens of free currency converters available on the
www, so why bother? Well, I used to have a currency converter popup provided
by a bank on my websites but I got fed up with it because:
It often took a long time to load.
When the bank's website was busy or offline my pages
wouldn't load at all. We all know that site visitors just won't wait
for slow loading pages, they click off to another website so you lose
a potential sale.
The bank covered all kinds of obscure currencies that none of my
visitors ever used, making the script bigger, slower and more
confusing. I mean, how many of your customers use Mongolian Tögrögs or Mauritanian Ouguiyas?
So I decided to write my own script featuring only the currencies that my customers use, update the exchange rates myself
about once a week, and run it as a little popup on my own server. If you used SmallChange on a website before coming here, or
if you clicked the link above you will have seen how it looks. Neat, eh?
It doesn't have to be a popup, you can run it as a normal page
and link it on your menu or by buttons on your pages. You can run it as an 'overlib'
activated by a button or hover link so it will always load, even when the visitor is running a popup blocker.
You can have as many or as few currencies as you like. All you have
to do is add more table cells and add the exchange rates to a list in
You can run it with little flags or country names or currency names
or any combination of them.

Notes on using the script
You need to know how to construct a table on a web page using HTML, FrontPage, Dreamweaver, Web Fusion or some other web design program, and you need
to be happy about using the included instructions to change the
rates in the script.
Configuration and Installation Service
This is a pretty straightforward and inexpensive script, so there is no
free support available. If
your script goes wrong you should reload the original and start over. If
that doesn't work out and you still want SmallChange on your website, I
will do the modifications for you and help you install it to your
web space for a nominal fee of US$25.00 to cover my time. If you want to run it as an overlib but don't know how to configure
it I will do the conversion for you, same price.
