XE.com connector

What is XE.com?

XE.com is an online foreign exchange application that offers exchange rate information, international money transfers, and other currency-related services via its website, mobile apps, and other online channels.

About Kissflow's XE.com integration

Kissflow's XE.com connector lets you use XE.com's instant currency exchange rate converter services with popular Kissflow services and other cloud applications. To integrate with XE.com, you must have a valid XE.com account account as well as be a paid Kissflow customer.

Consider you have a Kissflow process workflow for managing your purchase order system and the vendor catalog prices are in EUR. Since your vendor is in the USA, youโ€™d like to convert the currency value from EUR to USD before raising a purchase order. For this to happen, the currency conversion should happen based on real-time exchange rates. The XE.com connector makes this conversion happen. You can set up triggers and actions so that when a new item is submitted in your purchase order, it pulls the actual price of the products from the vendor catalog and converts the product's value to a currency of your choice.

  2. After a successful configuration, test whether your XE.com action step is set up correctly by clicking the Test button. The connector will pull field data from your selected XE.com account and display it as a JSON output. Similar to the trigger step, errors are notified to you right away. Fix them before retesting the action step.
