What is Curculator?
They say the best products are made when people create something to solve their own problems. We have actually created Curculator for ourselves. Working with money and currencies every day, it was always the same boring routine - open the classic calculator software, add some numbers, then go to bank's web page, get rates, go back, multiply, divide, and then all over again. You know it already.
We have been looking for this kind of web software for a long time but there was nothing out there. Millions of people every day having the same problem, and still no solution. And yet it was so simple - putting the calculator and currency converter in one place. The only solution was to create it. Luckily, we are a web company so we knew how to do it.
How to use Curculator?
The interface speaks for itself. On the left side there is a standard calculator, on the right - a currency converter. Select the "from" and "to" currencies and start calculating. You have 12 most used currencies at start, click the "more currencies" button if you want to see them all. That's it!
The Curculator also works with keyboard. We recommend using the numeric keyboard as the easiest method. If the keyboard input is not working, click anywhere on the calculator surface to give it back focus.
Are the rates "buy" or "sell" rates?
Rates are mid-market. It means they are calculated as the average between buy and sell rates. This is the most accurate method since the buy and sell rates are much more different from bank to bank, but the medium value is pretty much stable.
Where do the rates come from?
Every bank has its own rates which may slightly differ. We get rates from various trusted sources and try our best to make them as accurate as possible. Still, the rates at your local bank may be different.
No web site on the Internet can give you the exact rate as your local bank. In most cases this difference is minor, and applicable for everyday transactions. However, we must warn you to double-check rates before committing any transaction. This is especially important for large amounts.
Is it possible to have a custom bank as a source of rates?
Yes. This is actually something we have in offer as a premium (paid) service. You can have any bank (or other financial institution) in the world as the source of rates. This is a great solution for companies where people work with currencies every day and need precise currency rates. Time is the most important asset of your employees, and by using Curculator you will save it in huge amounts. More info about that on the premium account page.
