Greetings everyone!


Hope you are all well.  I have a problem which I would like assistance with.  Does anyone know the answer?




I am currently in the process of wanting to create a metals website using Opencart.   The problem I have is that the price of the metals changes.  For example. gold at 12:00 noon may not not be the same price as gold at 3:00 PM.


Someone comes to the website and wants to buy but by the time they arrive, browse and then decide what they want the price updates before they proceed to the checkout.


My question:


How is it done?


Is it a script. API, plugin?   It can be done because this is how the other sites do it.  I have asked in the opencart forums but they are so far blank.


Can anyone please elighten me? 


Thank you


Jake Shiraz

I'm not familiar with Opencart or metals pricing but this could be done by querying an API from a service like this one:

http://www.xignite.com/product/gold-metal. Looks like you'd need a subscription to use their service.
