How do I convert prices to local currency?

When I visit eBay using a web broser and browse items, eBay automatically converts the price to my local currency (Swedish SEK). How do I convert, for instance, the currently highest bid + shipping to SEK using the eBay API?

Hmm... not sure about that. With the Finding API, normally you'd specify a GlobalID from [this list][1], and most pricing data would be returned converted, but I don't see Sweden on there. [1]: http://developer.ebay.com/DevZone/finding/CallRef/Enums/GlobalIdList.html

As a workaround, EU publishes daily conversion rates via a data feed that you can use to calculate prices yourself. The data is in CSV/XML/RSS vs the EUR. 1 EUR = 1.2239 USD = 9.834 SEK SEK->USD: Price/SEK * USD USD->SEK: Price/USD * SEK USD->EUR: Price/USD EUR->USD: Price*USD See the Downloads section, Current reference rates. http://www.ecb.europa.eu/stats/policy_and_exchange_rates/euro_reference_exchange_rates/html/index.en.html
