Yahoo! Web AnalyticsYahoo! announced of enabling support to all the currencies requested and the conversion rates in Yahoo! Web Analytics.

"In Yahoo! Web Analytics, we have long provided support for customers who do business in multiple currencies. For example, if you are tracking a hotel booking engine with YWA, you can collect revenue amounts in USD, EUR, GBP, HUF etc. but report, for the sake of consistency, in one chosen currency in the YWA User Interface," said Yahoo.

In a blog post Yahoo announced "This Thursday (November 10th), we'll begin supporting all currencies tracked by Yahoo! Finance and we'll update our rates on the first business day of each month."

Note: These changes will apply to data collected from November 10th onwards and will not apply to historical data. The Sales Details report will be unaffected.

Yahoo notes "Above your reports, you will see a new tab, called "Currency Rate". With the upcoming release, this will be displayed to all customers, but in future, we'll display this only when the base currency differs from the reporting currency.

On this tab, you will see a link to the "Currency Rates used in this report". Clicking on this will expand the tab to display the relevant currency rates applying to the reporting period chosen."
