I am trying to find a WP plugin, code, etc that allows me to set a base price (in USD) for items on my website, then the price (in bitcoins) automatically changes daily/hourly with respect to the current bitcoin price.

For instance, I post a golf club that is $100 USD. In bitcoins currently this would sell for $100/$5.099 current gox price in USD = 19.61 BTC. So if the price of btc jumps to $10 or god forbid $2 again..the price of my items automatically adjust. I will have literally hundreds of different items on my site soon and it would be way too much work to adjust the price daily for each one.

I have implemented this for the WP eCommerce plugin already...talked to the developer. Perhaps someone could update it to include this feature. The creator does not have time. http://www.nostate.com/3971/bitcoin-for-wp-e-commerce-shopping-cart-for-wordpress/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed:+nostatecom+%28nostate.com%29 He stated that he was hoping someone would "update the plugin, get paid, and fork theproject on github. Assuming you tell me that the new version works, I'll merge the changes or make that developer a maintainer."

Also was thinking that perhaps the eCommerce plugin itself could be rewritten slightly where pricing is determined. All that I can do now is enter a set price in a field manually for each item/product.

I will pay for a successful update, plugin, code, etc that works, as well as probably every other WP merchant who wants to accept bitcoins at their site. This feature is critical.

ALSO: This page may help you...doesn't help me. I have no coding knowledge. https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=64650.0

My CheaperInBitcoins library will have functions to update the btc<>usd prices. If someone knew word press enough all theyd have to do is just change the line of code from the wp ecommerce plugin that queries for prices. It would beat having to mess with the wp plugin too much and breaking it(maybe its easier then im thinking idk i dont use wordpress that much).

Or you could also use my library as an ecommernce cms on its own right. The library is operational. Im still adding features and helpfull bitcoin merchant managing functions. Should be finished within 5days. Here is the link.

Now that i think about it all you need is a cronjob that would update prices but then youd need to display the calcualted value instead of the quried value.... Drat another thing i dunno how to do on wordpress
