Thank you for contacting us. Please, my sincere apologies for the delay in answering.

This looks like there has been a change in the service. Our development team is aware of this.

According to the readme (hidden link):

>>> Fixer is still free! Although we now offer a set of premium plans for more advanced users, the basic API features (e.g. getting the latest and historical exchange rates) remain completely free of charge. Minor limitations include our new 1000 requests/month limit and EUR being the only available base currency for customers using a free account. If you need more than 1000 requests per month or want to use all 170 available base currencies, you’ll need to choose one of the paid plans starting at only $10 per month.

That is, this should work only if the base currency of your site is Euro. Please note that as this is an external service, we have no control over this service. You can still try to use the "Currency Layer" service.

Please, let me know if I can help with any other questions you may have. I'll be happy to help.

Thank you.
