To initiate the transaction, run this command to install the SDK:

pip install cloudmersive-validate-api-client

Next, you will be instancing the API and calling the function with the following code:

from __future__ import print_function
import time
import cloudmersive_validate_api_client
from cloudmersive_validate_api_client.rest import ApiException
from pprint import pprint

Once complete, you will have the necessary information to simplify your international monetary transactions. Interested in other currency-related APIs? Check out the Cloudmersive website to retrieve your free API key and gain access to 800 monthly calls across our library of APIs.
