Manually. Every shop has its own process for advertising their rates, often in the form of a printout attached to the window. Some shops may change their rates 2-3 times per day, and we try our best to reflect these changes.
We track many variables including fees, advertised exchange rates and total quoted prices and have built a REST API for easy querying, with plans to open source the entire dataset. We'd love to hear from you if you'd like to use it.
