Problems and Solutions

In Magento 2 Default, the position of symbol is fixed in front of the price value. In fact, the position of currency symbols are different based on various countries. Many currencies in the English-speaking world and Latin America place it before the amount like this $20.00 but in many European countries such as France, Germany, Greece, Scandinavian countries, the symbol is usually placed after the amount like this 20.00€. Unfortunately, Magento default fails to change the position of the currency symbols.

Another issue in Magento default is that decimal separator is unchangeable(fixed as dot). However, different countries officially designate different symbols for the decimal separator. Therefore, it is necessary to make clear in this symbol to avoid misunderstanding of customers from different nations.

The minus character always stand in front of value in Magento defaut. However, in some specific cases, store owners would like to display it in other positions.

The number of decimal digits in Magento default is fixed as 0 and 2 depending on currencies. However, many stores demand to display the price as clear as possible to customers by showing more decimal digits

All the problems can be solved well with the support of Currency Formatter. The extension helps store owners can format the appearance of price to become more appropriate and friendly to visitors in different nations.

With Currency Formatter, the format of price becomes friendly, and they will no longer misunderstand between the meaning of comma or dot representing as a decimal separator or a thousands separator.

At each store view for each nation, the format of price is adjusted suitably to nation practice, which shows the profession and good customer care of the store.

Improve all available currencies at store sites

Currency Formatter extension improves performance of all available currencies are used at the store site. All prices with at any currencies will be displayed more clearly to customers and in a friendly way to the currency standards of each nation in the world.

Specify and place symbol of currency

Currency Formatter allows assigning any symbols for the price currencies at store. Store owners can flexibly use signs or abbreviations as currency symbols, for example, $ or USD for the US dollar.

More importantly, there are 5 positions for currency symbol correlated with price value including:

  • Before value: The symbol in front of value without space. E.g, $100
  • Before value with space: The symbol in front of value with space. E.g, $ 100
  • After value: The symbol behind value without space. E.g, 100$
  • After value with space: The symbol behind value with space. E.g, 100 $
  • None: In case you do not want to show the currency symbol

Easy to modify the thousands separator

To make the price value more clear, using the thousands separator is necessary to separate the thousands groups. Depending on the custom of each nation, the sign of separator differs. Likewise, while the U.K. and U.S. use a comma to separate groups of thousands, many other countries use a dot instead, and some countries separate thousands groups with a thin space.

Understanding this difference, Currency Formatter offers 4 types of separators to meet any nations’ numeric format standards including:

  • Space: a thin space between thousands groups, e.g, 12 467
  • Dot: a small dot between thousands groups, e.g, 12.467
  • Comma: a small comma between thousands groups, e.g, 12,467
  • None: no separation between thousands groups, e.g, 12467

Define sign and digit for decimal separator

A decimal separator is a symbol used to separate the integer part from the fractional part of a number written in decimal form. Different countries officially designate different symbols for the decimal separator. With Currency Formatter, the sign of decimal can be set as a comma or a dot flexibly to match with the number standard in each nation.

Besides. the number of decimals can be set up easily at the admin backend. Store owners can display the accuracy levels of price value by adding specific decimal numbers after the integer part. For example, $15.1 for decimal number as 1, $15.11 for decimal number as 2

Multi-positions of the minus sign

In case you would like to display the discount, the minus sign is used. With Currency Formatter offers various options for the position of the minus sign. At the admin backend, you can place the minus sign flexibly:

  • Before Value
  • After Value
  • Before Symbol
  • After Symbol

Thanks for this extension

We are using this extension now for a few months at our new m2 store. It worked from the beginning without problems also through all the Magento 2 releases. As a suggestion, it would be a good feature if your extension would also work with attributes like weight or length. By the way - it was an opener for paid extension(s) from you.

Give it a try

It's suitable for a global store where your cutsomers may come from all over the world and the currency format is different there. It is perfect and on top of that, it's free. Just give it a try and I think you cannot hate it.

More than a good extension

This was my best experience with the Mageplaza. We downloaded the currency formatter extension for Magento 2. After installing it we got some additional requirements from the client and we contacted Mageplaza and they said no problem we will customize it. First I thought they will ask for the extra cost because the extension was free in the first place but Desmond told me that they do not have discrimination among paid and free users and I was shocked by this statement and he customized the extension in just a one day. I would like to thank Desmond and the Mageplaza team. Hope we will get an opportunity to work with you again.
