Problems and Solutions
The demands for the improvement in currency format in Magento stores
blockNo other choice for the position of currency symbol
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.
remove_circle_outlineUnable to change the decimal separator
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.

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
