OverviewBack to top
Currency Formatter extension created by Mageplaza is an informative tool for stores to optimize the price attached to each product.
In the currency format, customers can easily be confused with the price, as there is no worldwide standard for currency format. Specifically, the displayed currencies normally contain details like currency symbol, decimal separator, and thousands separator. This format change from one country to another.
For example, the English speaking countries place the graphic symbol before the value like $10.00. However, it is not the case for European currencies. For France, the graphic image is displayed behind the amount like 10.00€. Similarly to currency symbols, many other countries design different decimal separators for domestic purposes. Thus, these details need to be customized in order to reduce misunderstanding from visitors who live in other nations.
The stores can gain better flexibility to edit all of the aforementioned details, with the help of this module. You can minimize any unwanted misunderstanding in product value for Multinational shoppers. Magento 2 Currency Formatter is a customer experience enhancer for your Magento 2 store sites.

The module is the best tool to assist you to modify formats of certain currencies. The only requirement for this modification is to help the format suit with standards of nations worldwide in order to show the customers precise item prices.
Place A Specific Symbol For The Currency
The symbol which can be called as currency’s name is the crucial component in the format to inform customers price. With this feature, owners can choose to view the currency symbol as abbreviations or signs. For instance, the US dollar can be shown as $ or USD.
Even better, you can choose the position to place the symbol. There are five positions supported by the module which placed around the price value:
- Before value: It is the position which situated before the price value with no additional space - $20.
- Before value with space: It is similarly positioned on the front of the cost but separated with space - $ 20.
- After value: It is the location situated behind the back of the value with no space - 20$.
- After value with space: It will be situated behind the value with space - 20 $.
- None: If you prefer not to show the symbol, it is also possible to disable it.
Edit The Thousands Separators With Ease
The valuable function provides full flexibility to adjust thousands of separator, which helps owners clarify store price value. In detail, a comma is often used by Great Britain and the United States while other countries use a period or a thin space instead.
With these differences, Mageplaza provides you 4 options to divide the group of thousands:
- Space: the separation will be a thin space, e.g: 45 467
- Dot: the thousands group will be separated with a period, e.g: 45.467
- Comma: the thousands group will be separated with a small comma, eg: 45,467
- None: the thousands group will not be separated with any space or symbol
Set The Decimal Separator Sign & Digit
The decimal mark is also needed for further adjustment when comparing with different countries. In the case of the US and UK, they tend to use period. In contrast, other countries apply comma as decimal marks.
With Currency Formatter install in your system, you can change the decimal as dots or commas correctly for each store view.
Also, the admins can set up the number of decimals easily at the backend. The store owners who want to show the price accuracy as much as possible they can add up the specific decimals number in the integer part. For instance, the system will show $15.1 when the decimal number is 1 or it can show 15.11$ then it is set as 2.
