Show Currency (CAD / AUD / USD) on product page

51 0 9

I have a currency selector so the user can change between currencies, the problem is: From experience AUD / CAD / NZL users often get confused because products display prices as $XX and it's not clear whether it's canadian or usd.


So, how do I display the abbreviated currency code on the product price? CAD / USD etc


Hi Paul. Walter here from microDev (Shopify Partner).


This is a great point and one that Shopify has actually made really easy to resolve! What you want to do is format your prices using a money filter to add the currently 3 letter code to the product pricing. To do this, you need need to add the filter “ | money_with_currency” to your product price liquid tags in your ‘product-template.liquid” file (and anywhere else you may need it). 


It should look like this when you done:

{{ product.price | money_with_currency }}

However, this could differ slightly depending on your theme.
