A. Types of currency formatting

In total, there are two types of currency formatting used in different parts of your online store including:

HTML without currency: used on online store and ShopBase admin.
Email without currency: used in notification form and order printing.

B. Currency formatting options

There are a number of ways you can display the prices on your store:

Format in which price cannot be rounded

{{amount}} : E.g.: 1,135.99
{{amount_with_comma_separator}} : E.g.: 1.135,99
{{amount_with_apostrophe_separator}} : E.g.: 1'135.99

Format in which price can be rounded

{{amount_no_decimals}} : E.g.: 1, 135
{{amount_no_decimals_with_comma_separator}} : E.g.: 1.135

The price will be rounded up if the decimal number is greater than or equal to 50, or rounded down if it is below 50.
Currency format is rounded to 2 decimal places. Regardless of which currency format you chose, payment at your store's checkout will always show decimals.

C. Change currency formatting

Step by Step Tutorial

From your ShopBase admin site, go to Settings > General.


In the Store currency section, click Change formatting.


In each of the fields, replace the current currency format, such as {{ amount }}, with a new one that you want to use as listed in section B.


Click Save

Stores that have received real orders are no longer able to change their currency format.
