How to Customise your Shopify Store - Currency Format

Customising the currency format on your Shopify store is crucial for providing a seamless shopping experience for your customers, especially if you cater to an international audience. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to do it:

How to Customise Your Shopify Store's Currency Format

Step 1: Access Your Shopify Admin

  1. Log in to your Shopify account.
  2. Once logged in, you’ll be directed to your Shopify admin dashboard.

Step 2: Navigate to the General Settings

  1. From the Shopify admin dashboard, go to "Settings" located at the bottom left corner of the page.
  2. Click on "General" to access your store's general settings.

Step 3: Set Your Store Currency

  1. In the "Store currency" section, you will see the current currency your store uses.
  2. If you need to change the store currency, click on the "Change formatting" link next to the currency.

Step 4: Customise the Currency Format

  1. You will see options to customise the display formats for different types of prices:
    • HTML with currency: This format is used for displaying prices on your store (e.g., product pages, collections).
    • HTML without currency: This format is used when the currency symbol is not required.
    • Email with currency: This format is used for displaying prices in customer emails.
    • Email without currency: This format is used in emails where the currency symbol is not needed.
  2. Adjust the formats as needed. The format uses placeholders to represent different parts of the price:
    • {{ amount }}: Represents the price without a currency symbol.
    • {{ amount_no_decimals }}: Represents the price without decimals.
    • {{ amount_with_comma_separator }}: Represents the price with a comma as the decimal separator (common in European countries).
    • {{ currency }}: Represents the currency symbol.

Step 5: Examples of Custom Formats

  1. British Pound (£) with Two Decimals:
    • HTML with currency: £{{ amount }}
    • HTML without currency: {{ amount }}
    • Email with currency: £{{ amount }}
    • Email without currency: {{ amount }}
  2. US Dollar ($) without Decimals:
    • HTML with currency: $ {{ amount_no_decimals }}
    • HTML without currency: {{ amount_no_decimals }}

  3. Euro (€) with Comma Separator:
    • HTML with currency: €{{ amount_with_comma_separator }}
    • HTML without currency: {{ amount_with_comma_separator }}

  2. Your store will now display prices in the customised format.

Step 7: Test the New Format

  2. Check different pages (e.g., product pages, collection pages, checkout) to ensure consistency.


Customising the currency format on your Shopify store is essential for creating a clear and professional shopping experience for your customers. By following these steps, you can ensure that your store’s prices are displayed in a way that aligns with your brand’s requirements and caters to your target audience.
