WooCommerce Price Formats

Overview #

Number formatting for numeric values is done very differently around the world. For example, in the United States, Two thousand Twenty-Two Point Five Seven will be accepted as 2,022.57. But if you ask the people of Germany, the same number should be written as 2.022,57.

As different countries follow different number formats, your eCommerce store must display product prices in a manner your customers could understand. If you will not do so, there will be unnecessary confusion among buyers, which can even push the buyers towards avoiding purchasing and abandoning the cart.

So, for sellers who have a customer base in various regions with diverse number formats, it becomes essential to activate the WooCommerce Price Formats module with their Booster setup. 

Price Formats as per the Currencies in your Store

With this module, You can specify the details about multiple number formats and map these details with the currencies in your shop. From the position of the thousand’s separator to the position of decimal’s separator, and currency sign, the WooCommerce Price formats module will let you specify it all for each of your store currencies.

You can also specify the number of decimals and trim zeros from the end from product prices. 

There is no bound on the number of currencies you may specify the price format for. 

Price Formats as per WPML Language Codes

If you want to specify price formats for each WPML language code rather than for currencies, it is totally possible with the Price formats module of the Booster plugin. So, if you are selling in countries like India (which has multiple number formats for its different regions) and Korea (which has multiple number formats being followed), you will not face any difficulties in serving your customers right.
