I tried using this function


And it is always returning an null value. This is on all general store settings. Is there a way to retrive store website phone number? Use case display store phone number in checkout.

The store config values STORES > Configuration are stored in core_config_data table

enter image description here

There are 5 columns, however, we should focus on 4 columns:

+scope: The scope to use to determine config value, e.g., store or default. We have some scopes:



interface ScopeInterface
     * Scope types
    const SCOPE_STORES = 'stores';

    const SCOPE_WEBSITES = 'websites';

    const SCOPE_STORE   = 'store';
    const SCOPE_GROUP   = 'group';
    const SCOPE_WEBSITE = 'website';

+scope_id they are store ids. We can find these values in store table.

+path: The path through the tree of configuration values, e.g., general/store_information/name. When developing a module, we declare these values in etc/adminhtml/system.xml

+value: config values.

So, when we want to get the config values, we need to know scope, scope_id and path. Magento had a method to retrieve config value by path, scope and scope code (store id):



public function getValue(
    $scopeType = ScopeConfigInterface::SCOPE_TYPE_DEFAULT, 
    $scopeCode = null

In your case, you want to get the phone value with websites scope and path general/store_information/phone. We should start to debug with a raw sql to check the available phone numbers:

SELECT * FROM core_config_data a WHERE a.`path` LIKE '%general/store_information/phone%'

enter image description here

After executing this query, we make ensure that the phone number is available or not in our scope: \Magento\Store\Model\ScopeInterface::SCOPE_WEBSITES. If not available in our scope, we should set in admin config.

SCOPE_WEBSITES correlates with scope id (store id), so we need to set scope id (store id) for getValue() method. For example:

    //Getting current store id
     * @var \Magento\Store\Model\StoreManagerInterface $storeManager
    $scopeCode = $this->storeManager->getStore()->getStoreId()


Inject ScopeConfigInterface and StoreManagerInterface following way:

 * @var \Magento\Store\Model\StoreManagerInterface
protected $storeManager;

 * @var \Magento\Framework\App\Config\ScopeConfigInterface
protected $scopeConfig;

public function __construct(
    \Magento\Store\Model\StoreManagerInterface $storeManager,
    \Magento\Framework\App\Config\ScopeConfigInterface $scopeConfig
) {
    $this->storeManager = $storeManager;
    $this->scopeConfig = $scopeConfig;

Now write following line for output:

$this->scopeConfig->getValue('general/store_information/phone', \Magento\Store\Model\ScopeInterface::SCOPE_STORE, $this->storeManager->getStore()->getStoreId());

Extra info:

For future reference: This works but if you are extending \Magento\Framework\View\Element\Template don't forget to make the constructor like the parent class.

public function __construct( \Magento\Framework\View\Element\Template\Context $context, \Magento\Store\Model\StoreManagerInterface $storeManager, \Magento\Framework\App\Config\ScopeConfigInterface $scopeConfig, array $data = [] ) { parent::__construct($context, $data); $this->storeManager = $storeManager; $this->scopeConfig = $scopeConfig; }

And if you accessing it in phtml make the variables public instead of private.
