I'm using Magento 1.9 and I want to display subtotal in the cart button. I tried with this code

<?php echo Mage::helper('checkout')->formatPrice($this->getSubtotal()) ?>

But it still displays 0.00 in the cart, even after I added a product to cart.

enter image description here

You can access current subtotal wherever you want this way


So, your try should be...

$subtotal = Mage::getSingleton('checkout/session')->getQuote()->getSubtotal();
echo Mage::helper('checkout')->formatPrice($subtotal);
