I've displayed item's price (both old price and new price) using this code,

<?php echo $_item->getProduct()->getPrice(); ?>  

But when I see the page, it displays price with 4 decimal numbers, like 150.0000

I need to change number of decimals after the . to be two. like 15.00

How can I do this? I'm okay with however getting formatted number, when $_item->getProduct()->getPrice(); gives 15.0000 I need to change it into 15.00 however way possible.

Can anybody help me?

- NOTE -

I've found php way to format the numbers.

<?php $oldprice = $_item->getProduct()->getPrice();
             echo number_format($oldprice, 2, ".", ","); 

But the problem is, I've to put this everywhere I need to change the format


You can format the Price using the below Code:

public function __construct(
    /* Add below dependencies */
    \Magento\Framework\Pricing\Helper\Data $pricingHelper,
) {
    $this->pricingHelper = $pricingHelper;

/*Call the below function to format amount*/

In template file, you can use the below code:

$pricHelper = $this->helper('\Magento\Framework\Pricing\Helper\Data');
echo $pricHelper->currency($amount,true,false);

  • sorry, im not an expert. where should I put the construct? – Joey Nov 9 '17 at 8:44

You can use this format

Using Object manager :


Using Construct :

public function __construct(
    /* Add below dependencies */
    \Magento\Framework\Pricing\Helper\Data $pricingHelper,
) {
    $this->pricingHelper = $pricingHelper;

/*Call the below function to format amount*/

Note : Do not use object manager directly.

  • I need to set this filter to my whole site, without editing core files, but only inside theme folder. can I do that? if yes, how? – Joey Nov 9 '17 at 9:49
  • I agian told you that from where you display your product price at that place you can set this code instead of your code. If you display your product price from theme then put there. Otherwise, you need to change in all files from where you display. – Rohan Hapani Nov 9 '17 at 10:11

For change Currency formate please change in below files




return $this->formatPrecision($price, 2, $options, $includeContainer, $addBrackets);


public function formatPrice($price, $addBrackets = false) { return $this->formatPricePrecision($price, 2, $addBrackets); }

  • Appreciate the help. Isn't it bad practice to modify core files? either way, I need to acomplish the task without editing core files. I can edit items inside my theme so that's what I'm looking for. Can you help me with that? – Joey Nov 9 '17 at 8:43
  • You can use plugin to do this. Plugin is the best way to change the core behaviour. – MeenakshiSundaram R Nov 12 '17 at 19:29
