as far as I understand this the price is rendered in:


But as I change it, it gets, of course, changed for every part of the site (like category view).

How can I change how my price is displayed in my product view? If I for example want to add labels for price incl. tax and excl. tax, tax amount, etc..?

In catalog_product_view.xml there is a block (product.price.render.default) which is responsible for price rendering.

That block you can find in below paths:

  1. /vendor/magento/module-catalog/view/adminhtml/layout/CATALOG_PRODUCT_COMPOSITE_CONFIGURE.xml
  2. /vendor/magento/module-catalog/view/base/layout/default.xml

which is this:

<block class="Magento\Framework\Pricing\Render" name="product.price.render.default">
            <argument name="price_render_handle" xsi:type="string">catalog_product_prices</argument>
            <argument name="use_link_for_as_low_as" xsi:type="boolean">true</argument>
            <!-- set "override" configuration settings here -->

You can copy this block to catalog_product_view.xml inside body tag and change this

<argument name="price_render_handle" xsi:type="string">catalog_product_prices</argument>

to this

<argument name="price_render_handle" xsi:type="string">custom_catalog_product_prices</argument>.

Then create a new xml layout file with name custom_catalog_product_prices.xml and copy content from file /vendor/magento/module-catalog/view/base/layout/catalog_product_prices.xml.

After copy content you can see there is so many template set in this xml layout now you can modify templates according to you in custom_catalog_product_prices.xml file.

  • This does not seem to work, although I am unsure how i should add the template. Just like template="Module_Vendor::product/price/amount/custom.phtml" ?

    Agree with medmek's comment. Simply adding override files with the same names, into you own theme will do the trick. In my case, I wanted to change the order of the special and regular price blocks (without css, if possible) and change the 'Regular Price' label to 'Retail Price Was'. To do this, I copied the 'vendor/magento/module-catalog/view/base/templates/product/price/final_price.phtml' to my theme, made the text and layout order updates I needed and voila, it works.

I've run into this problem several times. The client often wants a different price display based on where the customer is viewing a product. Category page vs product detail page would be one example.

My solution is to override vendor/magento/module-catalog/view/base/templates/product/price/amount/default.phtml and place it in your own theme folder.

From there you can use block methods to retrieve the current layout handle using $block->getRequest()->getFullActionName() that will return a value based on the page you are viewing

  • catalog_product_view (Product Detail Page)
  • catalog_category_view (Category Listing)
  • Just echo the handle for any other pages with prices to find others

You can then use the layout handle in an if statement and change display of the price based on layout handle

$handle = $block->getRequest()->getFullActionName();
if($handle == 'catalog_product_view') {
    //Product price display
} else {
    //Default price display
