I am currently trying to get the Subtotal value with Magento 1.9.1.

Here is my code:


    class AG_Fee_Model_Fee extends Varien_Object{

        public static function getFee(){

        $subtotal = Mage::helper('checkout')->formatPrice($this->getSubtotal());

            $feeAmt = $subtotal;

            return $feeAmt;


        public static function canApply($address){

            $setFee = Mage::getStoreConfig('checkout/fee/active');



                return true;




I am calling the subtotal like this: $subtotal = Mage::helper('checkout')->formatPrice($this->getSubtotal()); But it's giving me no result...

Where is the problem?

I'll be so gratefull to you if you can help me!

Thanks in advance!

  • unless you have set the subtotal for $this the getSubtotal() call would not return anything. The reason it doesn't error out is you have extended from Varien_Object which has magic getters. – Kristof at Fooman Jul 16 '14 at 6:33
  • I haven't set it. How i can make it? Thank you so much! – Venelin Jul 16 '14 at 12:41
  • The approach Marius posted should work. You might have to post more of what, when and how you are executing your code. – Kristof at Fooman Jul 17 '14 at 2:52
$quote = Mage::getSingleton('checkout/session')->getQuote();
$subtotal = $quote->getSubtotal();

    @MageLerner. I wrote this 4.5 years ago. I have no idea. Maybe something changed in the newer version. Maybe I was just simply wrong. Use what works for you. – Marius Jan 10 '19 at 15:09

Try this:

$totals = Mage::getSingleton('checkout/session')->getQuote()->getTotals(); //Total object
$subtotal = round($totals["subtotal"]->getValue()); //Subtotal value
