I've been looking through guides and other questions, but I simply can't get the finalPrice formatted as I want. I would like to display the price with the chosen currency first and then the price with two decimals, e.g. as;


Im retreiving the price with the following line;

echo $product->getFinalPrice();

This simply displays on the front-end as;


I've also tried using the following line;

echo $formattedPrice = Mage::helper('core')->currency($finalPrice, true, false);

This gives me the right formatting, but doesn't retreive the actual price of the product. It display as;


The one gets the actual price and the other formats it the way I want, so I guess I have to combine these in some way?

    have you tried echo $formattedPrice = Mage::helper('core')->currency($product->getFinalPrice(), true, false);

This line is the correct answer:

echo $formattedPrice = Mage::helper('core')->currency($finalPrice, true, false);

However, you're getting a value of €0.00 because the $finalPrice variable isn't set to anything. This should resolve that issue:

$finalPrice = $product->getFinalPrice();
echo $formattedPrice = Mage::helper('core')->currency($finalPrice, true, false);

Or, you can combine both into a single line, like @Marius suggested:

echo $formattedPrice = Mage::helper('core')->currency($product->getFinalPrice(), true, false);
  • You can also use Mage::helper('core')->formatCurrency($_finalPrice, false); Commented Nov 2, 2017 at 23:20
