Is there a native way to do this? Or must I use an add-on like: http://devot-ee.com/add-ons/price-format?

  • I usually use the addon you mentioned along with the Dollars addon to try and reduce the likelihood of admins entering price data in an unexpected format. Otherwise, yeah BR & Store do this stuff for you. – Andy Homan Jan 31 '13 at 6:05
  • Thanks for the suggestion about the Dollars FT. I think I might use it. I don't think it handles this format, though: $1 350,50 (e.g. French format), but it's better than using the text FT. – ExpressionEngineNewbie Feb 1 '13 at 8:15

There's no native EE way to do it.

If you're using an e-commerce add-on like Store there are built in methods to format currency.

Otherwise, that add-on looks like it will do exactly what you need.

  • what do you do with the file once you've downloaded it? The add-on isn't very descriptive. (pi.price_format.php) – Niall Thompson Feb 16 '13 at 21:36
  • Upload to system/expressionengine/third_party/price_format/pi.price_format.php on your server, then it will be already installed. It's the same process for all plugins which is probably why there aren't any instructions. – Adrian Macneil Feb 17 '13 at 3:30
