Currency Fieldtype

Currency Fieldtype Main Screenshot

Handle more than 20 of the world's most traded currencies with ease by utilizing an input mask. This field type makes sure you always got the right format.

Currency Fieldtype is a Statamic addon that lets you handle any currency with ease by utilizing an input mask. Well, not any, but many at least. 25 of the world's most traded ones to be precise. See which currencies we currently support.


The addon makes sure you always get the right format depending on the locale and currency that's being used. While you can safely ignore the addon when using it, it still provides useful information in the background in case you need it. Here's the information you'll get:

  • the value as a float (1234.56)
  • the value as a formatted string ('$1,234.56')
  • the value as a formatted string without the symbol ('1,234.56')
  • the ISO code for the selected currency ('USD')
  • the numeric code for the selected currency ('840')
  • the symbol for the selected currency ('$')
  • whether the symbol is appended or prepended to the number (true/false)
  • the group separator (for '$1,234.56' the group separator would be ,)
  • the radix point (for '$1,234.56' the radix point would be .)
  • the number of decimal digits (for '$1,234.56' the number of digits would be 2)
  • whether the value is stored in sub-units (true/false)
  • the sub-unit-factor for the selected currency (100)

Input Mask

The fieldtype implements a mask on the input field for each individual currency which provides a very smooth experience when handling financial data or currencies.

How to Install

You can search for this addon in the Tools > Addons section of the Statamic control panel and click install, or run the following command from your project root:

composer require doefom/currency-fieldtype

How to Use

Field Configuration

You can add the fieldtype to your blueprints like you would any other fieldtype that is already part of Statamic. For configuration, you simply need to select which currency you would like to use, and you're good to go. In addition, you can enable sub-unit storage for the field's value.

Configuration Option Description Default
Currency The currency you want to use for the field. 'USD'
Sub-Units Store value in the currency's smallest sub-unit. false
Default Value Set a default value. null

Usage in Antlers Templates

To give you all the flexibility and information you need the fieldtype supports augmentation so many more values are available than just the plain value. Let's say we have a blueprint that uses the currency fieldtype with the field handle price. After saving a value to an entry, this is what your data would look like:

price: 1234.56

When using the field in an Antlers template, you have access to the following information:

{{ price:value }}                => 1234.56
{{ price:formatted }}            => '$1,234.56'
{{ price:formatted_no_symbol }}  => '1,234.56'
{{ price:iso }}                  => 'USD'
{{ price:numeric_code }}         => '840'
{{ price:symbol }}               => '$'
{{ price:append }}               => false
{{ price:group_separator }}      => ','
{{ price:radix_point }}          => '.'
{{ price:digits }}               => 2
{{ price:store_sub_units }}      => false
{{ price:sub_unit_factor }}      => 100

The same is true when using the Statamic API or in any other situation where the retrieved data is augmented. When using sub-unit value storage, the formatted values will be in the primary unit, while value is returned directly, in sub-units. In the example above, with sub-unit storage enabled, the first three values would consist of the following:

{{ price:value }}                => 123456
{{ price:formatted }}            => '$1,234.56'
{{ price:formatted_no_symbol }}  => '1,234.56'


Changing the currency fieldtype's configuration after using it

If you've configured your currency fieldtype to use a specific currency, then save a bunch of entries with it and then change its configuration, in most cases this won't cause any problems. The data will just be converted to the newly configured currency. However, some currency conversion might cause issues and this is especially the case, when the currency you convert into has fewer decimal digits than the one you started with.

For example: Let's say we have an entry with a price (the field uses the Currency Fieldtype) of 1234.56. In USD (US Dollar) this will be displayed as $1,234.56. If you then convert to JPY (Japanese Yen) which has 0 decimal digits, you'll get a wrong result of ¥1,235. That's just something to keep in mind in case you'd need to reconfigure the field.

Exchange rates

If you change the currency in the field configuration we just use another format, that's it. We do not convert any currency into another.
