Adding Custom Currency to WooCommerce

In this post you will learn how to add another custom currency and a symbol for same in addition to the many available currencies provided by Woocommerce.

 

Example

In the example, the currency “Arrow Design Euro” is added with the symbol “AD€”. To do this, add this code to the functions.php file:

add_filter( 'woocommerce_currencies', 'arrow_design_add_custom_currency' );
function arrow_design_add_custom_currency( $custom_currency) {
$custom_currency['ARROWCURRENCY'] = __( 'Arrow Design Euro', 'woocommerce' );
return $custom_currency;
}
add_filter('woocommerce_currency_symbol', 'arrow_design_add_custom_currency_symbol', 10, 2);
function arrow_design_add_custom_currency_symbol( $custom_currency_symbol, $custom_currency ) {
switch( $custom_currency ) {
case 'ARROWCURRENCY': $custom_currency_symbol = 'AD€'; break;
}
return $custom_currency_symbol;
}

If you go to Woocommerce –> Settings in the backend after saving the code and scroll down to “Currency options”, you will find the added currency under “Currency” at the very end.

Choose this currency and click on “Save changes”. If you now click on the shop page or a product in the frontend, you will see the new currency, after refreshing the page.
