simpleCart(js) has a number of currencies that are already supported out of the box. You can specify the currency a number of ways, such as setting the option:

    currency: "GBP" // set the currency to pounds sterling

You can also set the currency using the .currency() function:

simpleCart.currency( "EUR" ); // set the currency to Euros

The built-in currencies are listed below, but you can also set a new currency using the .currency() function:

    code: "BTC" ,
    name: "Bitcoin" ,
    symbol: "BTC" 

There are a number of formatting options when setting a currency as well. For example, if you wanted your currency to be formatted as 123 456,780 $AWE instead of $123,456.78, you would use:

    code: "MAC" ,
    name: "My Awesome Currency" ,
    symbol: " $AWE" ,
    delimiter: " " , 
    decimal: "," , 
    after: true ,
    accuracy: 3

If you would like to see what the currency is currently set to, you can call the .currency() function with no arguments:


simpleCart.currency();  // returns { code:"USD", symbol:"$", name:"US Dollar" } 

Built-in currencies:

"USD": { code:"USD", symbol:"$", name:"US Dollar" } , 
"AUD": { code:"AUD", symbol:"$", name:"Australian Dollar" } , 
"BRL": { code:"BRL", symbol:"$", name:"Brazilian Real" } , 
"CAD": { code:"CAD", symbol:"$", name:"Canadian Dollar" } , 
"CZK": { code:"CZK", symbol:" Kč", name:"Czech Koruna", after: true } , 
"DKK": { code:"DKK", symbol:"DKK ", name:"Danish Krone" } , 
"EUR": { code:"EUR", symbol:"€", name:"Euro" } , 
"HKD": { code:"HKD", symbol:"$", name:"Hong Kong Dollar" } ,
"HUF": { code:"HUF", symbol:"Ft", name:"Hungarian Forint" } ,
"ILS": { code:"ILS", symbol:"₪", name:"Israeli New Sheqel" } ,
"JPY": { code:"JPY", symbol:"¥", name:"Japanese Yen" } ,
"MXN": { code:"MXN", symbol:"$", name:"Mexican Peso" } ,
"NOK": { code:"NOK", symbol:"NOK ", name:"Norwegian Krone" } ,
"NZD": { code:"NZD", symbol:"$", name:"New Zealand Dollar" } ,
"PLN": { code:"PLN", symbol:"PLN ", name:"Polish Zloty" } ,
"GBP": { code:"GBP", symbol:"£", name:"Pound Sterling" } ,
"SGD": { code:"SGD", symbol:"$", name:"Singapore Dollar" } ,
"SEK": { code:"SEK", symbol:"SEK ", name:"Swedish Krona" } ,
"CHF": { code:"CHF", symbol:"CHF ", name:"Swiss Franc" } ,
"THB": { code:"THB", symbol:"฿", name:"Thai Baht" } ,
"BTC": { code:"BTC", symbol:" BTC", name:"Bitcoin", accuracy: 4, after: true  }

    I don’t like the formatting of prices. I know that you use $0.00 in US, but here in Finland and Europe, we prefer 0.00€, and I’m wondering how would I do this.
