Money module: reference information

Edit on GitHub

Handling monetary values can be a problem and is often quite hard. The Money bundle makes it easier to work with monetary values.

Spryker handles all monetary values as integers and provides conversions from decimal values to cent values and vice versa.

The key feature of this module is to convert a MoneyTransfer into the proper string version of it, given the current locale and currency.


The Money module is very straight forward and easy to use. MoneyFacade exposes the following methods:

  • MoneyFacade::fromInteger()
  • MoneyFacade::fromFloat()
  • MoneyFacade::fromString()
  • MoneyFacade::formatWithCurrency()
  • MoneyFacade::formatWithoutCurrency()
  • MoneyFacade::convertIntegerToDecimal()
  • MoneyFacade::convertDecimalToInteger()

MoneyFacade::from*() methods

Internally, a powerful implementation of the Money Pattern is used. Outside the Money module, you only see the MoneyTransfer, which encapsulates our internals.

To get a money object, call the MoneyFacade::from*() methods:

MoneyFacade::fromInteger(1000) integer
MoneyFacade::fromInteger(1000, ‘EUR’) integer and currency
MoneyFacade::fromFloat(10.00) float
MoneyFacade::fromFloat(10.00, ‘EUR’) float and currency
MoneyFacade::fromString(‘1000’) string
MoneyFacade::fromString(‘1000’, ‘EUR’) string and currency

All of them return a MoneyTransfer with a MoneyTransfer::$amount of ‘1000’.

The only difference between them is MoneyTransfer::$currency. This value differs if you pass a currency to the MoneyFacade::from*() methods or not.

  • In case you don’t pass a currency, the currency configured as default one is used.
  • If you pass a specific currency, it is used instead of the one that’s configured as default one.

MoneyFacade::formatWithSymbol() MoneyFacade::formatWithSymbol() method accepts only one argument—a MoneyTransfer. It will return a string representation of the given object, considering the current locale.


MoneyTransfer::$amount = 1000
MoneyTransfer::$currency = ‘EUR’
Current locale is de_DE
The output would be 10,00 €
If the current locale would be en_US, the output would be: €10.00 when passing the same object.

** The MoneyFacade::formatWithoutSymbol()** MoneyFacade::formatWithoutSymbol() method has the same behavior as MoneyFacade::formatWithSymbol(), except the fact that the currency symbol is not included.

Then, for the above example, the output is 10,00 or 10.00.

MoneyFacade::convertIntegerToDecimal() In some cases you need a plain decimal representation of the value in integer (i.e., cents). This can be useful, for example, for API calls.

MoneyFacade::convertDecimalToInteger() In some cases you need an integer (i.e., cents) representation for a decimal value. This can be useful for storing monetary values in the database.

Money collection form type

From Money version 2.2.*, you can have a money collection form type inside your forms which allow you to include a complex form collection that render a table with currency per store and gross/net price.

For example, add FormBuilder in your form type:

 * @param /Symfony/Component/Form/FormBuilderInterface $builder
 * @return $this
protected function addMoneyValueCollectionType(FormBuilderInterface $builder)
        	DiscountCalculatorTransfer::MONEY_VALUE_COLLECTION, //is the property in the main form you want to map. It should be transferred as in example
                	MoneyCollectionType::OPTION_AMOUNT_PER_STORE => false, //If you want to render per store, set it to true

        return $this;

Also, modify the twig template to include the form money value collection table.

 {{ form_money_collection(mainForm.moneyValueCollection) }} 

This renders the table with all currencies enabled in the store. You have to handle persistence yourself, which means that you have to save and read data to the MoneyValueTransfer collection.

The component provides only initial data.
