Support » Plugin: WooCommerce » How could it be corrected the Suriname currency sign?

  • Resolved yenilaza



    I am currently using woocommerce in my online store and at the time to choose the coin of the country where I sell then I see that is a mistake. It is shown as “$” for Suriname, instead of “SRD” which means Suriname Dollar. Is there any way to correct that? My clients get confused most of the time.

    I am sending the link of the national bank of Suriname :

    Hi @yenilaza

    Thanks for reaching out!

    I understand that you want to display the acronym, SRD (Surinamese Dollar) instead of the $ symbol for your site’s currency since this causes confusion for your customers.

    Kindly be informed that this is the default symbol that you can see under WooCommerce > Settings > General > Currency.

    To change the currency symbol, please add the code below to your child theme’s functions.php file or via a plugin that allows custom functions to be added, such as the Code snippets plugin. Avoid adding custom code directly to your parent theme’s functions.php file as this will be wiped entirely when you update the theme.

     * Change a currency symbol
    add_filter('woocommerce_currency_symbol', 'change_existing_currency_symbol', 10, 2);
    function change_existing_currency_symbol( $currency_symbol, $currency ) {
         switch( $currency ) {
              case 'SRD': $currency_symbol = 'SRD$'; break;
         return $currency_symbol;


    Hope this helps!
