Custom Currency Symbol for WooCommerce

Recently I had a customer who needed to change out the currency symbol in WooCommerce. This is possible with a small snippet, but I wanted to offer this user a way to do this with a plugin. I couldn’t find one so I decided to write a quick one to handle this.

What this simple plugin does is add a new setting in the Currency Options section of the WooCommerce General settings.

Currency Symbol Setting

Now whatever you enter will replace the default symbol for the currently selected currency. If you change currency, this custom symbol will still be displayed. It will override whatever the symbol is for the selected currency. You can remove it by clearing out the symbol and saving.

Custom symbol USD instead of $

The plugin plays nicely with the other currency settings so you can move the symbol to the left or right of the value like I did in that example above.
