move currency symbol for rich snippets

move currency symbol for rich snippets

 All M2 themes I have tested do not have proper structured data/rich snippets. The currency symbol is in the price span, and gets a warning.

An example: link to snippet

The problem code but cleaned up a bit:

<span itemprop="offers" itemscope itemtype="">
    <span  data-price-amount="54"  data-price-type="finalPrice" itemprop="price">
    <span class="price">$54.00</span>    </span>
    <meta itemprop="priceCurrency" content="USD" />


price $54.00 (The property $54.00 is not a valid price specification. Find out more about

If the $ is taken out of <span class="price">$54.00</span> like this it validates fine:

<span itemprop="offers" itemscope itemtype="">$<span  data-price-amount="54"  data-price-type="finalPrice" itemprop="price">
<span class="price">54.00</span>    </span>
<meta itemprop="priceCurrency" content="USD" />


But I cannot find which files are creating the price code and which code to change. What is the best way to validate the structured data?


Re: move currency symbol for rich snippets

We experienced same issue with rich snippets related to price and currency symbol included into a product price. What we did is created new template where <meta property="productSmiley Tonguerice: amount /> is used.


Here is an example of magento/app/design/frontend/CustomTheme/default/Magento_Catalog/templates/product/view/opengraph/general.phtml template:

<?php /** @var $block \Magento\Catalog\Block\Product\View */?>

<meta property="og:type" content="og:product" />
<meta property="og:title" content="<?php echo $block->escapeHtml($block->getProduct()->getName()); ?>" />
<meta property="og:image" content="<?php echo $block->escapeUrl($block->getImage($block->getProduct(), 'product_base_image')->getImageUrl()); ?>" />
<meta property="og:description" content="<?php echo $block->escapeHtml($block->stripTags($block->getProduct()->getShortDescription())); ?>" />
<meta property="og:url" content="<?php echo $block->escapeUrl($block->getProduct()->getProductUrl()); ?>" />
<?php if ($priceAmount = $block->getProduct()->getFinalPrice()):?>
    <meta property="product:price:amount" content="<?php /* @escapeNotVerified */ echo $priceAmount; ?>"/>
    <?php echo $block->getChildHtml('meta.currency'); ?>
<?php endif;?>

In the template above price is rendered without currency symbol for rich snippets and currency block is rendered in a separate currency.phtml template. This general.phtml template in CustomTheme follows same path as original template from Magento\Catalog module so there is no need to add layout file.


Re: move currency symbol for rich snippets

I dont think I understand.  Your template example is exactly as my base file except 




And has no effect on the validation.  Can you be clearer please as to how you used this file to validate the price?

Re: move currency symbol for rich snippets

Hi @robbiefowler


The template responsible for rendering price on a page /vendor/magento/module-catalog/view/base/templates/product/price/amount/default.phtml , however it renders price amount with currency symbol as you noticed. Indeed this is something needs to be addressed for future releases.


Suggestion is to address this issue with invalid snippet by adding custom "Offer" schema.

In order to do that we have to look into the /vendor/magento/module-catalog/view/base/templates/product/price/amount/default.phtml and find a way to disable "Offer" from the template. Likely Magento\Catalog\Pricing\Render\FinalPriceBox to disable schema usage:


<type name="Magento\Catalog\Pricing\Render\FinalPriceBox">
<plugin name="reset_schema" type="Custom\Catalog\Plugin\Product\Pricing\Render\FinalPriceBox"/>

The Custom\Catalog\Plugin\Product\Pricing\Render\FinalPriceBox class

namespace Custom\Catalog\Plugin\Product\Pricing\Render;

* Class FinalPriceBox
* @package Giftsdirect\Catalog\Plugin\Product\Pricing\Render
class FinalPriceBox
* @param \Magento\Catalog\Pricing\Render\FinalPriceBox $finalPriceBox
* @param \Magento\Framework\Pricing\Amount\Base $base
* @param array $arguments
* @return array
public function beforeRenderAmount(
\Magento\Catalog\Pricing\Render\FinalPriceBox $finalPriceBox,
\Magento\Framework\Pricing\Amount\Base $base,
array $arguments = []
) {
$arguments['schema'] = false;
return [

By doing this we will disable rendering of invalid Price with Currency inside default.phtml template.


The next step is obviously to provide a solution for valid Offer. We can create a price.phtml template responsible for rendering proper price and currency in a separate tags.

The price.phtml template:

<?php /** @var $block \Custom\Catalog\Block\Product\Price */ ?>
<div itemprop="offers" itemscope itemtype="">
<meta itemprop="priceCurrency" content="<?php /* @escapeNotVerified */ echo $block->getDisplayCurrencyCode()?>" />
<span class="schema-price" itemprop="price" content="<?php /* @escapeNotVerified */ echo $block->getPrice() ?>"><?php /* @escapeNotVerified */ echo $block->getPrice() ?></span>
<?php echo $block->getChildHtml() ?>

 The  Custom\Catalog\Block\Product\Price block:

namespace Custom\Catalog\Block\Product;

use Magento\Framework\Registry;
use Magento\Framework\View\Element\Template;
use Magento\Framework\Pricing\PriceCurrencyInterface;

* Class Price
* @package Custom\Catalog\Block\Product
class Price extends Template
* @var PriceCurrencyInterface
protected $priceCurrency;

* @var Registry
protected $registry;

* Price constructor.
* @param Template\Context $context
* @param PriceCurrencyInterface $priceCurrency
* @param Registry $registry
* @param array $data
public function __construct(
Template\Context $context,
PriceCurrencyInterface $priceCurrency,
Registry $registry,
array $data = []
) {
$this->priceCurrency = $priceCurrency;
$this->registry = $registry;
parent::__construct($context, $data);

* @return string
public function getDisplayCurrencyCode()
return $this->priceCurrency->getCurrency()->getCurrencyCode();

* @return float
public function getPrice()
/** @var \Magento\Catalog\Model\Product $product */
$product = $this->registry->registry('current_product');
if ($product) {
return round(
return 0;

This class will give us price of a current product and currency selected on a website.

Finally, the price.phtml together with Block class have to be included into catalog_product_view.xml layout.

<referenceContainer name="">
<block class="Custom\Catalog\Block\Product\Price" name="" after="" template="Custom_Catalog::product/view/price.phtml" />


Similar approach with ListItem schema can be introduced on Catalog Category Pages and Catalog Search result page.

Re: move currency symbol for rich snippets

I get error - 

Class Custom\Catalog\Block\Product\Price does not exist

Where does the price.phtml template go? 

Re: move currency symbol for rich snippets

The price.phtml file should go under 


Hope it helps. 

Re: move currency symbol for rich snippets

I am still getting the error

Class Custom\Catalog\Block\Product\Price does not exist

Thanks for the code.  But maybe its a bit too unclear what goes where to be able to use it.

Re: move currency symbol for rich snippets

Are you sure you implemented the class which shows as does not exist? Maybe TYPO in the code? Please check.

Re: move currency symbol for rich snippets

I followed your code.  But it is not 100% clear which files should be edited

The Custom\Catalog\Plugin\Product\Pricing\Render\FinalPriceBox class?

inside default.phtml template.?  

The price.phtml template: you said was 


 The  Custom\Catalog\Block\Product\Price block:?

catalog_product_view.xml layout.  - there are a few...

Re: move currency symbol for rich snippets

Late reply but will help for community.
This is solution:


Extend file of this:




<?php echo $block->getSchema() ? ' itemprop="price"' : '' ?>>


<?php echo $block->getSchema() ? ' itemprop="price" content="' . $block->getDisplayValue() . '"': '' ?>>
