Liferay Commerce has several currencies pre-configured and ready to use. Each store must have a primary currency enabled, to be able to process orders. This article serves as a reference for the metadata associated with each currency.
To manage currencies, navigate to Control Panel → Commerce → Settings then click the Currencies tab.

|Format Pattern||Currency’s sign, the number of digits to come between commas, and which places are displayed.

A value of 0.01 in the above format would be displayed as $0.01.|
