React Currency Input Field Component.


  • Allows abbreviations eg. 1k = 1,000 2.5m = 2,500,000
  • Prefix option eg. £ or $
  • Automatically inserts group separator
  • Accepts Intl locale config
  • Can use arrow down/up to step
  • Can allow/disallow decimals
  • Written in TypeScript and has type support
  • Does not use any third party packages




npm install react-currency-input-field


yarn add react-currency-input-field


import CurrencyInput from 'react-currency-input-field';

  placeholder="Please enter a number"
  onValueChange={(value, name) => console.log(value, name)}

Have a look in src/examples for more examples on implementing and validation.


Name Type Default Description
allowDecimals boolean true Allow decimals
allowNegativeValue boolean true Allow user to enter negative value
defaultValue number Default value
value number Programmatically set the value
onValueChange function Handle change in value
placeholder string Placeholder if no value
decimalsLimit number 2 Limit length of decimals allowed
decimalScale number Specify decimal scale for padding/trimming eg. 1.5 -> 1.50 or 1.234 -> 1.23 if decimal scale 2
fixedDecimalLength number Value will always have the specified length of decimals
prefix string Include a prefix eg. £ or $
decimalSeparator string locale default Separator between integer part and fractional part of value
groupSeparator string locale default Separator between thousand, million and billion
intlConfig object International locale config
disabled boolean false Disabled
disableAbbreviations boolean false Disable abbreviations eg. 1k -> 1,000, 2m -> 2,000,000
disableGroupSeparators boolean false Disable auto adding the group separator between values, eg. 1000 -> 1,000
maxLength number Maximum characters the user can enter
step number Incremental value change on arrow down and arrow up key press


It can parse values with abbreviations k, m and b


  • 1k = 1,000
  • 2.5m = 2,500,000
  • 3.456B = 3,456,000,000

This can be turned off by passing in disableAbbreviations.


You can change the decimal and group separators by passing in decimalSeparator and groupSeparator.


import CurrencyInput from 'react-currency-input-field';

<CurrencyInput decimalSeparator="," groupSeparator="." />;

Note: the separators cannot be a number, and decimalSeparator must be different to groupSeparator.

To turn off auto adding the group separator, add disableGroupSeparators={true}.

Intl Locale Config

This component can also accept international locale config to format the currency to locale setting.


import CurrencyInput from 'react-currency-input-field';

<CurrencyInput intlConfig={{ locale: 'en-US', currency: 'GBP' }} />;

<CurrencyInput intlConfig={{ locale: 'ja-JP', currency: 'JPY' }} />;

<CurrencyInput intlConfig={{ locale: 'en-IN', currency: 'INR' }} />;

locale should be a BCP 47 language tag, such as "en-US" or "en-IN".

currency should be a ISO 4217 currency code, such as "USD" for the US dollar, "EUR" for the euro, or "CNY" for the Chinese RMB.

Any prefix, group separator and decimal separator options passed in will override the default locale settings.

Fixed Decimal Length

Use fixedDecimalLength so that the value will always have the specified length of decimals.

This formatting happens onBlur.

Example if fixedDecimalLength was 2:

- 1 -> 1.00
- 123 -> 1.23
- 12.3 -> 12.30
- 12.34 -> 12.34

Decimal Scale and Decimals Limit

decimalsLimit and decimalScale are similar, the difference is decimalsLimit prevents the user from typing more than the limit, and decimalScale will format the decimals onBlur to the specified length, padding or trimming as necessary.

Example: If decimal scale 2, 1.5 -> 1.50 and 1.234 -> 1.23

Format values for display

Use the formatValue function to format the values to a more user friendly string. This is useful if you are displaying the value somewhere else ie. the total of multiple inputs.

import { formatValue } from 'react-currency-input-field';

// Format using prefix, groupSeparator and decimalSeparator
const formattedValue1 = formatValue({
  value: 123456,
  groupSeparator: ',',
  decimalSeparator: '.',
  prefix: '$',

// $123,456

// Format using intl locale config
const formattedValue2 = formatValue({
  value: 500000,
  intlConfig: { locale: 'en-IN', currency: 'INR' },

// ₹5,00,000

v3.0.0 Release Notes

Breaking Changes

  • :warning: onChange renamed to onValueChange :warning:
  • onBlurValue has been removed.
  • turnOffAbbreviations renamed to disableAbbreviations.
  • turnOffSeparators renamed to disableGroupSeparators.
  • precision renamed to decimalScale

Improvements in v3

  • Intl locale config can be passed in. Please note: formatting where the currency symbol is placed after the value like a suffix eg. (1 234,56 €) might cause problems, this is still in development.
  • Group separator will default to browser locale if not specified.
  • Can pass ref to the component.
  • onChange and onBlur functions can be passed in and will be called with original event.


As this component grew in usage, I started getting more bug reports and feature requests. That wasn't a problem though, because I was always happy to fix any bugs and implement any features if I could.

However, this meant sometimes I was a bit trigger happy, and didn't always think about how the different options interacted with each other. I found that it was getting a bit convoluted for my liking, and choices I had made earlier in development, now seemed like it could be improved.

Therefore, I took the opportunity of v3 to do a bit of tidying up for the component, in order to make it more future proof and intuitive to use.

I apologize if any of the changes cause new bugs or issues. Please let me know and I will fix asap.
