The options that you can set are:

  • symbol: the symbol to be used before of the user values. default: 'US$'
  • showSymbol: set if the symbol must be displayed or not. default: false
  • symbolStay: set if the symbol will stay in the field after the user exists the field. default: false
  • thousands: the thousands separator. default: ','
  • decimal: the decimal separator. default: '.'
  • precision: how many decimal places are allowed. default: 2
  • defaultZero: when the user enters the field, it sets a default mask using zero. default: true
  • allowZero: use this setting to prevent users from inputing zero. default: false
  • allowNegative: use this setting to prevent users from inputing negative values. default: false


We have 2 bonus methods that can be useful to you:

  • .unmaskMoney() which removes maskMoney from an element.
  • .mask() which causes maskMoney to actually apply the mask to your input.
