Price selector

The price selector is one of the predefined type extractors in iText pdf2Data, and allows you to easily extract prices from a PDF.

Based on the content of the data field region, it defines the format that is used for prices in the document.

To be more precise:

  1. decimal separator,
  2. group separator,
  3. preceding or following currency sign.

That format is then used to find and extract matching values. 

Best practices

To increase accuracy, the data field`s region should contain the price that contains as many of the following things as possible: currency sign, group, and decimal separators.


It is better to use $1,674.00 or $2,025.54 instead of $351.54,

As with all predefined type extractors it can be used together with the Pattern selector
