How are thousands of dollars punctuated in Spanish? I believe $10.00 in Spanish is rendered as $10,00; how is $10,000.00 punctuated'

Thanks for that clarification, James.

I think we often expect that since the peoples in two different countries speak Spanish, customs in the two countries will be the same. It isn't true with Spanish any more than it is with English.

What Guaito and Heidita say is correct, but only to a point. It is correct in many Spanish-speaking countries. In Mexico, the punctuation is the same as in the US.

We use commas instead of dots.

Hello Barbara, in Spanish the punctuation is exactly the opposite than in English. More, the name of the currency is after the number.
So $10,000.00 in English is 10.000,00 $ in Spanish.
The dot is optional, so you can write 10000,00 $.
For longer numbers is as follows, for instance $1,000,000.00 is 1.000.000,00 $.
I hope this can be a help for you.
