What's the interfaceID for ERC-20? It's not in the EIP. It's shown for 165 and 721 but not for ERC-20.

Short Answer probably 0x36372b07

I think you can add the interfaces like this in your ERC20 Contract constructor, you need to import IERC20 and ERC20 and ERC165 (or ERC165Storage) from OpenZeppelin


and test them like this

const erc165Interface = await mytokenInstance.supportsInterface('0x01ffc9a7'); // true
const tokenInterface = await mytokenInstance.supportsInterface('0x36372b07'); // true
const tokenNameInterface = await mytokenInstance.supportsInterface('0x06fdde03'); // true
const tokenSymbolInterface = await mytokenInstance.supportsInterface('0x95d89b41'); // true
const tokenDecimalsInterface = await mytokenInstance.supportsInterface('0x313ce567'); // true
const tokenNoneExistingInterface = await mytokenInstance.supportsInterface('0x19be5360'); // false

here is also a link https://github.com/ticket721/erc2280#erc-165-supported-interfaces


Solidity has type function:

function interfaceId() public pure returns(bytes4){
    return type(IERC20).interfaceId;

with this function, you can get the interfaceId of any interface

  • result of return will be the answer. i show how to fish

  • You should also explain how to fish while showing it. A little explanation does not hurt. Commented Aug 27, 2022 at 5:16
  • @Itération122442 Agree.

Found this example in a contract.

* @dev See {IERC165-supportsInterface}
function supportsInterface(bytes4 interfaceId) public view virtual override(ERC165, IERC165) returns (bool) {
           interfaceId == type(IERC721).interfaceId ||
           interfaceId == type(IERC721Metadata).interfaceId ||

Hope it helps!

  • The OP is asking about the interface ID of ERC-20, not ERC-721. Commented May 25, 2023 at 3:37
