First check which shell you are using by opening a terminal and entering following command:

echo $SHELL
  • If it prints /bin/zsh then you can add your export to the end of ~/.zshrc file.
  • If it prints /bin/bash or /usr/local/bin/bash you can use ~/.bashrc.
  • But if it is another shell check corresponding shell's configuration file.

Normally you can create the profile file yourself and shells would read it if it exists.
