New currency formatting theme setting guidelines
Effective August 18, 2021
Shopify has introduced new guidelines around currency formatting for themes. If you're developing a theme, you can introduce a currency setting that lets merchants choose whether the currency code is included in price displays.
Showing the currency code with a price helps customers understand what currency they're browsing in, especially when the currency uses a common symbol like the dollar ($), so that there's no confusion at checkout.
To learn more about how this setting is implemented, and other considerations, refer to the price display UX guidelines.
