Currency culture & resource culture [4.2.1650]]
I've noticed under settings > ecommerce > SupportedCurrencyConfig that EUR is coupled with de-DE culture.
This can be altered of course, but a currency culture shouldn't be locked down to one culture. Instead it should (preferably) left alone and use system culture, or otherwise be coupled to the site culture (resources > Default Culture Key).
If I set the culture under ecommerce to de-DE, a euro setup displays as 50,00 €
If I set the culture under ecommerce to nl-NL, a euro setup displays as € 50,00
If i set the culture under ecommerce to en-GB, a euro setup displays as £ 50.00
If I set the culture under ecommerce to en-US, a euro setup displays as $ 50.00
Not only does it completely override the fact that EUR is default currency, but even if we ignore the symbol, english/us customers have a different understanding of the . and the , so we need to be able to show prices in the customers culture.
A US customer expects to see € 50.00 and a German or Dutch customer expects € 50,00
(given the fact that the we're either on a single language version or standard front-end language is selected as English).
As an add-on to the previous post, orders seemed to be grouped/totalled by the currency culture.
I can understand that $ are seperate from € but changing the culture of a currency triggers somehow a different subtotal aswell...
Your request was logged for implementation.
We will be making improvements in this area of the system and your feedback is very much appreciated.

Well on behalf of all the British people, I'm glad I shared my two cents so euro's won't be displayed as pounds :)
Have a great weekend!
