You've just added this product to the cart:
In Magento 2 Default, the position of symbol is fixed in front of the price value. In fact, the position of currency symbols are different based on various countries. Many currencies in the English-speaking world and Latin America place it before the amount like this $20.00 but in many European countries such as France, Germany, Greece, Scandinavian countries, the symbol is usually placed after the amount like this 20.00€. Unfortunately, Magento default fails to change the position of the currency symbols.
Another issue in Magento default is that decimal separator is unchangeable(fixed as dot). However, different countries officially designate different symbols for the decimal separator. Therefore, it is necessary to make clear in this symbol to avoid misunderstanding of customers from different nations.
The minus character always stand in front of value in Magento defaut. However, in some specific cases, store owners would like to display it in other positions.
The number of decimal digits in Magento default is fixed as 0 and 2 depending on currencies. However, many stores demand to display the price as clear as possible to customers by showing more decimal digits

More importantly, there are 5 positions for currency symbol correlated with price value including:
To make the price value more clear, using the thousands separator is necessary to separate the thousands groups. Depending on the custom of each nation, the sign of separator differs. Likewise, while the U.K. and U.S. use a comma to separate groups of thousands, many other countries use a dot instead, and some countries separate thousands groups with a thin space.
Understanding this difference, Currency Formatter offers 4 types of separators to meet any nations’ numeric format standards including:

This was my best experience with the Mageplaza. We downloaded the currency formatter extension for Magento 2. After installing it we got some additional requirements from the client and we contacted Mageplaza and they said no problem we will customize it. First I thought they will ask for the extra cost because the extension was free in the first place but Desmond told me that they do not have discrimination among paid and free users and I was shocked by this statement and he customized the extension in just a one day. I would like to thank Desmond and the Mageplaza team. Hope we will get an opportunity to work with you again.
