We've recently released theme updates for Mobilia 3.2, Responsive 4.2, and Retina 1.1 which include three major feature additions. Our most requested features are now standard in all of our themes, including a Currency Converter, Newsletter Pop-up, and Instagram Feed. These features are included without any additional coding or customization work necessary – ready to use straight out of the box!
Theme upgrades are always free, if you've purchased a theme from our site you will receive a download link automatically. If you purchased a theme from the Shopify Theme Store, you can follow these instructions.
A Currency Converter has been included as a standard Theme Setting and will display as a dropdown menu in the header of your shop. This will allow customers to update their prices dynamically throughout your shop.
After enabling the converter to display, you can choose which currencies are to be showcased on your shop and updating your money formatting settings.
Easily one of the most requested features for our themes was the ability to have a pop-up appear to display promotions or encourage customers to sign up for the newsletter. Using this feature will give you the chance to drastically increase your signup conversion rates. You can also use it to showcase special offers or discount codes.
Another major new feature is the ability to display an Instagram feed in your homepage. These images will link directly back to your Instagram account. This will give you a greater opportunity at converting your customers into social media followers, while adding continuity and life to your storefront.
