How do I change the look and feel of my store?

Shopify comes with a live theme editor, which means you can preview changes to your theme as you make them. Just click the Preview in new window button.

You can make some basic changes to the look and feel of your store by editing your Customize theme page.

Please review our design policy if you feel that you need more customization than what your Customize theme page offer.

To edit your theme, log in to your admin panel and:

  1. From your Shopify admin, click Online Store:

    Online store

  2. Click Themes:

    Online themes

There, you will see two large buttons:

  • Customize theme: is where you can easily change different aspects of your design. Nothing will be permanent until you click Save Changes, so have fun and play around with your theme!

  • Click the button and click Edit HTML/CSS. This area is for those who are more daring and want to jump right into the code.
