Can You Customize a Shopify Theme?

Last updated on January 12, 2023 @ 10:10 am

If you’re considering using Shopify to build your ecommerce store, you might be wondering if you can customize a Shopify theme. The answer is yes! In fact, one of the benefits of using Shopify is that it’s easy to customize your store’s design.

There are two ways to customize a Shopify theme:

1. Use the Theme Customizer

Shopify’s theme customizer is a tool that lets you make changes to your store’s design without having to edit any code. Simply log in to your Shopify admin, go to Online Store > Themes, and then click on the Customize button for the theme you want to edit.

From there, you’ll be able to change things like your store’s font, colors, and layout. And if you want to get really creative, you can even add your own CSS code.

PRO TIP: If you are thinking about customizing a Shopify theme, be warned that it is not an easy task. There are many complicated themes out there, and unless you are a web development expert, you will likely run into problems. Even if you are an expert, it is still a good idea to backup your theme before making any changes, just in case something goes wrong.

2. Edit the Code

If you’re comfortable editing code, then you can make more advanced changes to your Shopify theme by editing its code. To do this, simply go to Online Store > Themes, click on the Actions button for the theme you want to edit, and then select Edit code.

**The easiest way to edit your theme’s code is by using the Code Editor tool in the Shopify Theme Editor. **


(The above two methods are the only ways to customize a Shopify theme. If you’re using a third-party theme or one from the Shopify Theme Store, then you’ll need to contact the theme developer for help with customization.)
