How Do I Add a Banner on Shopify?

Last updated on January 9, 2023 @ 6:50 pm

Adding a banner on Shopify is easy and can be done in just a few steps. First, you need to create a new banner image. You can do this in any image editing program, such as Photoshop or GIMP. Make sure the banner image is the correct size for your shop. The recommended size for a banner image is 1200×300 pixels. Once you have your banner image ready, upload it to your Shopify account. To do this, go to the “Themes” page in your Shopify admin and click “Edit HTML/CSS.” In the “Assets” folder, click “Add a new asset.”

Select “Image” from the drop-down menu and click “Choose File.” Choose the file from your computer and click “Open.” Once the file is uploaded, click “Save.” Now that your banner image is uploaded, you need to add it to your theme. To do this, go back to the “Themes” page and click “Edit HTML/CSS.” In the “Layout” folder, click “theme.liquid.” Find the section of code that says “<div id=”header>” and add the following code below it:

<div id="banner">
  <img src="{{ 'banner.jpg' | asset_url }}" alt="banner">

Replace "banner.jpg" with the name of your banner image file. Save your changes. Your banner should now be visible on your shop's home page!

PRO TIP: Adding a banner to your Shopify store can be a great way to promote your products or services. However, before you add a banner, you should be aware of a few things. First, banners can be a distraction to your customers and can take away from the overall look of your store. Second, banners can be difficult to change or remove once they are added. Finally, if you are not careful, banners can slow down your store's loading time.

Adding a banner to your Shopify store is a great way to add some visual interest and personality to your site. By following the steps above, you can easily add a banner to your site in just a few minutes.
