Last updated on October 1, 2022 @ 3:50 pm

Adding a product description in Shopify is easy! Just follow these simple steps:

1. Log in to your Shopify admin panel and go to Products.

2. Find the product you want to add a description for and click Edit.

3. In the Description field, type or paste your product description.

4. If you want to style your text, use the Text editor. You can use the Bold, Italic, and Underline buttons to style your text, or you can use the HTML editor to add HTML tags.

5. When you’re done, click Save.

And that’s it! You’ve successfully added a product description in Shopify.

Product descriptions are an essential part of any online store, as they help shoppers understand what a product is and what it can do for them. Luckily, Shopify makes it easy to add product descriptions (with or without HTML styling), so you can get started right away!

PRO TIP: If you are planning to add a product description in Shopify, be aware that there is a limit of 500 characters for the description. This includes any HTML code that may be used in the description. Also, keep in mind that the description will be truncated at 500 characters on the product page, so make sure to provide a brief, but informative description.
