Customize your theme


Ready to make your store unique by personalizing your theme? It’s easy to upload a header, logo, or background image, add a slideshow, adjust color and font settings, and make other adjustments to your theme layout - no coding required.

Need to refresh your logo or maybe update your branding and design isn’t your cup of tea? 🍵 We recommend checking out a resource like 99designs to match you up with the right person to create just what you need.

Click around!

In the Customize design area of your admin, each built-in theme has its own available set of customization options. The best way to get familiar is to play around and watch the preview window update with your changes. Try changing the number of featured products, adding a slideshow, or adjusting the fonts to see how each edit affects your store’s look and feel.

Freedom to experiment

If you’re making changes and don’t like how things look, exit the design area without saving. Edits you make behind the scenes won’t show in your live store until you hit Save.



  1. Head to the area in your admin.
  2. Click Customize design.
  3. Click on any element in the left pane to make changes - upload theme images, tweak colors and fonts, and adjust your layout settings.
  4. When you’re ready to commit, click Save. To undo changes, click Exit without saving.
