How to Customise your Shopify Store - Favicon

Customising the favicon of your Shopify store helps enhance your brand identity and provides a professional look to your website. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to do it:

How to Customise Your Shopify Store's Favicon

Step 1: Prepare Your Favicon

  1. Design Your Favicon: Ensure your favicon is a simplified version of your logo or another symbol that represents your brand.
  2. Size and Format: The ideal size for a favicon is 32x32 pixels. Save it in a suitable format, such as PNG or ICO.

Step 2: Access Your Shopify Admin

  1. Log in to your Shopify account.
  2. Once logged in, you’ll be directed to your Shopify admin dashboard.

Step 3: Navigate to the Theme Customiser

  1. From the Shopify admin dashboard, go to "Online Store" and click on "Themes."
  2. Locate your current theme and click the "Customise" button to open the theme customiser.

Step 4: Find the Favicon Settings

  1. In the theme customiser, look for the "Theme settings" option, usually found in the bottom-left corner.
  2. Click on "Theme settings" to expand the options.
  3. Look for a section labelled "Favicon" and click on it.

Step 5: Upload Your Favicon

  1. In the favicon section, you will see an option to upload an image.
  2. Click the "Select image" button to upload your favicon file from your computer.
  3. Once uploaded, the image will appear in the favicon settings.

Step 6: Save Your Changes

  1. After uploading your favicon, click the "Save" button in the theme customiser to apply the changes to your store.
  2. Wait for the confirmation that the settings have been saved.

Step 7: Verify the Favicon

  1. Open your store in a new browser tab to check if the favicon is displayed correctly in the browser tab.
  2. Ensure the favicon appears sharp and clear. If it looks blurry, consider re-uploading a higher quality or appropriately sized image.

Step 8: Adjust (if necessary)

  1. If the favicon does not look as expected, you can go back to the theme customiser and upload a different image or adjust the size and format of the existing one.
  2. Save and verify again until you are satisfied with the appearance.


Customising the favicon on your Shopify store is a simple yet effective way to enhance your brand’s visibility and professionalism. By following these steps, you can ensure your store’s favicon is properly integrated and looks great, providing a cohesive and polished experience for your visitors.
