Customising your Shopify store’s product pages is essential for providing detailed information and a seamless shopping experience to your customers. Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you through the process:

Step 1: Log into Your Shopify Admin

  1. Go to Shopify Login.
  2. Enter your store’s credentials to access the admin dashboard.

Step 2: Navigate to the Themes Section

  1. In the admin dashboard, look for the Online Store section on the left-hand sidebar.
  2. Click on Themes. This will take you to the Themes page where you can manage your current theme.

Step 3: Access the Theme Editor

  1. In the Themes page, find your current theme.
  2. Click on Customise to open the theme editor.

Step 4: Navigate to Product Pages

  1. In the theme editor, you’ll see a preview of your store with a sidebar on the left.
  2. Use the dropdown menu at the top of the sidebar to navigate to Product pages.

Step 5: Customise Product Page Sections

Product pages typically consist of several sections, such as product images, descriptions, price, and add-to-cart buttons. You can customise each of these sections to enhance the shopping experience.

1. Product Images:

  1. Ensure high-quality images are uploaded for each product.
  2. Customise the layout of the images, such as the size and position.
  3. Enable features like image zoom or carousel for better product viewing.

2. Product Details:

  1. Click on the Product details section to edit it.
  2. Customise the layout and format of the product title, price, and description.
  3. Add additional information tabs (e.g., Specifications, Size Chart, Shipping Info).

3. Add-to-Cart Button:

  1. Customise the style, colour, and size of the add-to-cart button.
  2. Ensure the button is prominent and easily accessible.

4. Variant Options:

  1. If your products have variants (e.g., different sizes, colours), customise how these options are displayed.
  2. Use dropdown menus, buttons, or swatches depending on your theme’s capabilities.

5. Customer Reviews:

  1. Enable customer reviews if your theme supports it or use a review app from the Shopify App Store.
  2. Customise the review section layout and display settings.

6. Related Products:

  1. Add a section for related or recommended products to encourage additional purchases.
  2. Customise the layout and number of products displayed.

Step 6: Customise Theme Styles for Product Pages

  1. In the theme editor, go to Theme settings.
  2. Adjust the following settings as needed:
    • Colours: Set colours for text, buttons, backgrounds, and other elements on the product pages.
    • Typography: Choose fonts and sizes for headings, body text, and other text elements.
    • Buttons: Customise the style, shape, and colour of buttons used on the product pages.

Step 7: Add Custom Content (Optional)

For advanced customisation, you can add custom HTML, CSS, or JavaScript:

  1. In the Themes page, click on Actions next to your theme.
  2. Select Edit code.
  3. Add or modify code in the appropriate files (usually the product.liquid file in the Templates folder) to create custom content or styling for the product pages. This step is recommended for users with coding knowledge or with the help of a developer.

Step 8: Save and Preview

  1. Save your changes frequently to avoid losing any edits.
  2. Use the Preview option to see how your product pages look on both desktop and mobile devices.
  3. Make sure to test all functionalities, such as adding products to the cart and selecting variants, to ensure everything works correctly.

Step 9: Publish Changes

Once you are satisfied with your customisations:

  1. Click on Save to apply the changes.
  2. Your Shopify product pages will now reflect the customisations you made.

By following these steps, you can effectively customise your Shopify store’s product pages to provide detailed product information, enhance user experience, and boost sales.
