Installing a Shopify theme is fast and easy!  The process varies slightly depending on where you purchased the theme.

If you purchased from the Shopify Theme Store

When you complete your theme purchase at the Shopify Theme Store, the theme is generally installed for you automatically.  You can navigate to the Themes section of your Shopify dashboard to verify this.  If the theme name is not listed as the active theme, scroll down and see if it's inactive.  If so, you can activate it and continue.

If you purchased directly from us and already have a Shopify store setup

If you purchased the theme directly from our site and already have a store setup on Shopify, simply login to your admin area and click Themes in the left navigation menu. From there, click Upload a theme in the upper-right corner of the screen. A window will appear. Click the Browse button and navigate to the themename.zip that you downloaded from our site.

Once the file finishes uploading, the theme will show up as an unpublished theme. To activate it, click the Publish button. A new window will appear asking if you want to replace your current theme. Don't worry!  Your old theme will not be deleted, it will just be set as inactive.  Click the Publish button to continue. The theme is now installed and ready for use!

If you do not have a Shopify store setup or you only have a free trial

If you don't already have a Shopify store setup or are on a free trial, your best bet is to contact us after you've purchased your theme and we can setup a new account for you. The benefit of going this route is that there is no set time limit to your trial and you don't have to pay any monthly fees until you're ready to launch your store. If desired, we'll also install the theme for you and help you get setup free of charge! If you'd like to take advantage of this, contact us to get started.
