Customizing your Store

Getting started

If you are on a paid plan you have the ability to fully customize your store. To get started go to Store > Themes and install the theme of your choice. You should automatically be taken to the store editor after installation, you can get to this location again by going to Store > Editor within the main menu.

Content blocks

Our customizable stores are made up of blocks. Put simply blocks are pieces of content; images, text, video, HTML etc that you add to your store. You can add as many blocks as you like and therefore you have full control over your store. Blocks can be added to the homepage and content pages within your store.

Adding blocks

Adding blocks is simple. Just hover over the section you wish to add a new block and select the green ‘+’ option. This will allow you to choose a block type. We have a lot of blocks to choose from and over time these will expand to include more and more block types. Simply select your block and it will be added to your store.

Once you’ve made your changes select ‘Update’ to save your changes.

Grid blocks

The most versatile of the blocks is the ‘Grid’ block as this allows you to specify a number of columns and within each column add additional blocks i.e. Image blocks, text blocks etc. Allowing you to create horizontal content sections. Once you’ve added a grid block simply add the content required to each column.
