Creating product templates

There is one Default template for every product page. This means that changes made to a default template will apply to all products that use that template.
To change the content or style of a specific product, you will need to create a new template and then assign the template to that product in the Shopify admin.

1. How to create a new product template:

  • In the theme editor, use the page selector to open Products > Create template.
  • Add Name in the provided field for the new template. (e.g. Bottoms)
For the Based on drop-down menu, select which existing template you want to base your new template on. The new template will duplicate the settings of the template you selected.
  • Click Save.

2. How to assign the product template

After creating a product template, return to the Shopify admin and assign the newly created template to the product:
  • From your Shopify admin, go to Products.
  • Locate the product that you want to change the template.
  • Use the Theme template to select the created product template to apply to the selected product.
  • Click Save.
Note: Product templates cannot be assigned on unpublished or trial themes. All changes to your templates will be saved but can only be assigned when published and purchased.
