How to Create and Customize a Footer on Shopify

As for a website, it is important to add a footer to your Shopify store.

The footer brings together important information or links about your store in one place. You will usually find a small description, links to contact pages, about, collections or legal pages.

In this tutorial, you will learn how to create and customize a footer for your Shopify store that will appear on all of your store pages.

To start creating your footer:

  • Go to the administration interface of your Shopify store with an administrator account.
  • In the menu on the left, click on “Online store” to bring up new options,
  • Click on “Navigation”.

On the “navigation” page you will find 2 menus added by Shopify when you created your store. The menu of interest here is the one named “Footer”. Click on the title of the “Footer menu” menu to open it and be able to edit it.

If you do not have any menu in your list of menus or if you do not have the “Footer menu” menu, you can create it by clicking on the “Add menu” link and then indicating in the “Title” field the name of your menu.add a footer menu on Shopify

Once you are on the menu edit page, you can add, modify or delete the items contained in this menu.


If you have pages added by default in the footer menu, you can delete or modify them using the “Edit” and “Delete” buttons located to the right of each line of an element.

Of course, you can also modify the title of the menu by filling in the field “Title” the new name of the footer menu.

Finally, you can add new items by clicking on the “Add menu item” button. A window will open on the page asking you to fill in a name for this new element in the “Name” field and then add a link for this element.

By clicking in the “Link” field, a drop-down list will appear allowing you to choose a specific type of item to add to the menu and then the item in question to add. You can also paste a link copied from your store’s URL.
