How to customize the Checkout Page

For most Shopify users, the checkout page template cannot be accessed from the template editor and is generated by Shopify. You will need to use "Edit Languages" to customize the checkout text, while you can use the theme settings to revise the colors and logo. Shopify Plus merchants do have access to the checkout.liquid file.


Merchants using Basic Shopify, Shopify, or Advanced Shopify have very limited control over how the checkout looks. This limitation also extends to the popup windows shown when a shopper uses a dynamic checkout button. In general, you can only change the colors, fonts, and select text and images on checkout pages.


Making advanced changes to the layout of any checkout page is not possible (this includes any of the pages shown after the user clicks "checkout" or a theme or permalink automatically starts the checkout process).


Please note this is a limitation of both Basic and Advanced Shopify plans and not your Shopify EcomSolid theme.

Where Can I Find the Checkout Theme Settings?

The Checkout page is largely beyond the control of the theme, as it is controlled by the Shopify platform. However, there are some cosmetic settings that can be controlled through the theme editor's Theme settings.
