Online Store Data


If you have a Shopify online store, then you can create webpages in your Shopify admin. Webpages contain information that rarely changes or that customers will reference often, like an "About Us" page or a "Contact Us" page.

You can also add a blog to your online store for content that you'll be updating regularly, or if you want to encourage feedback.

Uploading files to your website

You can upload, manage, and delete files from the Files page in Shopify.

There are a few reasons why you might upload files to Shopify:

  • You want to add an image in the content of a webpage, blog post, product page, or collection page.
  • You want to add an image or logo to customize your theme.
  • You want to make a file available for customers to download.

In most cases, it's easier to upload image files directly when you're adding content to a webpage, blog post, product page, or collection page. You can also upload images directly when you're customizing your theme.

After you upload an image, you can copy its URL from the Files page. If you want to make a file available for download, then you need to upload it on the Files page in Shopify and then add a link to it in a page's content or in your online store navigation.

After you add products and create collections, webpages, store policies, or blog posts, you need to organize them on your online store so that customers will be able to find them.

You can view and change your online store navigation from the Navigation page in your Shopify admin. The appearance and location of menus depend on your store's theme.
