Display your store policies and other legal information

Merchants who sell in Japan often add pages to display their store's legal policies, and then add links to those pages to their store's footer menu.

You need to create your own store policies. Contact a local legal expert for help.

You can create pages for the following store policies in the Shopify admin:

  • Legal notice (特定商取引法に基づく表記)
  • Terms of service
  • Terms of sale


  1. From your Shopify admin, go to Settings > Policies.

  2. Enter your store policies.

  3. Click Save.

When you add your store policies, they are automatically linked in the footer of your checkout pages.

Adding store policies automatically adds a link to them in your checkout pages. However, creating new pages for your legal policies and linking them to your footer ensures that customers can view legal policies on any page of your online store.


  1. From your Shopify admin, go to Online Store > Pages.

  2. Click Add page.

  3. Enter a Title the text box. Paste your legal policies into the Content text box provided.

  4. Click Save.

After creating your legal policies, and creating new pages for them, a lot of store owners add links to their legal policies in the footer of their online store. This allows customers to view legal policies outside of your checkout pages.

  1. From your Shopify admin, go to Online Store > Navigation.

  2. On the Navigation page, click your footer menu.

  3. Click Add menu item.

  4. Enter the title of your legal policies page.

  5. Click the Link field, and then select Pages.

  6. Select the page that your legal policies are on.

  7. Click Save menu.
