Adding a favicon to your store

A favicon, or favorites icon, is a small square image or logo that appears next to a web address. You can find favicons on your browser tabs, as well as on browser pages that list web addresses, such as the bookmarks page. You can add a favicon to your online store to help strengthen your brand and to add a polished look to your website.

Create a favicon

You can use a free favicon generator website to create a custom favicon, or you can create your own. To find a favicon generator, search the internet for free favicon generator.

The ideal size for a favicon is either 16x16 pixels or 32x32 pixels. If your favicon file is too large, then it will be reduced to 32x32 pixels when you upload it to Shopify.
