Receipt code editor

You can customize the template for your printed receipts by using the Liquid editor in the Shopify admin. The files that make up your receipts contain Liquid, Shopify's templating language. You should only edit the code for your receipts if you know HTML and CSS, and have a basic understanding of Liquid.

You can change the receipt templates and the section templates that are used on your printed receipts. Receipt templates are the types of receipts that you print in your store.

  1. From your Shopify admin, click Settings > Apps and sales channels.

  2. From the Apps and sales channels page, click Point of sale.
