Online store editor for Shopify Mobile
After installing the Shopify app, you can log in to your account and start running your store from your mobile device.
You can manage your online store from your mobile device with the Shopify app. The app features an online store overview page that allows you to edit your store, modify content, and publish your site from one screen. Using the mobile theme editor, you can update or edit your online store from anywhere, as well as create blog posts, add pages, update your menus, and manage your theme.
In the Shopify app, tap the Store icon to open your store overview. From here, you have access to the same features as the desktop version of your Shopify admin, including:
- Marketing and promotions
- Settings, both for the app and your Shopify account settings
Your active sales channels are accessible through the Store tab in the Shopify app. You can tap on any sales channel name for an overview of the sales channel, along with similar functionality to the desktop site. Each sales channel is different. Refer to the specific sales channel documentation for information on how to use the channel's features in the Shopify mobile app.
You can also add a new sales channel by tapping the Add channel button.
The Online Store section shows a preview of your currently active theme in both desktop and mobile form. To access your store details, tap the image of your online store.
Preview your online store
Tap the eye icon in the upper right corner of the Shopify app to open your store in a browser window. You can scroll through your store and tap on any links or products to open them. A bar along the bottom of your device screen has information about the store you're previewing, and displays the last save date of your store.
Tap the Actions button. From here, you can hide the action bar, close the preview, or share the preview. Tap on Share preview to get a preview link to your online store that is accessible to anyone you share the link with for two days. As this is a preview of your store, anyone using the link won't be able to make purchases or transactions using the preview link. You can copy the preview link to your device clipboard by tapping Copy link.
Tap Done to close the store preview and return to the Online Store page in the Shopify app.
