How can I create a downloadable pdf of my blog posts? I want my customers to be able to download a pdf. I read a few threads but didn't see an up-to-date answer. Thanks for your help! Winfried (www.blanda-beauty.com)

Hi Winfried, 

Nick here from Shopify. 

Great question. There is a way to create a downloadable file to your website which you can then attach to your blog where customers can download it. While it may not be a PDF exactly it's the closest thing natively within Shopify for something like this. Shopify does also have a guide going through all the steps on how to create a downloadable file which you can see here

Alternatively, if you were set on it being a PDF file specifically you could look into reaching out to a Shopify Expert directly about something like this being custom made for you. 

Hope this helps and points you in the right direction for best next steps. Don't hesitate to ask should you have any other questions about anything. 

All the best, Nick

Hi Nick, thanks for your answer. The link you included points to a help article called "uploading files to your website". Is this what you meant with the closest thing to a pdf? If yes, I'm sorry but i don't see how this helps me to create a downloadable pdf or pdf like file.

Hi Winfried, 

Apologies, maybe I wasn't very clear in my first response. You can add a downloadable file to your website, whether it is a product page, collection page, homepage, or a blog post which you are most interested in doing. 

Once the file has been uploaded you can make it a clickable link for your blog visitors to download similar to how it would be for a PDF file which is what I meant, by close to a PDF, but exactly the same. 

I hope this helps explain and make it more clear for you. If not, don't hesitate to let me know. 

All the best, Nick

Did you find a solution to turn a blog post into a PDF? or even an app that can insert itself into a blog post with a fancy button that says "download post as PDF" ?

kind regards

It wouldn't be hard to manually do it per blog post. Most blogs could be converted to a PDF within 1 minute with a copy-and-paste. Microsoft Word or OpenOffice can turn word files into PDFs.
