So I just started using shopify. When I go to my online store page there are 2 themes listed. One says Saffron which is free, and the other one is below it, which is one that I purchased. I"m only using the purchased one so I'm trying to delete the free one.

For some reason there isn,t an option to delete the Free theme when I click the icon with the 3 dots. There is only an option to delete the paid one. How do I get rid of the free theme if there isn't a delete option?

Hey Jason,

David here, Shopify Guru!

The reason you cannot delete this free theme is because it is currently published. Only unpublished themes can be removed.

Published theme:

Unpublished themes below:

You can have up to 20 themes installed on your store so there is really no need to delete the free theme, incase you want to use it at a future date.

Hope that helps, feel free to drop us a line at support@shopify.com if you have any other questions :)
