As one of our trusted agency partners, we wanted to let you know first that new free themes are launching on January 27th. Find additional resources for building fully featured themes below and speak to your merchants today about the best option for their business.


What’s New? 


  • We are launching three free new themes built with Dawn. These themes will layer in significantly more customization settings and new sections onto the Dawn repo. All free Shopify themes will be pre-configured with default sections and customizations optimized for our top industry segments (apparel, home and decor, health and beauty, food and beverage). 


How to Update to Online Store 2.0


  • Online Store 2.0 is an end-to-end overhaul of how themes are built at Shopify. With sections on every page, app-powered blocks, flexible data storage, and robust developer tools, the process of building a theme on Shopify is easier than ever before. 
  • To unlock the full advantage of these improvements, migrate your themes to the updated requirements of Online Store 2.0 — the sooner you migrate, the sooner you can take advantage of the flexibility OS 2.0 provides.

Building on Free Themes


  • Dawn is Shopify’s first source-available reference theme with OS 2.0 flexibility and a focus on speed. 
  • Like Dawn, all free themes are accessible, performant, and a great starting point to customize on. 
  • Shopify is also committed to continuing its development of developer tooling and making Shopify the best place to build ecommerce themes.
