Hey there!

My name is Alex, I'm a guru here at Shopify!

Sure thing!  Replacing your home page with a product page is something that could be done with custom coding - while with most themes you can't actually replace the homepage with a product page without custom coding, there's lots of options if you'd like for that product to be the first thing that your customers see upon visiting your site!

There's themes that were designed to showcase a single item, and allow for the homepage to function as a product page - if that might work for you, here's a few themes that you can check out:

If you'd prefer to stick with the theme that you have, I'd suggest reaching out to one of our third party experts for hire for help in creating that effect in your current theme!

If neither of those are optimal solutions, you could always use the link that you've provided here while you're marketing; if it's a bit long or unwieldy, you could use an URL shortening service, or links that go directly to the cart with a particular item pre-loaded - there's more info on doing so in our guide right over here!

Hope that's helped!  Please feel free to let me know, and you can always give us a call or start a live chat at any time.  We're open 24/7 for your convenience and always happy to assist!

Cheers,

Alex | Shopify Guru

Hi,

I know that this thread is old, but it was the first one coming up when I typed my question in Google search. Basically I had the same question as the author of this thread: how can I make the product page function as the home page so that customers would see it the first thing when they enter my store. I have managed to find the solution that does just that. Works for ANY theme. This is not my solution. It was suggested by the Shopify expert Tim in the thread I've found on the fifth page of Google! 

Here is the link:

I can see from other comments that it works so I'm really glad I found this tread! could you elaborate a bit more on where the "head tag" is located that would mean a lot I've been looking for a solution everywhere. Thank you!

Hello this works well and I can see how to swap out different pages, However, is there a way to use my current home page for the one I am shaping out? Within my main navigation, I am using a landing page from the navigation and making it the home page while I want to replace that page with the home page. 

 

Thanks
