Hi all so i was wondering whether it was possible to set one of the shopify pages as the main homepage for the website? i.e instead of having the home page you start your theme with be the landing page could i set a different page as the landing page? or could i possibly assign a page template to the landing page / home page? im new to liquid so im not too sure how to do this

Hello Korrupt,
I don't think that's possible in Shopify. 

We had the same issue. After connecting with their experts, we found that functionality is not available, like how in Wordpress you can choose which page you want to showcase as homepage, its not possible to have the same functionality in Shopify.

Else you have to hire a Shopify Expert, which is pretty weird. as on our website, we dont have control to show which page we want to know as homepage/landingpage and on top of that we need to pay Extra to get that basic functionality.

Yes, this is a terrible/inexcusable gap in the Shopify site admin experience. I created a staging home page and now can't switch or assign the home page to this page. Now I have to duplicate this page on the existing home page! Sooo bad!!

There’s a workaround, you could setup a redirect from your home page url to your landing page
