No matter the size of your Shopify store—be it a vast catalog of products or simply a tidy one product store—you will need to create some pages.
There are certain pages that every store needs—a homepage, an About Us page, a Contact page, a page detailing your return policies, an FAQ page, various collection pages, and of course, product pages.
Your pages represent significant milestones in your customer’s sales journey.
Along the way, they learn more about your brand, your products, and why it might be the right fit for them.
New Shopify stores come with a few standard pages ready to be edited for your needs, but they don’t anticipate what every store needs, and you will definitely need to start adding your own pages as you build out your store so you can start selling.
Once you have all your necessary pages in place, you will want to customize them to fit your brand and to help drive conversions for your store.
That’s where Page Builder comes in. But, we’ll talk more about that later.
First, let’s get into how to start adding pages to your Shopify store step-by-step.

To start building out your store, you need pages. All types of pages.
Let’s start with the most basic of pages before moving on to product and collections pages.
Here is how you can add generic pages to your Shopify store—be it your FAQ page or your Contact Us page.
First things first, let’s get into the cockpit. If it isn’t already in your bookmarks, just go to shopify.com and click Log in.
Now that you are in your Shopify dashboard go to Online Store along the left side to expand your options. Then click Pages.
If you’ve already got some pages created, this is where they will show up.
In the above screenshot, you’ll see the page I used in our guide to adding video to your Shopify store, which you should check out after finishing this post.
In the upper right corner of the page, you’ll find a handy little button beckoning you to Add page.
Click that button, and you’ll find yourself on the page creation screen.
Now you can start creating your new page.
By this point, you should know what page you are creating, but Shopify gives a few helpful suggestions in the title field (“e.g. Contact us, Sizing chart, FAQs”).
Once you’ve added these details, you can also edit how your page will show on search engines like Google.
Automatically, it will pull in your title and page content, but this allows more control of your SEO by letting you edit the title, meta description, and URL handle.
Finally, you can set whether your page is Hidden or Visible on your store.
Automatically, it will become visible once you save your page, but you could also set it to go visible later by clicking Hidden and adding the date you want it to go up.
You can also choose the theme template you want to use for the page based on your current Shopify theme and any apps that produce templates (like Shogun Page Builder).
Once finished, click Save. You’ve created a page, congrats!
Your product pages are where it all happens—they are either persuaded by your lovely images, thoughtful copy, and design decisions, or they move on.
On Shopify, each product you create gets a page automatically. So, creating product pages happens differently than your basic pages (covered above).
Here is how you create a product page on Shopify, step-by-step.
On your Shopify dashboard, go to Products in the menu along the left.
This is where all product data is kept and where you can keep track of inventory. For our purposes, we’ll just be adding a product and filling out its details.
In the upper right corner, you’ll find the Add product button. Click that thing, and you’ll be transported to the world of minute product details.
When you get to the product detail page, the first things you see are Title, Description, and Media.
Now that you have added the info that will make up most of your product page, it’s on to the little details about your product.
You can’t sell your products if you haven’t laid out all the little details. They help you organize your products, track your inventory, determine shipping costs, and much more.
Here are all the things you can add to your product data so you can start selling:
With all your product details added, click Save to add the product and its page to your store. Now, do this for all your products, and you’re set!

Just like with product pages, collection pages are created through the creation of a new product collection.
Collections are groups of products assembled based on your own criteria. That may be all products with the product tag “knits,” all your giftable products that are $50 or less, or a newly launched line of products.
Whatever you want.
They can be created by manually adding the products one by one or by automating the process based on certain rules you create.
Collection pages on Shopify show off a particular product collection. They include a title, a description, and an optional image (which acts as the background for the title in the header).
Instead of individually assessing numerous product pages, shoppers can look through your collection pages to narrow down what they want.
Adding a collection page on Shopify is easy, and we cover it in detail in our deep dive guide to Shopify collections.
In short, here are the steps:
When you are finished, your initial page could look something like this.
Of course, you can make it look so much better by customizing it to reflect your brand.
For instance, PANGAIA’s collection pages manage to be stunning and user-friendly while still remaining rather minimalistic.
It fits their brand and makes it easy to navigate straight to a desired product.
