Build Shopify Themes using Bootstrap.

Bootstrap for Shopify Screenshots

Just updated for Bootstrap 3.3.6!

“Being familiar with Bootstrap made designing my Shopify store so much easier with this theme.

I could use all the code I was familiar with and could change the layout of my store to fit my vision exactly.

Plus, it’s well-documented so I knew exactly where I was!”

— Gavin Walsh,

Bootstrap for Shopify has done the hard work so that you don't have to.

Are you a designer or developer working with Shopify?

Are you just getting started with Shopify, and want to make things a bit easier?

Your time is valuable — you want to spend it focused on building your store's unique personality and experience.

You don't want to spend hours battling theme templates, snippets, and dealing with Shopify's quirky edge cases.

Wouldn't it be easier to use a widely popular, extensively maintained framework to get to the important stuff faster?

Well, if you hadn't already guessed, that's exactly what Bootstrap for Shopify delivers.

Which licence is best for me?

If you're just looking to get your feet wet with Shopify and Bootstrap, or want to take Bootstrap for Shopify for a test drive, I'd recommend starting out with an Affiliate Licence — you can always upgrade to a Single or Unlimited Licence later.

If you'd prefer not to use an Affiliate Licence (for example, if you've already signed up for Shopify), jump in to a Single Licence. If you later decide you'd like to upgrade to an Unlimited Licence, you'll only pay the difference for the upgrade.

If you'd like to sell the themes you build with Bootstrap for Shopify (on the Shopify Theme Store, to multiple clients, or otherwise), you'll need an Unlimited Licence.

How long will support / updates last for?

I provide email support for anyone using the framework — unless you're emailing me ten times a day, I'm happy to answer any and all questions! Bootstrap for Shopify will be updated as Bootstrap is updated — the current plan is to provide free updates for all future 2.x and 3.x versions.

What if I'm not satisfied?

It's the old mantra - I'm not happy unless you're happy! If you've purchased Bootstrap for Shopify but find it lacking, I'll do everything I can to resolve your issues. However, if that doesn't work out, I'll refund you the full purchase price.

How customisable is it?

Shopify templates and other frameworks often come with custom HTML, CSS and Javascript you don't want, need or understand. Bootstrap for Shopify is 100% vanilla Bootstrap, with no added styles or markup other than those essential to operating on the Shopify platform.

Don't want to use jQuery? Not a problem. Got your own custom Bootstrap build? Drop it in.

Why are you charging for this?

Assuming your time is valuable (and I think it is!), anything that saves you a few hours or more on your next project can be a huge benefit. Bootstrap for Shopify takes a lot of the drudge work out of getting a clean slate ready for you to work your magic.

Moreover, you also get a framework designed for building clean & maintainable Shopify Themes, with a large number of helpful snippets, patterns and techniques. That's not even mentioning the really helpful Getting Started Guide, which will put you right at home building with Bootstrap and Shopify.
