Upgrading to 2.0
How do you upgrade to Online Store 2.0?
To take advantage of the new features, you might want to consider transitioning your store to Online Store 2.0 to stay ahead of competitors and keep up with your business’s growing demands.
There are several methods to do this:
- Upgrading your existing theme, if your theme offers an updated Online Store 2.0 version
- Migrating to a new Online Store 2.0 theme
- Manually migrating your current theme and adding Online Store 2.0 functionality to the new architecture.
Can you upgrade to Online Store 2.0 yourself?
Unlike other updates, the Online Store 2.0 update can’t be automatically applied to your store. If you’re comfortable with editing HTML, CSS, and Liquid then it’s safe to upgrade your own theme to Online Store 2.0.
If coding’s not your thing, and let’s face it most business owners are more focused on running their business; then our team of Shopify Experts are here to help upgrade your current theme to Online Store 2.0 by migrating your current theme templates to the new architecture.
Choose from free themes like Shopify’s DAWN or a range of other paid 2.0 themes that align with your brand.UPGRADE TO 2.0 NOW

Upgrading your theme can be a complex process. You’ll need to consider whether your current theme meets your needs before deciding to update your theme or move to a new theme.
To make sure an Online Store 2.0 upgrade is the right choice for your business, we firstly analyse your current store, map out what features may be currently lacking and what new features could really help your brand scale and grow.
