Grid's static pages

Shopify stores come with a page creation tool, which you can use to generate pages containing information that rarely changes, and that customers will use often, such as an  About page or a Contact page. You can add as many pages as you like to your store under  Online store>Pages, and configure where they appear under Online store>Menus.

There are also a few pages like the  Cart page that are generated and populated automatically, but which you can customize by navigating to them in the theme editor and finding their section settings. We'll cover the settings for these below.

Create a new page

From your Shopify admin, navigate to  Online store>Pages. Click the Add page button to open a new page template.

From here, you can enter the  Title and Content in the space provided, as well as set the Visibility and select a Page template. You’ll notice that Grid comes with two templates: a general page template (which you could use to create an FAQ  or return policy page), and a page.contact template (which creates a contact form designed specifically for your Contact page).

About page

Online shoppers these days aren't just interested in what they're buying—they're also interested in who they're buying it from. That's exactly what your about page is for: connecting with your customers, building trust, and establishing your brand.

You can create an about page the same way you would any other page: by going into your Shopify admin, navigating to  Online store>Pages and creating a new page titled "About us" or "Our story" or anything else you want!

Contact page

Adding a contact page to your store is a quick and easy way of engaging your customers. To create a contact page you will first need to create a new page. Scroll to the bottom right of the screen and select page.contact from the Template suffix dropdown menu. This will create a simple form on the page that will look something like this:

You can add a   Title and Content above the form in the page editor screen.

Cart page

The  Cart page is the first page customers see when they begin the checkout process. It shows a summary of the items and quantities they have added to their cart, and a total of how much it will cost them. In Grid, users can also add "special instructions" for the seller on this page. If you're trying to customize the Checkout process, you'll access those settings from the General settings tab.

ORDER NOTES

Enabling  Order notes will create a text box at the bottom of the cart page where customers can add "special instructions" about their order. You can add instructive or suggestive copy for this area in the Placeholder text field.

SHIPPING NOTE

Enabling Shipping note allows you to display text stating that the cart total does not include taxes or shipping (or something else below the total). If enabled, the Text you enter will appear just below your cart total.

SHIPPING RATE CALCULATOR

Grid also gives you the option to Enable shipping calculator—a tool that automatically fetches shipping rates on the cart page of your store, letting customers calculate their fees before completing checkout.

Click the  Enable box, then use the text box to set your Default country. If you're unsure of spelling, you can refer to the dropdown on the first page of the Shopify checkout process. Note that if a customer has logged in and configured their shipping address their country will automatically be used.
