Getting started with Pacific

New to the Shopify platform?

If you're setting up a Shopify store for the first time, visit the Shopify help center for a thorough introduction.

Also visit the Getting Started: Shopify Basics page, which covers the essentials for setting up your store—including adding products, setting up collections, and creating a blog. These components of your store should be in place to get the most out of your theme.

Upload Pacific

If you purchased the theme directly from the Shopify Theme Store, your theme will be automatically installed when you log into your Shopify admin.

If you purchased your theme directly from, you'll receive your theme as a .zip file named something like Download this zip file, but don't unzip it. Instead, go to your Shopify admin dashboard, then Online Store > Themes. Select Upload theme to locate and upload your theme file from your device.

Upload theme pop-up with Pacific theme added

Your new theme will show up below your current theme as a Draft. At this point, it is installed, but not published.

To get started with configuring settings, adding content, and customizing the theme features, take a look at the next article on using the Theme editor.
