"This app works like a charm and gets the job done without any problems. Support is also quick and fantastic, often going above and beyond what I expect of them."

Frequently asked questions

Why use an app?

Shopify does not currently provide an easy way to update premium themes. The current process requires you to manually upload a new .zip file and reconfigure all of your settings, including colors, fonts, images, etc.

Theme Updater facilitates the update process by providing a quick and easy way to upgrade your Out of the Sandbox, Pixel Union, or Archetype theme, without losing any of your configured theme settings -- a big time saver! In many cases, the app can also carry over simple changes that have been made directly to the theme code.

Which themes will it work with?

All Out of the Sandbox and most Pixel Union section-based themes are supported. Check if your theme is compatible here.

Will it transfer ALL my custom code changes?

Theme Updater will transfer over all shop settings that have been configured through the theme editor. It will also attempt to transfer over any tweaks or changes that have been made directly to the code. However if you or your developer have made extensive or complex customizations to the theme files themselves, then these will still need to be manually transferred to the updated theme.

How does the app work?

Please refer to the Theme Updater FAQs for step-by-step instructions on how to use the app to update your theme.
