Can I Add Custom Code To Shopify?

With Shopify being one of the largest eCommerce platforms on the market, it makes sense that they'd include the ability to add custom code.

To answer the question. Yes, you can add custom code to Shopify. However, it’s important to note that the platform does not provide any support for custom code. This means that if you run into any issues with your custom code, you’ll need to troubleshoot them yourself.

However, with caveats. Shopify does not allow you to add any code that could negatively affect the performance of your store or the security of your customers’ data. This means that while you can add custom code, it must adhere to the Shopify platform’s rules and regulations.

If you’re comfortable working with code, you can add custom code to your Shopify store in a few different ways. The simplest way is to use the Shopify Theme Editor, which allows you to add custom code directly to your theme files. This is a great option for making small changes or tweaks to your store’s design.
