Creating a detailed size chart for your Shopify store is a powerful tool for providing a good customer experience. A size chart helps ensure that your customers order the correctly sized products, which reduces returns and disputes due to sizing issues.

Adding a size chart on Shopify is a straightforward process, but it requires paying close attention to details to make sure your chart is clear, comprehensive, and accurate. In this article, we will walk you through the steps to set up a professional size chart on your Shopify store.

Understanding Shopify Themes

Shopify themes are the templates that determine the look and feel of your online store. They form the skeleton of your website, dictating layout, design, and functionality.

Free vs Paid Shopify Themes

There are various types of themes available on Shopify, which can be broadly categorized into free and paid themes.

Free Themes: Shopify offers a handful of free themes that are designed to cater to a wide range of businesses. These themes are very basic in design, but they are fully functional and can be used to set up a store quickly and at no extra cost. Examples of free themes include Debut, Simple, and Narrative.

Paid Themes: For more advanced features and unique designs, Shopify offers a range of paid themes, often created by third-party designers. These themes are designed to cater to specific industries and styles, with added features and customization options. Examples of paid themes include Ella, Shella, and Avone.

Choosing the right theme for your online store depends on various factors, including your budget, your industry, and your design preferences. It’s important to remember that while a theme forms the foundation of your store’s design, it can be customized extensively to suit your brand.

Shopify 2.0 vs Vintage Themes

In 2020, Shopify launched the concept of “Online Store 2.0,” which was a significant upgrade to its theme architecture. This update was aimed at making Shopify themes more flexible and customizable. Compared to the older “vintage” themes, Online Store 2.0 themes have several advantages.

Here’s a table to illustrate the key differences between Shopify 2.0 and Vintage themes:

FeatureShopify 2.0 ThemesVintage Themes
Sections EverywhereYes, sections can be used on every pageNo, sections are limited to the homepage
Master PagesYes, allowing you to set a default template for your pagesNo, each page needs to be customized individually
App BlocksYes, allowing you to add functionality to your theme without codingNo, adding functionality usually requires coding
MetafieldsYes, allowing for more detailed product informationLimited support for metafields

As seen in the table above, Shopify 2.0 themes offer a higher degree of customization and flexibility, making it easier for store owners to create a unique and feature-rich online store.

How to Customize the Size Chart

After you’ve created your size chart and added it to your product pages, you might want to make some customizations to ensure it fits seamlessly into your site’s aesthetic and is as user-friendly as possible. Shopify provides some customization options natively, but with third-party apps like Kiwi Sizing, you have even more control over the look and feel of your size chart. Here are some of the ways you can customize your size chart.

  • Changing the Chart Layout: Both Shopify and Kiwi Sizing allow you to modify the layout of your size chart. You can choose whether the chart appears in a pop-up, on the product page, or in a separate page entirely. This flexibility lets you integrate the size chart in a way that aligns with your store’s design and doesn’t disrupt the customer’s browsing experience.
  • Adding Images and Text: Both Shopify and Kiwi Sizing provide options for adding images and text to your size chart. You could add a diagram illustrating how to take measurements or include a note about your store’s return policy for sizing issues.

  • Modifying Table Contents: You can customize the contents of the size chart table to better fit your products. For instance, you can add or remove rows and columns, change the text in the table, and adjust the order of sizes.

  • Adjusting the Table Style: You can change the style of the table, including the color, border style, and text formatting. This is particularly useful if you want the size chart to match your store’s branding.

  • Setting Product Matching Conditions: With Kiwi Sizing, you can set product matching conditions so that the appropriate size chart is displayed for each product. This feature is especially useful if your store sells a variety of items that require different sizing information.
