Shopify allows you to use different page design templates for different products. This feature allows you to customize your product page design with variants based on product groups, features, and other factors.
Many Shopify store owners wish to stand out different aspects depending on the product or category. They can realize such wishes by creating templates with different layouts according to the aims for each product. Another advantage is that you can perform A/B testing by changing the templates among similar products.
Do you use such helpful template feature appropriately? In this article, we will show you how to customize the page design for each product group in your Shopify store with the template feature.
This article is recommended for those;

As mentioned at the beginning of this post, the template feature has tremendous advantages, such as increasing conversion rates and conducting A/B testing relatively easy. Let’s make full use of the template feature to realize higher conversion!
By the way, “EZ importer” and “Matrixify” are also useful Shopify apps for order management and other bulk editing tasks. We have also introduced them as “useful apps for order management” in a previous article. Please read this article as well if you would like to learn more.
