How to share an unpublished Shopify theme’s preview

Sometimes when you’re just testing things out or working on a particular thing in your theme you don’t want it visible to the public.

This is where “unpublished” or “offline” themes come in handy: they’re basically all the themes on your Shopify store that are not visible to the public.

However, what if you still want to share one of those unpublished themes with a friend, coworker or your developer? It’s possible and very easy to do.

Previewing the offline theme

  1. Firstly, from your Shopify admin, navigate to Online Store > Themes.
  2. Find the theme that you want to share and click on Actions > Preview.

  3. On the new page that appeared, wait for a second and at the bottom of the screen you’ll see a bar pop up.
  4. On this bar, click on the button Share Preview > Copy Link.
    Note: Make sure you click on this button, do not share the URL on the top of your page because it won’t work.
  5. Now just share the generated link with whoever you wish!
