Using the code snippet ensures your policies are updated automatically when you publish changes. 

Adding a policy as a regular Shopify page


Shopify’s legal page has built-in sections for a Privacy Policy, Refund Policy, Terms of Service agreement, and Shipping Policy. If you are adding a different type of policy — like a Cookie Policy or Disclaimer — or if you don’t want to use Shopify’s built-in legal sections, you can add your policies onto a regular Shopify page. 

 

Follow these steps to add a policy as a new page:

  1. Go to your Shopify admin dashboard, click Online Store, then Pages.

  2. Click Add Page.

  3. Title your page.

  4. Go to your Termly Dashboard and select your policy. Click Add to Website, select your preferred format, and click Copy To Clipboard.

  5. Return to your Shopify page.

    1. If using HTML Format, click <> (Show HTML), paste your HTML code, then click Save.

    2. If using a URL, type the text you would like to appear and click Insert Link. Paste your URL into the Link to box. Click Save. This will create a hyperlink on the page. 

    3. If using the code snippet, click <> (Show HTML), paste your code snippet, then click Save.

  6. You can now link to this page in your main menu, footer, or elsewhere on your Shopify site.

Adding policy page links to your menus

If you use Shopify’s legal pages, any saved policies will automatically be added as a link in the footer of your checkout page. You may also want to add your policies to other places, like your main menu. 

If you did not use Shopify’s built-in legal pages, you’ll need to follow these steps to add your policies as links to your footer or other menus.

To add a link to your policy to a menu, follow these steps:

  1. Go to your Shopify admin dashboard and select Online Store from the left-side menu.

  2. Click Navigation.

  3. Select the menu you would like to add a link to.

  4. Click + Add menu item.

  5. Give your menu item an appropriate name, like “Shipping Policy.”

  6. Under Link, select your policy page.

    1. If you used Shopify’s built-in legal pages, scroll down and select Policies. Your published Shopify policy pages will appear as options. Select which policy you would like to add. 

    2. If you used a regular Shopify page, scroll down and select Pages. Your published Shopify pages will appear as options. Select which page you would like to add.

  7. Click Add.

  8. Click Save menu.
