The new Dawn theme was designed due to the new Online Store 2.0 of Shopify and its core focus is to optimize speed and performance. Luckily Because is perfect for Shopify's new theme and the mobile-first direction we are headed in.

Shopify has had so many updates in the past few months alone from new product releases to new themes. But of course, the goal always remains the same, to make ecommerce easier and more accessible to everyone. This ties in perfectly with Because and our goal of making product pages better for all Shopify merchants.

What is Shopify's new theme Dawn? 

Shopify just released an important update this summer with their new Shopify theme Dawn. The new theme is important because it's now Shopify's default reference theme built for easy navigation and focused on a mobile-first experience. This is super important considering 3 out of 4 users say they buy stuff on their mobile phones because it saves time.

It's important for anyone coming onboard to Shopify to already be set up for success through mobile commerce. It's estimated that by 2024, mobile commerce will hit $488 billion in sales, or 44% of all e-commerce transactions, nearly almost half. Absolutely wild. 🤯 

According to Shopify, "Dawn is Shopify's reference theme, built for performance, flexibility, and ease of use. It uses Online Store 2.0 - features, including JSON templates, which support app blocks and sections on all pages."

As Dawn becomes the default theme for development stores, it's perfect for anyone wanting to test out apps, different themes, or creating a Shopify account for a client. "Any development stores created after June 29, 2021, use Dawn as their default theme."

Does this affect my Because banner? 

Nope! Not at all. Since Because doesn't actually rely on the Theme format files, you shouldn't notice any changes with your Banner! 

The new Dawn theme was designed due to the new Online Store 2.0 of Shopify and its core focus is to optimize speed and performance.

Luckily Because is perfect for Shopify's new theme and the mobile-first direction we are headed in. Because banners are optimized for any Shopify store and designed to be displayed perfectly on mobile, in addition to tablets and desktops.

Check out all the inspiration on how your banners can be customized either through custom placement in your store (on your product page, collection page, or Home page) or just get some inspo. 🤩

 

Are there any Because users on Shopify's Dawn theme? 

Yes! We have some amazing power users using Because on the new Dawn theme. Cupiditates, for example, is an accessories brand using Shopify's Dawn theme and Because for their banners. They let their customers know their shipping information and any special deals on their products. 

How flawless is this product page?! 🤩
