Choose Themes for Your Square Online Site

Note: Access more themes by upgrading your Square Online site.

With themes in Square Online, efficiently build a beautiful website that will engage your buyers. A theme is a template website that helps you visualize the way your site can look, feel, and function when first getting started. Use any theme as a foundation to further build upon so you can express your brand identity in a visual and interactive way.

Note: At this time, themes are exclusively available to a subset of new Square Online sellers. We are continually working to expand availability, so be sure to check back later for updates.

Choose a Theme

When first getting started with Square Online, you’ll choose a theme for your website and customize it in the editor. The theme can’t be changed once selected, but you can always change any part of your site after selecting one. To customize multiple design elements at once after choosing a theme, learn more about choosing styles for your Square Online site.

Our Square Online themes are designed to make it easy for anyone to create a great-looking site tailored to their needs. You can change the images, text, or arrangement of any content as you see fit. What you're really looking for when choosing a theme isn't the imagery, but the layout and how the content is arranged on the page.

Customize Your Theme

Once you’ve chosen a theme, you can customize it in several ways. All colors, fonts, shapes, images, individual elements, and section and page layouts can be changed at any time. Learn more about designing and customizing your Square Online site for more information on all of your site design options.

Note: Although you can publish your website with our placeholder content, we highly recommend adding your own to make your site stand out. 

Items

When choosing a theme, each one will show example items for illustrative purposes. You’ll then see placeholder items in the editor until you add your own. Learn more about adding items and categories to Square Online.

Images

When choosing a theme, each one will show example images for illustrative purposes. You’ll then see the option to add your own in the editor. Learn more about images and backgrounds in Square Online to start updating them.

Text

When choosing a theme, each one will show example text for illustrative purposes. You can then add your own text once you get to the editor. Learn more about adding text to Square Online.

Colors and fonts

Each theme will include beautiful colors and fonts, but you can customize them at any time to match your brand. Learn more about choosing colors and choosing fonts for your Square Online site.

Sections and pages

Each theme will include sections and pages you can update at any time. Learn more about sections and how to create pages and navigation in Square Online.

Change Your Theme

It isn’t possible to change the theme of an existing website, but you can still create a new website directly from your Square Online Overview page to choose a new theme. Learn more about managing multiple sites in Square Online for information on adding a new site to your account.

Note: Remember that if you simply want to change how the entire site looks, you can always update multiple design elements at once by updating the site style. In the site editor, select Site design > Change site style to get started. It's much like choosing a new theme minus the example content (like items and images) when you first create a Square Online site. The example content is included when choosing a theme for illustrative purposes, and to inspire a design that suits your brand, business type, or purpose.
