Installing a new theme makes live changes immediately. This can be abrupt for your customers currently using your eCom store.
Installing a new theme has the following effects:
- Theme-related settings - All theme-related settings that you previously configured for your store. From your eCom admin, select Design. Select Edit theme on the right-hand side of the screen. All information here will be overwritten by the default settings of the new theme.
- Theme prices - When installing a new theme, you only pay for the theme that your store is actively using. For example, if you are paying $12 per month for your old theme, and then install a new theme that costs $10 per month, you'll only pay $10 each month as soon as you install the new theme.
