How Instant and Shopify work together
When you start working with Instant, it’s good to know how it works together with Shopify.
As a page builder, Instant empowers you to build eCommerce pages and then it adds these pages to your Shopify theme so they appear in your online store.
You need to connect Shopify and Instant to allow the pages you created in Instant to become part of your online store. At its core, the connection works by giving Instant access to some of your Shopify data, allowing you to create new pages in Instant. The connection then puts the pages you created into Shopify’s theme to be used in the online store.
What this means is that:
When you connect Instant to Shopify, nothing will change initially.
Instant only adds pages and page elements to your Shopify theme when you publish.
Because Instant pages are added to your theme, they are the same as pages created in Shopify.
Instant pages don't impact site speed.
All Shopify integrations, like a custom checkout, product reviews, or sizing charts, still work.
Likewise, your Shopify analytics will work on pages designed with Instant.
