Build custom storefronts

Using Shopify's developer tools, you can create the following types of customer-facing experiences:

  • Build custom websites: Personalize the frontend of your website and build a custom storefront with the JS Buy SDK. In this case, you'd replace the online store channel and Liquid themes with a custom storefront built using the languages and tools that you prefer.
  • Add a buy button: Embed customizable Shopify user interface (UI) components using the Buy Button library, such as product listings and shopping carts, directly into any website.
  • Add commerce to your mobile app: Build shopping experiences into your iOS and Android apps by using the Android Buy SDK and iOS Buy SDK.
  • Turn gamers into customers: Build shopping experiences into games with the Unity SDK.
