How to create a Share Preview link using the Shopify Online Theme Editor
If you’re launching a new store or customizing a new theme in draft mode. Shopify allows you to create a share preview link without having to publish the theme. This is a great tool for getting feedback from anyone who needs to view your site before it's live or to view a concept version of the existing site.
For support, we recommend sending us a share preview link to help us view your store as it appears in draft mode. Here's how you can create a link:
Use the Theme actions option which is located at the bottom of the Theme Editor
In the Theme Editor, use the Theme actions option to display the actions menu. Choose Preivew. The theme editor will open a new window. Locate the "Share preview" button at the bottom right, use the button to generate a Share preview link.
Copy the link and send our support team the link URL.


Share preview links expire after a certain number of days and are randomly generated by Shopify.
If you're using a live published theme, the preview option will appear as View. This indicates you are currently on the live site. A Preview share link can only be created from a draft theme which is not published.
