Shopify is insanely getting popularity around the world, and when it comes to building the storefront, we look for the Shopify theme that could fulfill our needs. Merchants need to cover many things from the color scheme that matches the brand and products or smooth and flawless customers experience. Shopify theme development process also involves following the Shopify LIQUID HTML coding standard. One of the latest changes was related to Shopify sections which would bring better UX during Shopify store building process. SellerSmith team took seriously on solving merchant’s problems and excited to introduce you Nivellia - Shopify section based theme coming with 03 default styles.

Nivellia Shopify theme has been built with 03 color schemes naming as Black, Nudy, and Neon. Each color scheme variation will match certain product niches giving Shopify experts more freedom to create the website for a client. SellerSmith team tried not to design in the “niche way,” so they avoid narrowing the customer's market. The functionality across 03 Shopify themes styles are the same: so it will save your time on “learning curve.” Designing Shopify theme is also good to make the boundary with Shopify apps. That also means that each built - in theme feature is considered as the part of the theme not related to Shopify Apps.
