Each client expects to have an opportunity to contact the seller in order to clarify any issue on specific goods or services. To do that you need to add contact form to Shopify store.

This is an easy process that any Shopify user can perform on the basis of a few nuances. Read below to find out what they are.

A modern website cannot function properly without a contact form. It is an integral part of any site, regardless of its subject matter. Through the contact form you get feedback, complaints, and suggestions from visitors that will help you make the sale and purchase process more convenient. This is, undoubtedly, one of the best ways for the Shopify store owner to better communicate with his/her customers.

What you should do to add Shopify contact form

It is quite easy to add this feature to your Shopify store. All themes have a Shopify custom contact form, which you can apply to the pages you create. You can do it in two ways.

Step 1: special fields form setting

1. Create Shopify contact page

In order to add a Shopify contact form to your online store, you need to create a contact page. If you create a page without any content, then just the contact form and nothing else will appear on the page.

To create a contact page:

  1. You need to go to the Shopify admin panel and select Online Store> Pages.
  2. Click Add page.
  3. In the Title field, enter the name of your contact page, for example, “Contact us” or “Get in touch”.
  4. In the Content field, add any text that you want to display above the contact form. It is desirable that the text should be concise, friendly and calling for action. Here you can specify your contact details, for example, the address of your store, phone numbers, etc.
  5. In the Template block, select page.contact in the Template suffix drop-down menu:
  6. And click Save.

Now your contact form will be on the contact page. You can add a contact page in the navigation menu so that your visitor always could have access to it. All messages from the contact form are sent to the email address specified in the general settings of your Shopify store. If necessary, you can easily change this address in your admin panel.

2. Add a field to the contact form

Often, there are not enough standard fields of the contact form, and you may need to collect more detailed user information when working with your clients. In this case, you can add more fields to your contact form. To do that, you will need to add these fields in the code.

To add additional fields to the contact form in the code you need to do the following :

  1. In your Shopify admin panel go to the Online Store> Themes.
  2. Next, select the theme you want to edit, and in the Actions drop-down menu, click Edit code.
  3. Now you have the entire list of your theme files. In the Templates folder, you must select the page.contact.liquid file.
  4. The code of contact us form for Shopify is inside the following tags:
    {% form 'contact'%}
    and
    {% endform%}
    Each theme is different, but approximately it looks like this:

    In the rectangle, a form field is selected for the name, for instance: contact.form.name. Below you can see: contact.form.email, contact.form.phone, contact.form.message
  5. You can add code for your additional fields before, after or between the existing fields, depending on your preferences. The code you add will depend on the type of form field you want to create.
  6. After adding the fields you need, remember to click Save.

3. Select Shopify contact form field types

Below you can see the examples of form fields,  so you can add a contact form to Shopify as well as change the form fields to your needs.
