The Flex theme is the newest and most robust theme built by Out of the Sandbox. We've built Flex so that you can fast-track a shop setup based on one of the Flex demo shops. Because of this, once you've purchased the theme, the uploading instructions are slightly different from your average Shopify theme.
Download the Flex File from Purchase Email
When you receive your purchase email, click the provided link to download Flex.
Access Welcome to Flex Folder
The theme will download as a ZIP file called unzip-me-first.zip. You'll need to unzip this file, which creates a folder called Welcome to Flex.
There are 14 ZIP files in the Welcome to Flex folder.
There will be a main flex.zip file, as well as zip files named after the current 13 demo shops (ex: flex-swagger.zip).
Start with Demo Images
If you want to use a particular demo shop as a starting point, follow the image import instructions and then upload your demo shop ZIP of choice to Shopify. The theme will install with all of the sections, content, and placeholder images as seen in that demo shop.
Start with Default Theme
Start fresh with a blank canvas, so to speak, without any placeholder content by uploading the default flex.zip file to the Shopify admin.
Demo Shop Import Feature
Alternatively, you can use the Demo Shop Import Feature available through our Theme Updater App to apply one of the 13 demo shops to your Flex theme.
