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 than uploading a regular Shopify theme.
When you receive your purchase email, you'll need to click the link provided in the email to download Flex.
The theme will download as a zip file called 'unzip-me-first.zip'. You'll need to unzip this file, which will then create a folder called Welcome to Flex.
Within the Welcome to Flex folder, you will see 13 zip files included:
There will be a main flex.zip file, as well as zip files named after the current 12 demo shops (ex: flex-swagger.zip).
If you want to use a particular demo shop as a starting point, follow the image import instructions above 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!
If you're just looking to start fresh with a blank canvas without any placeholder content, simply upload the default flex.zip file to the Shopify admin.
Alternatively, you can use the Demo Shop Import Feature available through our Theme Updater App to apply one of the 12 demo shops to your Flex theme.
