Best practices

Footer help should:

  • Be positioned at the bottom of the interface
  • Provide links to help that’s related to the experience on the screen
  • Not be used to promote features or provide explanations for how something works
  • Almost always provide a link to help documentation except in the rare case that a blog post or other type of content does a better job of walking the merchant through how to use the product or feature
  • Never link to information designed to upsell the merchant

Content guidelines

Footer help

By default, footer help should link to information in the Shopify Help Center and should follow this content pattern:

  • Learn more about {X}.

In the rare case that footer help links to a resource outside of the Shopify Help Center, it’s important to specify the destination by following this pattern:

  • Learn more about {X} at the Shopify blog.

Links should be:

Clearly labeled: Merchants should not need to guess where they’ll end up if they click on an action link. Never use “click here” as a link because it doesn’t set expectations about what’s next.
