How do I change the background of my store?

With BigCommerce, it is easy to customize your store, including the background. You can either have a color or image as the background to your store, and it is easy to find where to customize this. Please note that you will need to have some CSS knowledge to complete this, especially if you want to use an image. Please visit this page if you would like to learn about changing a background with CSS.

1.) Login to your store's control panel.
2.) Click on Design.


3.) Click on the Template Files tab.


4.) Scroll down to the Styles folder and click the plus sign next to it.


5.) Find the css file that is for the color of your template. In this example, mine is the gray.css. This will change depending on the template you have chosen.

6.) Click Edit for that css file.


7.) Find the background line. There are two different parts of the tag: a color and an image.

Background color:


Background image:


8a.) If you wish to change the background color, simply change the hex code for the color.


8b.) If you wish to change the background image, simply change the URL (and it's repeat status) to the URL for the image you wish to use. (In this case, I used the same image filename, but just changed it in Photoshop, and then uploaded it to my FTP drive.)


9.) When you are done making changes, click the Save button.
