You can now add brand assets to your brand settings page and allocate them to multiple apps and sales channels simultaneously.

What does this mean?

There’s no need to set up brand assets separately at each location, saving you time and keeping your sales channels uniform and on brand!

How does it work?

Brand assets set up in the Brand settings page are compatible with Online Store sales channels, Shop sales channels and Shopify Email. 

For any brand asset(s) you have already stored in the Online Store sales channel, you can automatically add them to the brand settings page and distribute them amongst all your other sales channels.

Note: if you have a custom theme, there’s a chance your brand assets won’t be compatible. But don’t worry. You can still have your brand settings page configured to accept brand assets, you’ll just need some assistance from a Shopify developer.
