When you upload the file and receive the message is a too large file, please refer to the following solution:

1.Download the theme from ThemeForest Download and unzip it on your computer.

To unzip a file:

- To unzip a file on a Mac, double-click it.

- To unzip a zipped file on a PC,  Right-click the zipped file and select Extract All. By default, files are extracted to the location as the original zipped file. Use the Select a Destination window to save the files somewhere else.

Depending on the theme you download, packages inside it will be different. you may see following items inside:

  • documentation: theme manual folder
  • theme-package (or Upload, upload) : contains the theme's installation zip files.
  • file-upload: contains file with links to images, video is used in our demo.
  • pre-setting: contains the sample data file settings-data.json as our demo. In the case of many styles (child-theme), this folder contains samples data according to the styles that you can install.


  • upload: contains the theme's installation zip files.
  • documentation: theme manual folder

2. From your Shopify admin, go to Online Store > Themes.

3. In the More themes area, click Upload theme.

4. From the Upload theme window, click Choose File to select the .zip file that you want to upload.
