Integrating Apps with Stencil Themes

Most apps currently available in the app marketplace work with Stencil and will require no extra code. Apps that handle backend store functions such as QuickBooks Online and ShipperHQ work natively with your theme.

However, some apps may have extra steps to make them compatible. For apps that require additional code, instructions should be included in the setup. If instructions are not provided, use the suggestions below for best placement.


Apps That Have Scripts

App integrations that affect the storefront, such as live chat or apps that provide analytics, will require their scripts to be placed in certain parts of the theme such as the footer or header. The Script Manager, found in Storefront › Script Manager, can be used to inject code into specific pages on your store.

Note that site verification codes (i.e. meta tags) used to verify your site by service providers like Google, Bing or Pinterest should still be placed in the Google Analytics tab.

Apps That Need an Edited Theme

Some apps may require their code be placed onto specific pages. The Stencil Theme Editor can be used to access the specific template files using an in-browser editor. See Editing Stencil Theme Files for more information.
