Shopify Venture Theme Related Products

Shopify Venture Theme Related Products

A theme that was recently launched on the Shopify Theme Store is the Venture Theme which at first glance looks really great. It is one of the first themes that I have seen to offer a Mega Menu by default and the free price tag is always a good incentive for new clients who are just starting off. One of the big features that is missing from the Venture Theme is a “Related Products” section on the product page. Having related products on the bottom of your product page is a vital engagement tool where you can promote products and can help increase sales.


Why this was left out I am not exactly sure but it is something that we feel everyone who uses this theme is going to need. Perhaps, at a later date, and updated version of the Venture Theme will be released which has “Related Products”. For now you are going to have to manually update the themes files to make this work.


UPDATE: Shopify have introduced a feature called Sections which means this tutorial no longer works. Check out our new tutorial using sections 

IMPORTANT: This involves editing the theme files for your site and is a based on this original article. Knowledge of web design languages such as HTML, CSS, Javascript and Liquid is recommended. If you are not comfortable editing the themes files we can do this for you. Just use the Contact Us page or Live Chat.

  1. From your Shopify admin, click Online Store, then click Themes :
    Click Online Store then Themes
  2. Find the theme you want to edit, click the ... button, then click Edit HTML/CSS:
    Click Edit HTML CSS button
  3. Create a new snippet called related-products.
    • In the left-hand side pane, scroll down and left-click Snippets. Then, scroll further and click on the add a new snippet button:

    • Name your snippet “related-products”. Shopify will add the .liquid extension, so you don’t have to.
    • Click on related-products.liquid to open the snippet in the online code editor.
    • Copy the content of this bitbucket file  into your snippet, and click save.
  4. Include your snippet in product.liquid
    • Still on the Edit HTML/CSS page in your shop admin, click on product.liquid under Templates to open the product template in the online code editor. At line 141 of your product.liquid file, after the {% if collection %} command add the following code:
      {% include 'related-products' %}
