If you have a brand new EKM online shop and you have uploaded your logo, it’s essential that your Theme’s colour scheme matches that of your logo and your brand aesthetic.

[remember] The number of colours you can edit will depend on what Theme you are using on your EKM online shop. More modern, responsive Themes have more scope for changing colours, whereas older Themes with a separate mobile template will have limited options available.

This chosen Theme can then be applied to your live shop. [/remember]
