One of the many things that I love about Shopify is how they are always coming out with new features that are helpful for any small business owner. Recently Shopify launched Linkpop.com for an easy way to set up your very own “Link in Bio” page.
The best part is you can connect your shop and quickly link your products within Shopify.

Let’s start with the basics – what is a “Link in Bio” page?
The name “Link in Bio” comes from the phrase that is always used within a caption on social media. For example “See the full post on the blog. Link in bio.”
Before you would have to update the link in your bio everytime you wanted to share something new – and only have the option of sharing one link at a time.
A “Link in Bio” page is a simple landing page where you can include all of your links – such as your Facebook page, blog posts, YouTube channel, etc, shop link, etc. This makes it easy for any brand to share the multiple places you can follow along. It always makes sharing all the amazing content you create without having your audience have to dig around your website or social media to find it.
Do you need a Shopify account to use Linkpop.com?
Nope! This tutorial focuses on the Shopify part of getting started with Linkpop – but you can still use it without a Shopify store. And the best part – it’s free!
If you do have a Shopify store, there is definitely an advantage to using Linkpop as it easily integrates your shop’s products so you can quickly link products. A definite time saver.
Check out our step-by-step tutorial showing you how you can easily set up your Link in Bio page with Linkpop and Shopify. Video not your thing? Scroll down and read our full tutorial.
Step 1: Create your Linkpop account
To get started go to linkpop.com and you’ll just sign in with your Shopify login. If you don’t have a Shopify account that’s fine too! Just select the “Sign up free” tab and create an account to get started.
Step 2: Setup your page info
If this is your initial login, you’ll first see the “Page Info” section where you will enter your profile page URL, add a photo, profile name, and a quick description.
When selecting a profile name, make sure to double check it as this cannot be changed once it’s selected.
The profile photo that is selected will be the top image people will see when they visit your Link in Bio page. For the profile description include a short bio about your brand.
Click on “Create Profile”. You’ll then see a preview of how your Link in Bio page will look.
You can of course always go back to edit the photo and description at any point. Just go to “Profile” and scroll down to the “Page Info” section.
Step 3: Adding links to your Linkpop page
Click on “Add Link”. Here you will enter a title and the full URL. This can be used for any link you want to share — such as a blog post, about page, video tutorials, interviews, etc.
Each link allows you to upload a thumbnail. I would suggest resizing the image to 400px x 400px. You can of course skip the thumbnail option if you prefer, but I would suggest using a thumbnail so it adds a personalized feel to the page.
Select “Publish” once you are done to save your changes.
Step 4: Adding product links from Shopify
Next, let’s connect your shop to the Linkpop account, that way we can include Shoppable links. For this part you do need to have a Shopify store.
Click on “Add Shoppable Links”. Select the Shopify store you want to connect to and select it.
Select “Add Sales Channel” to approve the connection.
Now that the Shopify store is connected, select “Add Shoppable Links”. Click on “Browse Products” to search your Shopify catalog and select the product you want to feature.
Once you select the product, it will automatically link the products from your Shopify store. This feature will also automatically add the product name and a photo. You can always shorten or change the name if you prefer.
Select “Publish” once you are done to save your changes.
Step 5: Customize the look
Next we’ll select the “Profile” tab. Here you can customize the font and color scheme of your “Link in bio” page.
Within the “Primary Font” dropdown, select the font you would like to use for the page. You can also select the background color and font color to match with your branding.
Your changes will appear in the preview above. Select “Publish” to save your changes.
Step 6: Adding social media links
On the “Social Media” tab, you can enter your Shopify store’s URL along with any other social media platforms that you use. For the social media fields you just need to include the handle, not the full URL.
Select “Publish” to save your changes.
Step 7: Sharing your Link in Bio page
Once you add all your links and customize your new “Link in Bio” page you are ready to share it. Just copy the URL for the page. It will be something like this:
Add it to your Instagram, TikTok, or any other social media bio to make sharing your content and products easy.
