Capital’s footer is a rich customizable area. You can choose to show lots of store information or just a little.
When your store is viewed on a mobile device, the footer appears underneath the navigation menu when the menu button (☰) in the left-hand corner of each page.
You can also add profile links to all of your social media accounts from the Social media settings on the General settings tab in your theme editor.
Below is an image that shows all of the available social media icons in Capital.
You can assign any two navigation menus to be displayed in the footer using the Show menu 1 and Show menu 2 dropdown menus. You could create special footer-specific navigation menus, use some of your existing navigation menus (like the Departments menu), or both.
If you need more information about navigation menus, see Shopify’s article Menus and links.
Show shop contact information
Use the Show shop contact information checkbox to display the contact information from your shop’s account information on the Settings ► General area of your Shopify admin.
Show payment icons
Use the Show payment icons checkbox to display any payment methods that your shop accepts. Capital automatically grabs the list of payment methods you accept and displays them, so no other configuration is required.
See Shopify’s article Payment settings if you need more information about setting up payment methods.
