How to add tabs or drop-down accordions in product descriptions

Sometimes the description takes up a lot of rooms and looks bulky. Tabs or dropdown accordions can help you to create separate sections to better organize your product description. From there, customers will easily find specific information quickly by just clicking on the items they are interested. 

In this article, you will learn how to add tabs or drop-down accordions to product descriptions.

  • Step 1: Prepare your product content and insert it into the Description of the corresponding product inside your Shopify admin > Product > All products


  • Step 2: Highlight the title text and change it to a Heading 3 style from the font menu. The Heading 3 title will be converted to the tab's heading and the tab's content will be everything writtent between your Heading 3 titles.

Common types of information for tabs are description, ingredients, nutritional information, instructions, or how to use, about the brand, reviews, features or product specifications, shipping, and returns.

  • Step 3: Save the changes you made to your product.
