Parallax is a stunning new Shopify theme featuring a long-format home page with unparalleled flexibility and control.
The term parallax refers to a scrolling technique which involves a background image moving at a slower rate than the foreground, creating a 3D effect as you scroll down the page. The Parallax theme features up to 6 featured images on the home page that utilize this technique, which enables a dynamic presentation of your products.
The Parallax Shopify theme is adaptable for single product shops to purchase directly from home page and then proceed straight to checkout. For larger inventory shops, you can feature several featured collections and products on the home page as well as enable a sidebar for advanced navigation and filtering.
We've added the ability to add products to your cart without refreshing the page, commonly referred to as AJAX Add to Cart. You can proceed to update your cart from the dynamic sliding cart from any page in your shop. Parallax also utilizes responsive design and retina-display images for an optimized layout on both desktop and mobile screens. You can view a full list of theme features in our Parallax demo shop.

This year, four members of the Out of the Sandbox Shopify theme team had the privilege of attending the Shopify Unite conference in San Francisco. We’ve since returned with new insights, ideas and lots of enthusiasm for the growth we see coming —both on the Shopify platform and for ecommerce in general.
