How to change the text on the Buy Now Button on Shopify

In some instance, you may want to alter the standard text that comes with your Shopify store. This might be because it works better with what you sell or because you want to add some brand humor to proceedings.

Whatever your reason there is a way to do most things in Shopify and changing text is one that is fairly easy. You can alter the text on the Add to Cart button or you may want to personalise the email that is sent when your customer buys something.
