What is the difference between the Global block and Section builder?

Have you ever wondered what the difference is between the two of them? In this document, we will figure it out together.

First, with the Global block:

  • You can add it to pages created with EComposer.
  • You can add it to the Content tab on the blog post, a product, or a page in Shopify using the Embedded shortcode.

Second, with the Section builder: You can add it between the sections of the pages in Shopify through the theme editor.

Note: A global block can’t be added through the “Add block” button in the theme editor. For a visual reference, please see the video below.

You can only add a Section to the pages in Shopify theme editor.
