2. With themes which does not support Shopify 2.0

If you are using old theme (does not support OS2.0) then you will see below message:

You don’t need to do anything, just click on Start Building and everything will work perfectly, for themes that already support OS2.0, you won’t see this message.

What happens when I click Start Build? will it affect my website?

Many people are concerned that when they click on an action (in this example, Start Build), that will have an effect on their website. Please keep in mind that clicking this button will bring you to the editor, where you may begin designing the webpage (including the landing page, home page, product, collection, and so on), but it will not replace your current website. Even if you publish that page, it will be a new page that will not conflict with any of the current pages on the website.

3. With themes which supports Shopify 2.0

Once you have installed app, you have to enable the “EComposer theme Helper” option to start using page builder for theme. If you don’t do so you will get the following error warning and won’t let you start:
