1. Benefits of publishing quizzes as Shopify pages

You should consider publishing your quiz to a Shopify page when:

  • The quiz is more than 5 steps long. While pop-ups can be handy for shorter quizzes, they are not an ideal fit for longer quizzes. Embedding your quiz in a Shopify page is a better choice for longer quizzes, so that you can feel more confident that you are not interrupting customers with a more time-consuming task.

  • You want to feature the quiz prominently in your site. You’ve worked hard on your quiz, so it makes sense that you want to feature it on your site! When you publish your quiz as a Shopify page, you can then feature this page in your site navigation. You can even embed the quiz in your site’s homepage for maximum visibility.

  • You plan to drive ads or social media traffic to your quiz. People love taking quizzes! A quiz is a compelling, low stakes way to drive traffic to your site. By embedding your quiz in a Shopify page, you can direct traffic from ads or social media posts directly to the quiz and then to your store catalog.

You can also publish a quiz as a pop-up!

3.1. Embed type

The Embed type setting determines how the quiz will appear to customers when they navigate to its page on your store:

  • Page body: The quiz will fit within a page while maintaining access to your standard Shopify navigation and footer. This is ideal for quizzes that are added to pages with other content.

  • Full screen: The quiz will take over the entire page for a focused, distraction-free quiz experience. This is a great option when using your quiz as a landing page. If customers leave the quiz, they’ll be directed back to your site home page.

3.2. Quiz height

The Quiz height setting determines how much space the quiz will take up within the customer’s browser window:

  • Match browser height: The quiz will adapt to the size of the user’s browser window. This is the recommended default option for desktop and mobile.

  • Custom height: Set custom heights (in pixels) for the quiz on mobile and / or desktop devices. This is a great idea if you use a background image on your quiz that you want to look the same across all devices.
