Changing the Order of Products on Shopify: A Simple Guide

Hey there! Today, I want to talk about something quite interesting – how to change the order of products on Shopify. It might seem like a daunting task, but fear not! With a few easy steps, you’ll be able to rearrange your products just the way you want.

First things first, let’s take a look at the HTML markup you’ll need to manipulate. Shopify uses a unique system called Liquid, which allows you to customize the look and feel of your online store. Within this markup, you’ll find tags that control the sorting order of your products.

Now, I can hear you thinking, “But how do I actually change the order?” Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered! Follow these steps and you’ll be a pro in no time.

Step 1: Log in to your Shopify admin panel. Once you’re in, navigate to the “Products” section. Here, you’ll find a list of all your products.

Step 2: Look for the “Sort” option at the top right-hand corner of the page. Click on it, and a dropdown menu will appear. This is where the magic happens!

Step 3: You’ll see several sorting options, such as “Best Selling,” “Price,” and “Date,” among others. Choose the option that fits your needs. For example, if you want to sort by price, select the “Price” option.

Step 4: Once you’ve chosen your preferred sorting option, click on it. Your products will instantly be rearranged based on your selection. Cool, right?

Step 5: If you want to refine the sorting even further, you can use the “Ascending” and “Descending” options that appear next to the sorting menu. For example, if you want to show the highest-priced products first, select the “Price” option and choose “Descending.”

Voila! You’ve successfully changed the order of your products on Shopify. Now, take a moment to appreciate your newfound control over your online store’s appearance.

Remember, experimenting with different sorting options can help you showcase your products in the best possible way. Play around with the settings until you find the perfect arrangement that suits your business needs.

So there you have it – a simple guide on how to change the order of products on Shopify. I hope this information has been helpful and has empowered you to create a truly unique and captivating online store. Happy sorting!

How to Change the Order of Products on Shopify

Just like in a regular store, how you organize your products in an online shop can make a big difference in sales. What products do you want to showcase first? Which ones will catch the attention of new customers?

You might not want your products to be sorted in the default way, but rather according to specific criteria. That’s where Shopify comes in – it allows you to choose how your products are displayed. To find out more about organizing the items in your online shop, continue reading this article.

Changing the Order of Products

When you add products to your online shop, they are grouped into collections. By default, the products are sorted alphabetically. However, you can change this and sort them:

  1. Based on the best-selling product,
  2. From the newest to the oldest product (or vice versa),
  3. From the lowest to the highest price (or the other way around),
  4. In reverse alphabetical order, or
  5. You can manually arrange them.

Now, let’s go through the steps on how to change the order of your products based on different criteria:

From a Desktop Computer

  1. To start, open up your admin panel. This is where you can manage all the important aspects of your website.
  2. When you’re in the admin panel, look for the “Products” option. Click on it to access the product settings.
  3. Next, find the “Collections” tab in the menu. Click on it to view all your collections.
  4. Once you’re in the collections section, locate the specific collection you want to work on.
  5. In the products section of the collection, you’ll see a drop-down menu next to the “Sort” option. It’s important to find this menu, as it’s where you can choose the order of your products.
  6. Select the order you prefer for your collection from the drop-down menu. Think about how you want your customers to see your products and make your choice accordingly.
  7. If you want to have complete control over the order of your products, choose the “Manually” option from the drop-down menu. This will allow you to personally select and rearrange your products as you see fit.
  8. After you’ve made all your adjustments, don’t forget to click on the “Save” button to save your changes and make them visible on your website.

Managing Your Online Catalogue

There are plenty of other features you can adjust in your online catalog to make it look just the way you want. You can add a new featured image, change the name or description of your collection, and more.

Changing the Name and Description of a Collection

If you’re using a desktop computer, follow these steps: open your admin panel and click on Products. Then, go to Collections and find the collection you want to rename. Once you’re on the collection page, you can type in the new name or edit the description. Don’t forget to select Save to keep the changes.

If you’re editing the collection from your mobile device using the Shopify app, start by tapping on Products. From there, choose the collection you want to edit and enter the new name and description. Tap the checkmark to save your changes.

Changing the Featured Image of a Collection

If you’re using a PC, follow these steps:

  1. Go to your Shopify admin panel.
  2. Open Products and select Collections. Find the collection you want to change the image for.
  3. If the collection doesn’t have a picture yet, select Upload image. If you’re only replacing an existing image, choose Change image.
  4. Once the image is uploaded, select Save.

If you’re adding an image from your mobile device, the steps are similar. However, to replace the old image, you’ll need to delete it first before you can upload a new one.

How to Create a Collection

The easiest way to manage your products is by using collections. They make it much easier for your customers to find what they’re looking for, although you can still reorder products without using collections.

You can create a collection manually, or you can use specific conditions to automate the process. Here’s what you need to do:

From a Desktop Computer

  1. Open your admin panel and navigate to Collections in the Products section.
  2. Select the Create collection option.
  3. Choose a name for your collection and set it as Automated.
  4. Decide on the conditions that your products need to meet in order to be included in the collection. You can choose all conditions or just some.
  5. Select the conditions you want to apply.
  6. Select Save and then check to make sure that all the products you want are included in the new collection.

Once you’ve created the collection, you can order the products as desired, add a featured image, and set a launch date. Don’t forget to share the collection link with your customers!


From Mobile Devices

  1. First, open your Shopify app and find the Collections option in the Products section. Tap on it.
  2. In the upper-right corner, you’ll see a plus icon. Tap on it.
  3. Name your new collection and provide a description. Give it a personal touch!
  4. Choose an image that represents your collection. It should catch your customers’ attention.
  5. If you want Shopify to automatically select products for your collection, choose the “Automatically select products” option. You can also set conditions for the products to match.
  6. Do you want to change the order of your products? No worries. Just tap on “Sorting” and drag them to the desired position. Easy peasy!
  7. All done? Great! Just hit “Save” and you’re ready to share the link with your customers. Let them enjoy your awesome collection!
