How do I allow customers to sort products in my categories?


When a customer is browsing your online shop, it can be handy to provide them with the option to choose the order your products are displayed in a category.

You can turn this option on in your Create account and enable the products in your shop categories to be sorted by price, alphabetically or when the products were added to your shop.

 

Simply follow the steps below to turn this option on in your shop categories.

  1. Log into your Create account.
  2. Click ‘Shop’ in the top menu
  3. Click on ‘Shop Settings’ in the left hand menu
  4. Click on ‘General Configuration’ 
  5. Choose the ‘Categories’ tab and scroll down towards the bottom of the page 
  6. Choose ‘YES’ in the drop down menu for the option to “Allow Customers to Sort Products”
  7. Click the green Save Changes button

This change will take effect on your live site immediately. 

 

By default product categories will display your "Product Title" alphabetically in ascending order (A-Z).

You can change this default order in each shop category by doing the following:

  1. Log into your Create account.
  2. Click ‘Shop’ in the top menu
  3. Click into the category you wish to set up the default sort order for
  4. Scroll to the “Products in this category” title
  5. Choose Product Title, Price or Order Added from the drop down option labelled “Sort these products by”
  6. Click the green Save button

These changes will take immediate effect on your account.
