Setting product sort orders
When visitors to your website look at your different category pages to see your products, the products will be displayed in a particular order. You can change the order of the products by setting their sort order. To do this selectfrom the menu.
On the view products page select the Settings button in the top right corner:
This will give you 5 options to make the default sort order:
•Name (A to Z)
•Name (Z to A)
•Price (Low to High)
•Price (High to Low)
Select which option you would like to use and click save changes to complete the process.
The ‘Manual’ option means you will set the order of each product. Selecting this option makes a ‘Sort Order’ column appear in the ‘Existing Products’ box:
Click the + icon (or the number if there already is one) to input a number:
Once you have input a number click anywhere else on the screen, and the order will be set and automatically updated on your website. There is no save button to push to make changes.
Before you begin adding sort numbers, you will probably find it easier if you are only viewing the products which will appear on a page together. To see the products that are in a particular category use the ‘View Products in Category’ search box at the top of the page.
When inputting your numbers keep these things in mind:
• The lower the number you input the higher the product will appear on the page, e.g. a product with the sort number 1 will appear first on the page.
• Any products that haven’t been given a sort number will appear in alphabetical order after the ones that have numbers.
• If products appear on the same page and have the same sort number they will appear in alphabetical order.
