Updated September 15, 2023.
Until recently, Shopify users faced limitations in organizing their online stores with sub-collections and smart sorting options. With a recent Shopify update, Shopify has introduced exciting new features that allow you to enjoy the benefits of adding sub-collections within collections and implement smart sorting for an enhanced customer shopping experience.
In this comprehensive guide, we'll walk you through the process step-by-step and introduce you to a powerful automated sorting tool.
Adding Sub-Collections on Shopify
Once you've added collections on Shopify, simply follow these steps to add sub-collections:
- From your Shopify Admin page, expand the Online Store section under Sales Channels in the dashboard menu.
- Click on Navigation, and from there, select Main Menu. Here, you'll find various navigation options for your store.
- If you don't have menu items set up, click Add menu item. Give the item a name and select one of the collections you've previously set up.
- To create a sub-collection, add another menu item. Use the six dots to click and drag the sub-item underneath another collection slightly to the right. When done correctly, a purple bar with a small dot will appear, indicating it's now a sub-collection. Release the mouse button and click Save.
Verify your changes by checking the front end of your store to ensure that the sub-collection now appears nested within the main collection in your site's navigation bar.
