Can I create a custom sorting order for product variants in a Shopify collection?

Asked 2 years ago

I sell maxi skirts and summer dresses on Shopify. As of right now, all my products are sorted alphabetically which is the default sort option in Shopify. However, I want to organize them by stock availability as I would like items with the most stock to be at the top of their collections. Please can someone tell me if this is possible?

Yes, you can create a custom sorting order for product variants in a Shopify collection. You'll need to add a Shopify plugin like Sortimize Collection Sort and Collection Sort by Pulsar Lens. These Shopify apps help you simplify the process by customizing the "Sort by" feature for your product collections. Once you've done that, you can automatically organize each product variant into the desired order.
