Change the default product order in collection

Learn to change the default sorting option of the product listing

Want to showcase specific products first in your Shopify collections?

You can easily customize the order where your products appear by default, giving you more control over the promotion messages.


  1. From your Shopify Dashboard, navigate to Products > Collections.

  2. Click on the specific collection you want to edit. This will open the collection details page.

  3. Scroll down to the Products section.

    Under Products, you'll see the Sort menu. This is where you can control the order in which your products appear within this collection.

  4. Select a sorting option you want to apply to your collection.

Sorting Options:

  • Default (Alphabetical): The default setting, where product titles appear alphabetically.

  • Best Selling: Prioritize products based on their sales history, potentially showcasing your most popular items first.

  • Newest/ Oldest: Display products in the order they are added to the collection, with the newest/ oldest additions showing first.

  • Highest price/ Lowest price: Display products based on the product prices.

  • Manually: You can fully customize the order by dragging and dropping products to your desired positions.

Note: Changing the sorting order only applies to the specific collection you're editing. You'll need to repeat the process for other collections where you want to change the product order.

💡 Tips:

  • While manual sorting offers flexibility, consider using pre-set options like "Best Selling" as a starting point for larger collections.

  • Experiment with different sorting orders to see what resonates best with your audience and drives sales.
