4. Frequently Asked Questions

Q1: Will "Publish/Unpublish" the products affect my products' ordering? 

No, unpublished products will not be displayed on your storefront; when you publish the same product again, it will be display in the same position on storefront as before. 

 

Q2: How the system manage the ordering of main-categories and sub-categories?

When products belongs to a main-category and a sub-category, which means when you arrange the order of the product in sub-category, the position will be also updated in main-category. In this way, merchants do not need to turn to the Main-category to update the ordering which brings convenience to merchants to manage the sorting. Take the following as an example:

Original product sequence

Main-category has products: A + B + C + D + E + F
Sub-category: D + E + F
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Product sequence after adjustment

Sub-category sequence changes into: F + D + E
Main-category sequence changes into: A + B + C + F + D + E

 

Q3: How does the system sort the category "All Products"?

The sorting is according to the sequence of product uploaded/created time and date.
