SHOPLINE provides five ways for products sorting in the storefront:
- Newest to Oldest
- Oldest to Newest
- Price: High to Low
- Price: Low to High
- Sales Volume: High to Low
Customers can change the product sorting to the way they prefer.
The default product sorting will be displayed according to the "Storefront Default Sorting" set in Admin. Customers are allowed to switch to other sorting methods on the category page as well.
[Coming Soon] How to set the storefront default sorting, please refer to the FAQ - Categories and Products Ordering
Remark:For "Shop All" and categories that you have never manually reordered will be shown in chronological order
Sort by Uploaded Case
The created time of order was: Product A > Product B > Product C > Product D
Then the ordering for the 4 products will be: Product D > Product C > Product B > Product A
Sort by Price Case
If the customer choose the sorting related to the price, the products with the same price will be shown in chronological order. On the other hand, the products without any price or has a hidden price will be placed last and also in chronological order.
Product 015 was the latest product that I created and has the same price as Product 001. After choosing the sorting “Price: High to Low”, Product 015 will be displayed in front of 001:
If we change to “Price: Low to High”, Product 015 will still be shown in front of 001:
For the products without price or with hidden price, they will all be shown at last. Products with hidden price are sorted according to the price in backend(either in ascending/ descending order, according to what customers chose). If there's more than one hidden-priced products with same price, newly created products would be shown first. Products without price would be considered as $0. Similarly, newly created products would be shown first.
The image below illustrates the principle behind:
Sort by Sales Volume Case
You can enable this feature in "Shop Design" -> "Design" -> "Advance Settings"
After feature enabled, customer will be able to sort products base on sales volume.
Please be noted:
1. Currently sales volume sorting will be based on historical sales volume of each product.
2. Currently sales volume will not be shown in storefront.
3. Products with same sales volume will be shown in chronological order.
4. Sales volume will exclude cancelled and removed orders, and will be updated hourly.
