SHOPLINE provides four ways for products sorting in the storefront:
- Newest to Oldest
- Oldest to Newest
- Price: High to Low
- Price: Low to High
Customers can change the product sorting to the way they prefer.
The default setting for the product sorting in the storefront is “Newest to Oldest”, which means the latest product you created will be the first one to be shown in every category that it belongs to.
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.
