As part of the new Online Store 2.0 theme architecture, the Collection Page template can natively host a number of Filters, to allow your customers to easily browse through any given Collection Page template with the filter applied to sort the Shopify Products as preferred.

To enable Filters, if preferred, please navigate to:

1. Admin
2. Online Store → Navigation
3. Scroll down to Collection and search filters.
4. Click Add filters.



Within this menu, please select one or more filter options from the list of available filters to enable these for use within your theme.

Once happy with your final selection, please select Done to save your product options, before using the Save option to finalise the changes and update the filters on the Collection Page template.

The native options available for Filters are:

  • Availability
