How to Filter and Sort Products in Shopify

The Shopify Platform allows you to marvel at all the wonderful products in your store by sorting or filtering your items. Or, you can use it to identify a single item, or a group of items through the sort and filter functions.

The sorting tool organizes your products by ascending or descending values, allowing you to visually scan your products and make adjustments.

Shopify’s filter tool allows you to easily extract product information and save searches for future use.
