Managing Collections

Collections give you a way to organize your products for your webstore, mobile app, and promotional offers.

 

With Collections, you can categorize items by type, style, season, brand, and more! It is truly up to you how you would like to organize and label your collections. 

 

With that said, it’s important to remember that your collections will impact the options you have for your webstore and mobile app navigation and for promotions (e.g. coupons).

Creating Collections

To create a collection, click "Classic Webstore" or "Webstore Content" in the lefthand menu of your CommentSold dashboard. Then click "Collections."

 

CommentSold provides a couple of templates for collections when you first get started, but you can edit or remove these as desired. To begin, click the green button marked "Add Collection."

On the next page, you will need to complete a few fields.

The fields you will need to complete are:

  • Collection Title—Enter the name of your collection here. This will be visible to your shoppers in webstore and mobile app, so be sure to choose something descriptive.
  • URL—The URL is the web address for the collection. 
  • Content—Any text you enter here will show up at the bottom of the collection's page.

 

Note: Keep the URL simple to prevent broken links. Only use letters and numbers—do not include spaces, dashes, or other special characters here.

 

In addition to these basic fields, there are other settings you can select for the collection at this point.

You will have the option to enter:

  • App Sorting Position—If you have a mobile app with CommentSold, you can use this field to assign a number for your collection. If App Sorting Position is entered for any collection, your mobile app will display your collections according to this order. For example, if you want this collection to show before all your other collections, type in “1." This field is optional.
  • Auto Remove Products After X Days—To remove products from your collection after a set number of days from the date that it's been published, enter a number here. This can be helpful when you want to remove products from a collection that is meant for limited-time sales or to cycle out old products from collections that are meant for “new arrivals." This field is optional.
  • Collection Image—This image is not currently used or visible on the webstore. Adding a collection image is optional.
  • SEO Collection Title—This is the version of the collection title that will appear in search engine results.
  • SEO Meta Description—This is the short description that shows up when a page is displayed in search engine results. This field is optional.

 

When you’re done, click "Add Collection" to save. Your collection will now appear under the Collections section of the Classic Webstore/Webstore Content tab.

 


Editing a Collection

To edit a collection, visit the Collections page from the "Classic Webstore" or "Webstore Content" tab in the lefthand menu of your CommentSold dashboard.

 

Locate the collection you would like to edit and click the three dots in the Options column. Select "Edit." You will be able to make changes to the collection on this page. Once you are done, click the green button to "Update Collection."

 

Removing a Collection

Adding Products to Collections

Adding Individual Products to Collections

At this point, be sure your product description is webstore ready. The product description can be found under the General Info section of the Edit Product page. To apply the description in this box to your product page within the CommentSold webstore, check the "Use for Online Store & App" checkbox.
