Product collections overview
A product collection refers to a set of products that share some characteristics.
The product collections serve as a means of organizing products on your website in a systematic and user-friendly manner.
By creating collections, you can organize your products into logical categories that shoppers can easily navigate. This feature is especially helpful when customers are looking for something specific or want to explore a particular type of product.
Additionally, collections can be used as a marketing tool to promote your newest or most popular items.

Product collections can be found at Products → Collections from the left menu on admin panel.
On the "Collections" page, click on the "Create collection" button from the top right of the page.
Here, write down the Collection Title.
Writing Description is optional.
Next, add an image for the Collection's cover photo. 1080x1080 (1:1) recommended with the max size 2MB. You can also add image from URL.
Then, set the collection's status as published if you want the collection to be lived immediately. Collection status can be found from the right side of the page.
Done! Collection type is currently set as "Manual" by default. It means that, you should add products to this collection one-by-one.
