Hi,

Products in your SimpleStore are sorted by product name, numerically and then alphabetically. This means that your products that start with numbers will appear before products that start with letters. They are sorted in this order, by the first number or letter in the product name.

1234567890ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ

At this time, there is no option to manually sort your products in the SimpleStore. However, if you'd like to have your products appear in a specific order, you may want to number them in the order you'd like for them to appear. For example, if you have three products in your SimpleStore, "Red Shirt", "Blue Shirt", and "Yellow Shirt", SimpleStore will sort them in this order:

Blue Shirt
Red Shirt
Yellow Shirt

So, if you want them to appear in a different order, you can add numbers or letters to the beginning of the product name. Here's what you would do if you wanted "Yellow Shirt" to appear first:

1 - Yellow Shirt
2 - Blue Shirt
3 - Red Shirt

This way, you can sort my products manually, and it's still clear to the customer what the product name is!

Hope this helps!

Hi, I am trying to sort the products in a category to the way that I would like them displayed. I do not want the products to be displayed alphabetically, but cannot find a place to specify how I want them to be placed on the site. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Brent -

At this time, there's no sort priority option in the Simple Store, but you can use the tips above to workaround it.

We are always adding new features, so I would definitely submit this as a feature requests in the forum for our developers to see.

Thanks,
Aubrey
