Collections List

Overview

Your Collection list section is where you can advertise collections of your choice on your homepage.

This can be a great way to shed light on your best-sellers, new releases, and hidden gems - and it's also a great way to upsell additional products or services that your customer may not be aware you sell.

Heading & Subheading

While neither are required fields, you can choose to add a Heading and a Subheading by typing them into the entry fields under Settings.

These will then appear above your Collections list, allowing you to help advertise the collections you are featuring.

A new Heading will also rename this section entirely.

The Heading and Subheading only feature plain text, and therefore can't include any bold or italic text.
