Filters and sorting

Collection pages

Let customers discover products quickly by filtering your products by availability, price, type, vendor, and your variant options. When filters are enabled, Spark also displays a price slider, color swatches, and product chips for easy navigation.

Shopify | Sorting and filtering products are Shopify features. The theme provides the style of the filter options on collection pages, including features like product swatches. You can add custom filters with Shopify's Search & Discovery app. See Shopify's App guide ↗ to learn more.
