How does adding collection information work? 

Enter an internal ID for your collection

Internal IDs are used within your organization (they're hidden from public view) and used to identify your collection. Some things to note are that internal IDs don't have to be unique and is a mandatory field.

Enter a slug or custom URL

A slug is the part of a URL which identifies a particular page on a website to make it easy to read, at-a-glance. In other words, it's the part of the URL that explains the page's content. In the example ‘briklshop.com/bikes’, ‘bikes’ is the slug.

How to write a custom URL?

  • No Spaces. Use "-" instead.
  • No capital letters. Lower case only

For example: "short-sleeve-t-shirt”.

A slug must be unique. Important: if the slug is not unique (i.e. it has already been used elsewhere, the collection will not be visible)

Add collection media

Drag-and-drop an image, or upload one from your computer, to assign a thumbnail or banner to your collection. 

  • Banners for collections should be 1800px (18:9) and ca be any file size. 
  • Thumbnails for collections should be 300 px (4:3) and can be any file size.

A thumbnail is highly recommended for each collection. A banner is optional.

Assign a parent or child collection

You can create multi-level collections by assigning one or multiple parent or child collections. Creating a hierarchy allows customers to easily navigate across your site.

IMPORTANT: Collection hierarchy (parent/child collections) can only be used for storefront content pages. It cannot be used for MicroStore home pages or MicroStore content pages.

Example (Vermarc Sport):

Parent collections:

Tax settings by collection

You can set a VAT rate for your products which will be visible to customers at checkout. This is particularly useful for products that require a different tax rate.
