Before assigning a collection, you must first create a collection. Be sure to create a one for a specific MicroStore and try not to share them among multiple MicroStores.

If a product is not assigned to a MicroStore but is part of a collection that is assigned to a MicroStore, the product will be available in that MicroStore.

Creating a sales channel-specific collection

You can assign and override collections for any MicroStore of your choice. Customize the name, descriptions, and images of products contained in every collection to hyper-personalize your store. 

This feature enables modifications to be made to your sales channel collection while your base collection remains the same.

Speak to your account manager to enable this feature. Once enabled, you simply need to select which products from the base collection you want to show in the MicroStore.  

Go to: 

  1. Catalog > Collections > Choose your base collection. Haven’t set one up yet? Read how to do that here. 
  2. Select your collection to edit it, if required. In this section, you can override the name or title, the URL, description, images, and products. If you want to edit the products and prices in your collection, you can do that in the Products tab > Product List. 
  3. Go to the front-end of your MicroStore to view your collection.
