What is collection?
As name suggests, collection is logical group of products displayed together in a style. Various business can have different collections. Typical collections for various categories
Grocery store collections
- Breakfast essentials
- Your Daily Staples
- Most Popular
- Best Sellers
Fashion store collections
- End of Season Sale
- Best of Beauty & Personal Care
- Best of Clothing
- Flash sale
We can find similar patterns in other business verticals like electronics, furniture etc. Adding products from different tags and category under one set based on sale, popularity or any other attribute is called collection.
Shoopy offers 5 different collections formats
Banner and products based
This type of collection has a small banner and list of products with “view all” option to open detailed listing. Suitable for the business/store where number of collections for more than 3 to 4. It saves prime space of your main screen while providing the business objective.
Multi-row product grid
It will only have products displayed in multiple rows. We can configure number of products per row on mobile and desktop to provide a precise look we want. Usually we use this type of grid when we have limited products and total number of collections in the home screens are not many.
Single row product list
In situations where we have too many products and displaying in grid style doesn’t make sense. We can use single row product list. This collection also allows us to configure number of products to be displayed in home screen. Post that a scroll option will appear.
Banner only collection makes a lot of sense when we have some existing announcement to be made. With images we can make an impact in users mind. We can configure separate image for mobile and desktop users. Shoopy allows you to specify background color as well to ensure that images are not going out of the place with theme colors.
Mini banner is very special type of collection. I would rather say it’s “Collection of 3 collections” All the 3 collections will be lined up in a row with image only displayed in home screen. User can click and navigate to different collection from there. Cases where collections are very much related will be ideal use case of such collections.
Apart from various collections types, Shoopy also provides you easy way to turn off a collection so that you don’t loose on your work and get it back when needed.
