Reorder Categories & Store Items

Reordering is to change the order of categories and store products as they are shown in the store. Reordering has to do with adjusting the display positions of categories and items in your menu. This affects which items appear first, and hence which items have more visibility.

You may move categories or items up the catalog to increase their visibility.

Reorder Option Groups

Option groups appear on the customer menu in the same order they appear in your store dashboard. However, this order is not permanent and you can change it at any time.
To rearrange option groups in an item, head over to its detail page and scroll to the option groups section. We will assume that you have at least two option groups in your store. And if that is the case, you will see directional arrows to the right of the name of every option group saved in your store. Using these arrows, you can move an option group either up or down.

After the above operation, the customer interface will change and now the Pizza dough type group will appear before the ingredients. As we mentioned before, the order of option groups in your store may influence which options the customers choose. Therefore, it is advisable to switch the order of the option groups from time to time. Also, always ensure your option groups have descriptive names and a reasonable number of options.

Reorder Options

Like with option groups, you can change the order in which your options appear on the customer menu. Changing the order of items allows you to experiment and understand how the order affects customers’ choices. For example, you may want to change the order of options listed under an item if they are more than four.

To change the order of options, go to the specific store items under which they are listed and find the option groups section. Find the respective option group in which the options you would like to rearrange are listed and use the up and down directional arrows to move items higher or lower in the group. The new order will be used when customers view the item on the menu.
