Creating a Shopify Collection:
What is a Shopify Collection?
A Shopify Collection allows the vendors the opportunity to have more control over which products they sync from Shopify to Postal. All products chosen will be filtered in one section known as a Collection. This will help manage your products in Postal better by reducing the number of Products in the Product Tab. It will also make adding products to Postal in the future easier since all you will need to do is add whichever product you choose to import into your collection.

Step 1: Click ‘Products’ from the left-hand menu bar
Step 2: Click ‘Collections’
Step 3: Click ‘Create collection’
Step 4: Assign your collection a name and add a description
