2. Look for the “Select Category” option, then click and choose the product category you want to sort.
Note: If you are not categorizing your products, or you want to sort every item you have, go ahead and click “Sort Products” and drag the products according to your liking. (See step 4 for a detailed explanation)

3. Now that you are done with the category, we will now proceed with the filter. You will see all of the products chosen in the category when you click “filter.”

4. Choose “Sort Products,” and after clicking, you have to put your cursor in the product row area where there are no texts- like a blank space. For instance, on the left side corner of your screen, beside the checkbox. Your cursor will suddenly change to a crosshair figure.

5. You can change the product order by simply dragging it up or down.

6. Once you are satisfied with the order, proceed to view the category and double-check if you have done it correctly.
