Use Case: Sequencing products by Product Type

Product Sequencing enables the merchant to arrange products in Categories and Collections based on product attributes defined in the eCommerce platform. 

This use case showcases product diversity in a Category or Collection using the attribute Product Type, wherein: 

  1. The first 4 products showcase the Product Type 'Dresses' 
  2. The next 4 products showcase the Product Type 'Tops' 
  3. The next 4 products showcase the Product Type 'Skirts'   
To achieve this, you must create a Sequence. To do so, follow the steps below: 
  • Choose the Category or Collection you want to merchandise, and click on the 'Edit' icon. 
1-Feb-26-2021-11-54-03-40-AM
  • Choose the Sequence option. 
  • As the 'Sequence upto' is set as '90th product', the Sequence will repeat until the set Sequence number. After the Sequence ends the products will follow the 'Default Sort Order.' 
  • As we like to showcase 4 products for each Sequence, the Product per Sequence can be set to a default of '4' 
  • The 'Default Sort Order' can be set to 'Trending' to utilize the benefits of the T-score, like Global Boost & Local boost.
