Are you struggling to showcase your product options on the collection pages of your Shopify store? If so, don’t worry! We have got you covered. In this blog post, we will guide you through the process of adding variant selectors in Shopify on collection pages. With our step-by-step instructions and helpful tips, you’ll be able to enhance your customer’s shopping experience by making it easier for them to find exactly what they want. So let’s get started!

What is a Variant Selector?

A variant selector is a drop-down menu that allows customers to select the desired variation of a product from a list of available options. For example, if you have a t-shirt available in multiple colors and sizes, the variant selector would allow customers to choose their preferred color and size.

Variant selectors can be added to products in the Shopify admin. To add a variant selector to a product, first go to the “Products” page and click on the product that you want to edit. In the “Product details” section, scroll down to the “Variants” section and click on “Add Variant”.

In the “Add Variant” pop-up window, you will need to enter the variant’s name, price, SKU (if applicable), and weight (if applicable). You can also specify whether or not the variant is taxable and if it should be featured on your online store. Once you have entered all of the necessary information, click on “Save Variant”.

Your new variant selector will now appear on the product page. Customers will be able to choose their desired variation from the drop-down menu.

How to Add a Variant Selector in Shopify

If you want to offer your customers the option to choose from different variants of a product on your Shopify collection pages, you can do so by adding a variant selector. This will allow customers to select the variation they want and see the corresponding price and image.

Here’s how you can add a variant selector in Shopify:

  1. From your Shopify admin, go to Products > All products.
  2. Find the product that you want to add a variant selector for, and then click Edit.
  3. In the Variant options section, click Add option.
  4. Enter a name for the variant option (for example, Size or Color), and then click Save.
  5. Under each variant option, enter the values that you want to offer (for example, Small, Medium, or Large). If you are offering multiple values for an option (for example, different colors), separate each value with a comma. Be sure to click Save after adding each value.
  6. That’s it! Customers will now be able to select from the different variants on your collection pages
