The Collection List section offers an easy way to display your collections on the homepage or other pages. It is a powerful tool that allows merchants to organize and display their products by category without going through the main menu -- they just need to scroll through the site or page.
Unlike the Collection List page, you can control which collections you would like to display. This is a good way to promote certain categories or new collections. This also allows customers to find what they need quickly.
Adding the Collection List section
Login to your Theme editor and navigate to the page you would like to display this section.
You'll see a list of available sections on the left-hand side. Locate the Add section button and click on it.
From the list of available sections, find and select Collection List.
