'Collections' in Shopify, what's that?
In Shopify, we call 'collections' a group of products present in the same place. What for? As a merchant, you will be able to organize your products in your catalog, in structured groups.
Collections will help you easily manage access associated product data sheets. You'll also be able to act easily on the information and offer more updates (price modifications, image uploads, tag additions, etc).
On the cutomers' side, the advantage is also real.
