Well, it’s been quite a day here at Zazzle! Last night’s release is out and there’s a buzz going around…we can feel it…it’s pretty buzzy ’round these parts. I think the most common questions we’re getting are related to our new Store Category Sorting and Browsing feature. Yes, it’s a mouthful…but that’s ’cause it’s a pretty meaty piece of…well…meat :-)
In a nutshell, Store Category Sorting and Browsing is a powerful feature that makes Zazzle stores easier to navigate for customers, and easier to merchandise and promote for store owners.
- Store Owners can set the display order of all categories and products within their store.
- Store Owners can upload icon images to represent any category in their store, or use a default image generated by Zazzle.
- Stores can be set to display a scrollable list of categories, or a fully expanded list of categories.
- Customers can sort products in a store Alphabetically, Reverse Alphabetical, by Newest, or by Popularity.
