# Collection grid

This guide describes setting up your store’s Collection grid section. Use the section to set how collections are displayed on your store’s collection pages. The section includes useful features for customizing collection pages, like a grid layout, product filtering and sorting.

In the following video, a collection grid section is displayed on a store’s collection page. Inside the section, the checkbox options are set to Enable filtering and Enable sorting. With these options enabled, visitors can select a range of products within a collection by using filtering criteria like availability and price. Then, visitors can arrange products within their selection with sorting criteria like price and popularity. Refer to Shopify help: Searching for products and filtering your product list (opens new window) and Shopify help: Add storefront filtering (opens new window).
