Feature collections in navigation

This guide describes how to feature products from a collection inside the header section.

Use this feature to display products inside a dropdown menu, in the header navigation area, at the top of store pages. Refer to Shopify help: Menus and links

The previous video shows a store's homepage. The header navigation area, at the top of the page, contains the Shop dropdown. Products from the Shop collection are featured inside the dropdown, with links to the products' pages. The dropdown's View all button displays all of the products from the Shop collection.


This feature is available only with desktop navigation, and it is not available with navigation inside the mobile drawer.
