The product grid is a set of products that defines the number of products per page and allocates a template to them. Managing products as grids allow you to automatically update their fields, template design, etc. At the same time, you can produce products individually even when they are parts of a grid.
Watch a video tutorial or follow steps below to create or update your product grid:
Step 1. Go to your catalog
Select the Grid tab on the left part of the screen.
Step 2. Create a new grid
Click on + New Product Grid.
Select the products you want to add to the grid.
You can add all products at once or each product one by one. You can also choose a product collection you want to add.
Pay your attention to InStock products only button on the left part of the screen. Be sure it’s on if you want to include to the grid only products with quantity 1 or more. So, the list of presented products at the catalog will be automatically updated based on their availability. You should make this decision before you will add any product to the grid.
3. Click on Grids & Templates on top.
4. Select how many products per page you want to present.
5. Select the template. You can use one of the predefined templates or create your own. Click here to find out more about how to manage the templates.

Grids with custom layouts
Toggle Use layouts to create a grid with the custom layout of elements and templates.
Step 3. Edit existing grid
Put the cursor into the needed grid and click on the appeared pencil icon.
All other steps are similar to creating a new grid part.
Be sure you name your grid, so you can easily find it.
Please note that a collection grid page cannot be edited directly, but a collection or template can be changed from the page settings or Grid Manager.
Grid will keep pages together if:
Grid name is the same
Grid template is the same
Grid size is the same
Page section name is the same
Products fill page completely - otherwise, the next page will become a new grid
