Appears that the meta descriptions for "/" and "/collections/" are pulled from "Online Store->Preferences->"Homepage Meta Descriptions". I couldn't seem to find a place to change the meta for "/collections/" only. If there isn't a settings is this something that could/should be done through liquid?

Absolutely. You can change the meta information for each collection on it's individual collection page. In order to do that, you'll just need to navigate to Products>Collections and click on the specific collection that you'd like to edit. Once you've done that, select the "Edit Website SEO" at the bottom of the page and the meta information will appear.
Are you hoping to change or remove the 'collections' handle altogether? If so, unfortunately that's not possible at this time.
Let me know if you have any further questions!

Were you able to find this out? I am having the same trouble trying to change the meta description for "/collections/" only.
I am able to find where to change the meta description for specific collections, but not collections itself. Right now the meta description for /collections/ is the same one as the homepage, which gives me errors in my seo reports.
I am having the same issue. Has anybody discovered a way to edit the /collection page?
As mentioned before, it is not the individual owner made collection pages (eg: collections/men's clothes) which need meta data editing. Rather the entire collections page (www.21dwdesign/collections).
It REALLY needs fixing for SEO purposes.
This can be achieved by editing the theme.liquid file. I recommend creating a backup first.
If your code looks different you'll need to adapt the code accordingly. You may need to change the template name as well if your theme is using something else. Leave off the .liquid part.
