Is there a limit to the amount of collections Shopify allows you to create?

So far my website has created about 10,000 and now is having problems adding more.

Anybody else with same problem?

 

Thanks

That is probably it, 10,000. Why do you need so many?

There's no limits on collections that would restrict you to 10,000. Realistically though, 10,000 is a very large amount of collections. Are you sure this can't be better handled in other ways?

Did you get any definitive info on your question re the max number of collections in a store?

 

Apertive (app developer) told us there is a limit of 5,000 smart collections. I do not know if that is accurate, and they said that they do not know if there is a limit on manual collections.

 

Understood re the number of cities in the US. We face the same with nonprofits and schools.

 

Thanks!

That smart collection limit of 5000 is accurate.

Of course this might change in the future so someone reading this post in another year may see a different number.

Hi Jason

 

Thanks for the info. I checked out your website. How fantastic!! I just wish you had a mailing list (for instance, I would love to know when Super Backup is ready).

 

So, no limit on manual collections, but a limit of 5,000 smart collections? Looks like we need to convert our growing set of smart collections to manual collections. Sigh. 

 

We will have a collection for each of many nonprofits and for each of 135k schools. Yeah, that is a big number. (Ours is a nonprofit donation site: http://ChangingThePresent.org).

 

We have been trying for months to get answers from Shopify gurus about various limits. Not just collections, but also vendors, tags, products-per-collection, etc.? No luck. Can you advise on other limits? I had posted questions to the forum here, but no replies: https://community.shopify.com/c/Shopify-Discussion/Maximum-Number-of-Collections-Vendors-and-Tags/m-...

 

Thank you very much!

 

Have a great trip to Singapore.

 

Best wishes

Robert

Shopify previously told us there is no limit on the number of manual/custom collections. Now they say the limit is 100k.

"No limit" seems unrealistic; 100k seems more likely

There may not be a limit to the number of collections you can have, but there is, apparently, a limit to the number you can make available to your page, and that appears to be about ~200, which is woefully low.
