I have read some poasts on the Forums but am still a little confused about Types vs Tags vs Collections.
I see how Collections are basically Categories and can be created automatically by assigning Tags to products.
Are these the 2 easiest way to catorgorise products for Navigation and Sorting?
My client sells Womens Beachwear / Nightwear so I was thinking that it would be all one type. And then the collections would be eg: Swimwear, Tops, Pants or whatever.
I am trying to make it as easy as possible, but don't want to go down the wrong route.
From what I can tell Tags and Collections seem to be the most flexible.
If you have mutiple items you can assign to multiple catalogs.
Say im selling Pet products and I want to list Food bowls for both collections (dog / Cat)
First I add the product itself and assign my product to Dogs Collection. Then I go to the product and bulk edit it (or select it) and assign to Cat Collection. Now that product will show in both collections. You can additionally add Tags (dog bowl, cat bowl, color, price).
