Can I add collections in the Shopify Starter Plan?

Hi, I am looking to use the Shopify Starter Plan to embed buttons on a client's Squarespace website as they are unable to make full use of SS's e-commerce facilities as they need to charge different VAT rates for different products.
I understand I can do this within Shopify using Collections. However, I don't see how to add a collection. I don't see it in the menus or product pages as shown on the support videos/guide. 
Am I missing something or aren't collections available in the trial or Starter Plan versions?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Many thanks.

Hi @paleseptember

Great question! The Starter plan does not support product collections, as the browsing experience is meant to be a very simplified version of an online store. So for merchants that want collections, we would normally recommend the Basic Plan.

What kind of store is your client looking to build, and have you checked with Squarespace to ensure that you can, in fact, successfully embed Shopify Buy buttons onto their platform?
