How to manage collection and nested collection/sub-collection with Admin/storefront API's?

1 0 1

Hi Team,

We want to manage collection as follows in our own application:

1. Clothing

a. MensClothing 



b. Womens Clothing






In above example 1. clothing is top category then a. MensClothing is child/sub category in it.


so in shopify i did not find a way to organize products  in above way.


Do shopify have API to arrange products in category and sub category ?

Any way to handle subcategories by using Admin or storefront API's?

What is the recommended way to handle categories and sub-categories in storefront Application? 


could you please help me in this?

Hi @Mahesh18 and @ftballguy45 

The Admin API does not have a sub-collection feature, but there are options to display filtered collections with both the Online Store sales channel and the Storefront API.

With the Storefront API the Collections.products connection accepts productFilters as arguments to refine the results.


Hope that helps!
