Hi @Denizthemenace 

You can add products to a manual collection via the API and specify the sort order with the position and sort_value fields. You should be able to have an app programatically add the products to a collection as long as you have them listed in the desired order on your end.

Here's a link to the relevant documentation - Collect is the endpoint that adds products to collections - https://shopify.dev/api/admin/rest/reference/products/collect
