Whats the best way to add a new arrivals collection to my store?
Is there anyway after 30days it will be removed. how do they get added into the collections.
Just make a collection named new arrivals, then make the statement to only add products with the tag new arrivals,
Then add tags to all the products that are new arrivals. Once its done, just remove the tags from the products.
Have a look at https://apps.shopify.com/newr
It's an app that automatically adds products to your new arrivals collections and remove them after X days (according to your settings).
The New Arrivals Shopify app is another option that might be helpful to set up an automated tag-based new arrivals collection. It can automatically tag and untag products based on creation or publishing date. You can set up a concrete period of time the products should be considered to be "new". It will automatically remove the tag after a specified period of time.
Does it keep the items in the same order or does it mix them up each time the page loads? I'm looking for a way to add, for example, 40 new products and have those 40 rotate which ones show up first on the homepage (so the same 6 don't show up every time just because they were added last).
@214decor, yes, you can do that if you use the the New Arrivals app. All you need is to set up the collection based on the tag configured in the app and then sort the collection by Newest. By doing so it will show the recently added products on the home page.
