Does having multiple collections impact store performance?

Hi!

 

I would like to know if having many collections can slow down a store.

 

I have already assigned my products to their correct categories

For example

White wine

Red wine

 

 

I also need pages with descriptions about producers and grape varieties. I can do this either with pages or collections.

 

IF i add these as new collections (for example merlot collection, chardonnay collection etc etc)  i will need about 3 times as much collections in total. 

 

The collections themselves will not be big, from 5 to maybe 30 products per collection. Also i am not worried about confusing the customers with many collections as i will keep the menu simple and easy.

 

So, will this have a negative effect on the performance of the website? 

 

Alternatively i can create /pages with producer or grape profiles and link to the store to show those products

 

 

Thanks,

 

Yiannis

You don’t need to worry about the number of collections. We see stores with thousands of collections that still perform well.

I don't think they will affect anything.
If the page speed slows down, you can try using apps to speed up your website and improve your SEO ranking. There are quite a few very well-reviewed apps out there
