How do I circumvent Shopify’s 1,000 paginate limitation?

The webpage we built to show all inventory in a listicle format paginates at 1,000 products even when setting the limit to 5000 in the liquid code file as shown in the screenshot below:

How can we bypass or circumvent the apparent pagination limit of 1000 that seems to be in place?

 

Considerations:
- Shopify might have an API call limit that is causing this issue.

- Would upgrading to Shopify Plus remove this API call limitation? If so, hopefully, this isn't the only option (Shopify Plus is expensive).

 

Any information would be greatly appreciated as I could not find a clear answer on the web. Thank you.

 

Perhaps @ShopifyDevSup can chime in?

 

Cheers,
Connor

Hi @theDMM 

 

At this moment, Shopify still have limit on the pagination. However, you can use an infinite scroll to load the products when the customer scrolls down. In this way, your page looks like you have more than the limit of products showing.

Thank you for your reply @Made4uo-Ribe 

 

To clarify, I'm not asking about workarounds for the 1,000 item pagination limit from a user experience perspective (e.g., infinite scroll).

 

1) Instead, I'm trying to determine if this limit is adjustable. Our automated inventory data extraction process, which relies on accessing the full listicle data through an Excel button click, is currently capped at 1,000 items. Could you please direct me to the documentation or settings where this limit is defined? Or how we can increase the number past 1,000?

 

2) If this pagination limit cannot be extended, we will need to redesign our automated data extraction method that currently exports inventory data to an excel sheet at the click of a button. If #1 isn't possible and you have any alternative ideas for this, please let me know.

 

Thank you.

Hello @Made4uo-Ribe , does this same limit of 1,000 apply to Shopify Plus accounts? Is there any possible way to list all products, not just 1,000 on a page?
