With Shift4Shop, you have the option of allowing product sorting based on several parameters. These sorting options can be displayed on your store's category, browse by manufacturer, and browse by price pages. When arriving to these pages, the store will display the products in the default sorting order you select. However, your shoppers can also select which order they would like the products to be displayed in - after the page appears - using the same parameters.
Here is a list of the current parameters.

To edit your store's "Order By" display, follow these steps.
Log into your Shift4Shop Online Store Manager and, using the left navigation menu:
Go to Settings > General > Store Settings.
Once there, click on the Product Display tab found at the top of the page.
Under the "Home Page" section, look for the "Hide 'Order By'" checkbox.
Located underneath the checkbox, click on the Edit Settings link.
At this point, you will see all of the sorting options that the store has available. From here, you can name/rename the sorting options, change the order in which they appear on the pages, and whether or not they are visible. To select which of the sort options you'd like to have visible:
Mark its respective "Visible" checkbox found along the far right.
Click Save at the top right of the page to set it.
Once completed, your shoppers will now have the Order By options available to them in the storefront.
