Getting started - Before you start to customise your theme
1. Create your collections
You will find that it's difficult to customise your store and it's menus until you have created some collections for your products. Collections are a way to organise your products by grouping them into categories. You can base these categories on similar product criteria, prices, sizes, styles – it's up to you! You create your collections in the "Collections" section of your store's Toolbox.
Once you have created your collections, you will need to add them to your store's menus in the "Store menus" section of your Toolbox. If you don't do this, your collections will go unseen by customers visiting your store. By adding a link to your new collections in your store’s top menu, you’ll make the collection visible, and give your visitors easy access to all the great products you've added to it.

3. Add a few products to your store
The next step is to get a few products set up in your store. Trying to modify an empty store means that you can't preview many of the features that are built in to the theme. Make sure you add your products to one of the collections that you have created. If you don't, they won't show up in your store.
Once you have completed these three main steps, you can then move on to setting up your theme.
