How to Change Variations and Attributes Sort Order

Product Attribute/Variation Sort Order Type

To change the attribute or variation sort order type alphabetically, by term ID, or a custom sort order:

In the left-hand menu, click Products and then click Attributes.

On the  Attributes page, hover over the attribute you want to change (in this example Size) and click Edit.

In the Edit Attribute page, open the Default sort order dropdown menu.

There are four different options here. Custom orderingNameName (numeric) and Term ID. Select the order you require and click Update. (In this example we are selecting Custom ordering).

You can now check your template to see if the ordering is correct.

If you want a completely custom sort order for you attributes/variations, continue to the next step.

Custom Attribute/Variation Sort Order

If you selected Custom ordering in the previous step, you can now set the custom order of your attributes/variations.

In the left-hand menu, click Products and then click Attributes.

In the main Attributes page, hover over your attribute (in this example Size) and click Configure terms.

In the product attribute page (in this example Product Size), hover over the attribute and use the three lines to drag the attribute up or down. In this example we are moving the size M (medium) above L (large).

Once you drag and drop the attribute, the setting is saved automatically, you do not need to click save or update anywhere.

Now go to the Product page on the frontend of your website and check that the new custom order is correct. Make sure to clear any page caches if configured.
