More on sorting and filtering
Enabling sorting will provide your customers with a dropdown menu that they can use to select how the products are listed, based on their preference.
Enabling filtering will give the customer access to a sidebar filtering system where they can select specific product details and then be presented with a product list matching those details.
You can find a full guide on setting up sidebar filters linked at the bottom of this article.
