When I visit my shop without logging into my profile in order to see how other people would experience my shop I always see the products displayed by 'default' order.

I don't know how this 'default' order is determined. I would like to be able to be on top of everything regarding how visitors experience my shop. This also counts being able to choose and customize the display order of my products.

I understand that it is a good idea that visitors can choose to have the products displayed by 'newest' or 'A-Z' as they wish... BUT the first impression should be determined by the shop owner.

How is it possible to customize this display order? This kind of have same priority as the display order of product photos for each product, which is currently a mess.

Agreed - we need a good tool for this. Sometimes the order seems to get shuffled without any involvement on my part!

The default mode orders things in the same order as what you would set using the "Shop Inventory" tool which is in the top menu of the SELL page. Some people have problems using the Shop Inventory sorter but I only seem to have problems if I set orders too quickly and the data base gets confused. Any models in individual shop sections are also displayed according to the main Shop Inventory order. Good luck.
