We were recently asked to add a testimonials section to a Shopify site, and came up with a nice, simple solution to build the page using products and collections.

While the initial thought was to use a “page,” this would potentially leave our client copying and pasting or even sifting through code to add a testimonial. A blog would work, but would not leave us with the ability to reorder the testimonials.

So, we created a new collection called “Testimonials,” with each product being an individual testimonial. This also allows you to easily separate out the person (title), quote (product description) and image, and keeps the design of the page flexible. Our collection template has some logic to display a different layout for the testimonials.
