How to add infinite scroll pagination to Shopify collection pages

If your store has lots of products for a specific collection page on your Shopify store? Instead of getting customers to navigate to multiple pages of products you can now add infinite scroll to your Shopify collections pages so customers can keep scrolling through.

The infinite scroll feature helps to gain customer attention. It improves the user experience and makes browsing pages easier. Scrolling is easier for users than clicking (and then scrolling again) and requires less action. Infinite scroll lets users find content they might not otherwise see. The more products your visitors see the better chances they buy from you.

DEMO

On Shopify App Store has some apps help you setup this feature for your store. But if you have technical skill, you can do this manually. Let’s refer the below steps:

  1. From your Shopify admin, to to Online Store > Theme.
  2. Find the theme you want to edit and then click Action > Edit code.
  3. In the Layout section, click theme.liquid to open the file in the online code editor.
  4. Find </head> and paste the below code just above it.
  5. Save.
  6. In the online code editor of collection page find to the loop {% for product in collection.products %} and add more a DIV tag to wrapper and add more a DIV tag just below it. For example:
  7. Add the javascript code to the end of the file.
  8. Save
  9. You are done!

Happy coding!

    This worked for my store, however every item is duplicated immensely and some product images are way too big/small, etc. Off to a good start but I imagine I just placed this in the wrong places.

    Make you didn’t duplicate the initiation code below, it should be placed just once

    document.addEventListener(“DOMContentLoaded”, function() {
    var endlessScroll = new Ajaxinate({
    container: ‘#Huratips-Loop’,
    pagination: ‘#Huratips-Pagination’
    });
    });

      Hi there,

      I just checked your site. To fixed this issue you must re-call the function:

      category_view.changeView(‘grid’, 3, ‘btn-grid-3’)

      after loaded new items.

      The scroll works fine for me. But I am wondering how I could get the items to display based on my theme settings.

      It is set to have 5 items per lime and to keep the text within the width of the picture but when the scroll is active, the text remains on one line and messes up the consistency of 5 items per line and it isn’t looking great. Any idea ?

      Thank you

        Hi Julien,

        I just checked your site. I have an idea for your issue.

        You should add ID name “Huratips-Loop” for the DIV has class name “product-list” and move the DIV has ID name “Huratips-Pagination” out to the product list DIV.

        I hope it is helpful for you.

          Thank you I will look at it 🙂

          I have another issue though. Let’s say I scroll down a few pages, enter a product and go back to the list of products, the scroller jumps up a few rows instead of remaining on where I was. Any idea on why ? Thanks again!

    “In the online code editor of collection page”
    By this phrase, do you mean collection-template.liquid?
