Step 8 In 'Product Collection Restriction', select any, in, or not in.

Note

Adding Product Collections allows you to control how an influencer chooses your products. If there is a restriction then, for example, the influencer will only be able to choose 1 product from collection A and 1 product from collection B.

Step 9 Choose which collection you want each product selection to come from and save.

Note

If collection restrictions are set for product selection, then the influencers will select in the order the restrictions are set. For example, for the screenshot below, Influencers will first be required to select "Product #1" from the "Classic" collection and then they will be able to select "Product #2" from the "Signature" collection.
