- Click the button
- This will open a modal window where you can select products for your collection
- Click the Create a new collection button
- Reorder items if needed and click Insert collection button
- Inside your post content, the collection should look like this. You can edit it from here
If you are a part of any affiliate program like shopstylecollective.com,
you should grab a code from the platform and paste it directly into your post content.

For this location, you can use the WooCommerce products or external Affiliate Platform code.
