Sort Options

When you shop on Amazon, we want to help you easily find items you'll want to purchase, whether you know exactly what you want or need help. Some sort options available on Amazon are:

  • Featured: We consider a variety of factors when choosing Featured shopping results, including customer actions (such as how frequently an item was purchased), information about the item (such as title, price, and description), availability, costs (such as shipping costs), and whether we think the item will be of interest (such as new items).
  • Avg. Customer Review: Sorts items based on customers' reviews, including the average number of stars out of 5 stars given by customers and the number of customers' reviews for each result.
  • Price Low to High: Sorts items based on their price with the lowest price item at the top and the highest price item at the bottom.
  • Price High to Low: Sorts items based on their price with the highest price item at the top and the lowest price item at the bottom.
  • Newest Arrivals: Sorts items based on their first date of availability on Amazon.

Tips for finding items:

You can search for items by entering a few words into the search box, and we'll show you matching results.

On desktop:

  • To browse by department, select a product department from the drop-down menu next to the Search box and click the magnifying glass icon. Each department will offer its own customised options to search and browse. For example, if you'd like to shop for books, on desktop you can select the Books department in the Search drop-down menu.

On Mobile Browser or the Amazon App:

When using mobile web or Amazon mobile app customers can search books by:

  • Clicking on the menu button and selecting Books in the Shop by Department section.
  • After you enter a search on mobile you can use the Filter option in the right sub-menu to further refine your search, based on specific criteria such as Delivery Day or Seller.

Depending on the product department you choose, you'll see specific refinements that are applicable to the selection.
