Collections Creation Guide
Collections are sold to subscribers as individual purchases or are included in subscriptions. They are comprised of media assets, such as videos, audio and documents. Collections require metadata, images, description and pricing. While optional, trailers and sizzle reels are also a great selling tool for collections.
From your Dashboard, select “Collections” from the left-hand menu.
Collections Type and Accessibility
Type: Select if you are building a Standard or Bundled Collection.
A Standard Collection is comprised of either single digital assets or multiple digital assets. Most collections are Standard Bundles. Create a standard collection by selecting " +New Collection".
A Bundled Collection is comprised of multiple Standard Collections. You will use this feature to bundle similar collections together to sell as a single collection. Create a bundled collection by selecting " +New Bundle".
* Subscriptions are created in the Subscription Center and not on a collections page. Learn more about creating and managing subscriptions in the Subscription Center.
Access Type: Determine who can access your collections.
- Requires Purchase: only accessible with purchase
- Free: allows anyone to access the collection
- Members Only: the collection is only accessible to members (limited to a select few themes)

If you have a trailer for your collection, customers can watch it before making a purchase. Trailers must first be uploaded to the Media Asset Library before adding it into a collection.

Vertical Cover Art: add a high-quality, vertical image (.png or .jpg format) to your collection pitch page, like a film poster or DVD box cover. The vertical cover art displays on the collection page in the image insert on the banner.
Horizontal Cover Art: add a high-quality, horizontal image (.png or .jpg format) to your collection pitch page. It displays on the homepage as the collection image. If a vertical cover art image is not uploaded, this image also displays on the collection page in the image insert on the banner.
Collections can have multiple prices, including one-time purchases, rentals and installment. If creating a collection to be included in a bundled collection, then a price is not required.
