On the a category product listing page in your store's Admin area (Catalog > Categories > Products):
Use the "Cross" icon opposite a product to drag-n-drop it to the required position in the list.

To set a product position in the list:
Hover a cursor over a product you want to edit to see the editable fields.
Edit the value of the Pos field. The less the number is, the higher the product position will be.
