Categories are groups of products or services which have equal characteristics. Categorising products or services with similar attributes makes it easy for your customers to find and select products. Sometimes, the same product can fall under multiple categories due to their shared attributes. Follow the below steps to manage product categories in your Shop on Cloud.
Step 1 - Log in to your ShopOnCloud admin account.
Step 2 - Click on the “Catalogue” section on the left side menu.
Step 3 - Click on “Category” under the Catalogue section.
Step 4 - Click the “+” on the top to add a new category.
Step 5 - Turn on the “Active” toggle.
Step 6 - Type down the name of the new category.
Step 7 - Type down the "URL Key" of the new category.
Step 8 - Select a “Parent category”. This is the main category, under which your new category would be created and classified.
Step 9 - Type down a description of the category. You can also click the “Show/Hide Editor” button below the description to access the advanced HTML editor.
Step 10 - “Browse” and upload images that will help in elaborating your new category further.
Step 11 - Click “Submit” once you are done.
The categories you have created will help both the customer and the store operators to arrange and location products easily. Your products will be listed in the shop menu under these categories.
