How To Create a Product Category

Creating a category for a group of products is an initial step to start with. Then, you can add your product category to the products page.

Examples for main categories can be:

  • Men Shoes
  • Women Wear

Examples for subcategories can be:

  • Men Classic Shoes
  • Women Home Wear


Always try to unify the way you type the name of your category, for example, small case or upper case.
