Categories are a great tool to keep your eCommerce experience user-friendly. Their purpose is to organize inventory items in the various stores.

  • The Corporate Shop displays categories as a sidebar menu.

  • In the Web Office Store, you’ll see them as tabs along the top of the page.

  • In the eCommerce Shop, categories live in the sidebar menu and the Products dropdown menu.

Adding a Category

To add a new category:

  1. Click the + Add Category button.

  2. Complete the following fields:

    • Language - Select from a list of added languages. You can enter localized content in the Name and Description for each language.

    • Name (Required) - Give the category a name.

    • Description - Enter a brief description of the category’s contents. This text does not appear anywhere in the shops; it is only for context for admin users.

    • Stores - Select one or multiple Stores where the category will be visible.

    • Sort Order - Enter a number that determines the category’s sorting. Categories sort from smallest to largest, with zero being the smallest number. Zero is set by default on all new categories.
