Adding Entities to Your Store

Before you can create a product, you must have an entity to map it to, so that customers can find the product in your store. Entities are what the software calls Categories, Departments, Distributors, and Manufacturers. Products are generally grouped into one or more of those entities. As with products, entities have many attributes that affect their use, which are explained in detail here. This guide covers creating a very basic category.

1 - First, click on Organization -> Manage Categories in the admin menu.

2 -To create a category, click one of the green plus (+) buttons on the grid view. The + button at the bottom of the page will add a new category. The + sign button next to an existing category will add a new subcategory under that one.

3 - Give your category a Name, and click 'Add New'
