Manage Categories

From Organization Menu, click Manage Categories

Categories are a way of organizing your products so that customers can browse your site more easily, similar to manufacturers and departments. It is not absolutely necessary to use categories, but most sites are going to be improved by this kind of organization.

To create a category, click on the Categories menu in the admin site, then click the Add New link in the tree. For an explanation of all of the fields that can be set for each category, see here.

To assign a product to a category, open that product in Product Manager, click on the Mappings tab, and check the desired category/categories.
