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 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. 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 under Products -> Manage Products, open the product in the grid view and click on the Mappings tab. Check the desired category/categories and click Update.
