Adding products to a category [NB]

Categories are an important part of the navigation of your online store. Create categories to help your customers quickly find what they're looking for, and assign products to categories.

To create categories go to Creating categories.

Once you add products to a category, you can determine the order by which products in the category are displayed to your customers in your online store. See see Reordering and managing products in a category.
