Categories form an important part of the navigation structure of your online store. While formulating categories, ensure a logical classification, to enable your customers to quicker find what they are looking for. Are you finished with creating your navigation? Then you can start stocking your online store by adding your products to the category/categories they belong to. This can be done in two ways:
Adding products to a category
When you have created your chosen categories through CATALOG > Categories in the left menu of the back office, you can continue with adding products. Click on the category you wish to edit. Subsequently select the Products tab at the right at the top of the screen. On the left side of the screen you will now see a row with all the products you have entered, with a green plus icon next to each individual product.
Click the green plus icon to add products one by one. They then will appear at the right of the screen. They will be stored automatically.
Adding categories to a product
Navigate to CATALOG > Products in the left menu of the back office. Click the desired product and select the Categories tab at the top at the right of the corresponding product page. Now you will only have to tick the check box next to the category in question. Subsequently click Save & continue at the right at the bottom of the screen.
