Creating and Configuring Product Categories

Product categories are used to keep products sorted. Each Synergy 8 product needs to be assigned to at least one product category, so you'll need to create the product category before creating any of the individual products.

Creating a New Product Category

To get started, log in to the website dashboard and select the Products page, which is located under the Commerce heading in the left sidebar.

Select the Categories button on the top of the page to view all product categories on the website. Click the "New Category" button located towards the top of the page to configure a new product category.

It's a good idea to specify a description for the post category, as it is used for SEO purposes and displayed to users on the website. You can also upload a product category icon.

Clicking the "Save Category" button will create the new product category, allowing you to create products and assign them to the newly created product category.

Where to next?

After creating your product categories, you'll also need to create product brands that will be used throughout your store.
