Checkout: Shop Categories« Usage
You can divide your shop into different categories. At least one category needs to be created before you can start creating products.
You may choose to create a simple list of categories such as pens, pencils, notepads etc where these are all main (parent categories). Later on you may wish to use sub-categories for example pens > Parker; pens > Bic etc.
A well thought out layout of you virtual shop will make the shopping experience more pleasurable for your customers and also help you keep control of your shop. It may be a good idea to use a piece of paper first to draw out the categories you will need. Planning ahead will speed up time and you can then add all the categories in one go.
Start by adding a new category.
