Manage product categories

If you’ve got a handful of products to sell, organizing them into a few nice and tidy categories makes it easier for customers to find what they want to buy. It can also make managing your products behind-the-scenes a lot easier. 💪

When you create a category and add at least one active product in, a link to that category will automatically appear in your store navigation on the Products page. Some themes, like Neat, even include an option to use categories (or “collections”) as a landing page for browsing products.
