Creating Categories and Sub Categories for Products


Parent Category Creation for Products

Each product must be assigned to a category. For example, face products can have facial care as the parent category. There are certain default categories that are present in the system, by default

To create a category for Products, perform the following steps:

  1. Ensure you are in the Admin mode and at the Organization level.
  2. Click Categories in Admin Dashboard.
  3. Click Products.
  4. Click Add on the top right corner.
  5. Enter appropriate details in the fields by referring to the following field description table:

    Field Name


    Category Code

    You can give the category that you create a unique code for identification. For example, Skin Care can be called SC.

    Category Name

    Name the category based on what it will cater to. For example, Hair Care, Body Massage and so on.

    Parent Category

    Since you are creating the parent category in this procedure, you do not have to select anything in this drop-down list.


    Describe this category. For example, Body Lustre products give a long lasting glow. This description will not be visible to the customers.

    Display Order

    The order in which this category appears on the Webstore and the Customer Mobile App (CMA). For example, if you enter 1 as the display order for Body Lustre, then Body Care will appear as the first item in the Products list on the Webstore and CMA.

  6. Select the Show in digital catalog check box if you want the category to appear in the catalog.

  7. Click Save.

 Sub Category Creation for Products

To create a product sub category for a parent category, perform all the steps as described in the previous procedure and select a parent category. See the following screenshot for a better understanding of how the product sub category will appear for a product parent category.
