Shopping Cart Product Categories

Product categories allow you to group similar types of products. E.g. A category named “Water Purifiers” could be used to group all your water purifier products, so that when a visitor clicks on this category, relevant products are displayed.

To add a product category, select the “Categories” menu item under the “Shop” menu item, and enter the required details to create a new product category.
