Hi guys today we are going to see how you can create product categories to your e-commerce website let’s say you have an e-commerce website and you have products like this on the website and now we decide to create categories like this okay so basically when you click on the main you want it to display all the products in the main category and basically that is how we are going to create some of the categories and then you can do this


by the end of watching this video anyone who sees your website will be able to find the product they want as early as explain this you can check my other videos how to create e-commerce website that’s it’s it’s for people to easily identify items when they come on your website so it’s very important that you create such categories on your e-commerce website once you have created e-commerce website


you can follow this so to create without categories these are the three steps to see how we are going to add this product categories in these three steps here is an example of product on our website but there are no there are no product categories to show you to add your product categories you go to your dashboard and then you go to products and then you click on your categories so a new page will pop up and then enter the name of your category you want to create for the particular products you have so we are going to create a category called main we click on add new category now as you can see any category has been created called so in the same way you can create as many as categories you want so the next i’m going to read another table called women okay so you enter there and then you add it to the categories

so we have the woman categories created successfully there and then once i have created the categories if you go here and click view you should get you should be able to see a category is created so this is an empty category it is not there is no product which has been assigned to this category okay this means that the category does not have any product assigned to them so now we go to the step two of this tutorial which is to add products to your categories that is first you create categories and then second add product to the category so through adding the product you assign categories to the product or you are selling products to categories you come to products and then you click on all products you see all the products you have on your website.


so first you need to select the products you want to assign category to the categories have been created and then you have also created the product already and so you assume that this product you have rightly do not have not been assigned to categories remember in the beginning i said that you have an e-commerce website and then we have product available on the website.


so uh this product on the website has not been assigned to any categories yet and we want to create some new categories and i signed a product to them and that is how can we have this product listed here okay so let’s continue so first you need to select the product which you want to add to your categories that you have created which is the main and the woman categories okay so i’m going to select this products for now and then to assign them to the categories that i’ve created okay now these are the products so once i’ve selected the product click on block okay and click on edit

it all right i did explain this earlier on that it’s a product that you guys you you forget to add un assign a category to a product and then you publish there you publish the product this product automatically goes into the on one categorize because it looks like yeah you do not know what to choose or which categories which category to choose for your product or you don’t know


what you are doing and so the system decides to save this product that you have posted on your website into the uncategorized category and then sometimes to if you forget it it means that the system has to have a default option for you because the system do not know where to place it for you because you forgot to choose a category so the system automatically drops it into the uncategorized


category now what we are going to do is that we are going to rename this uncategorized category to something else that will be able to make sense in case and we forget to we forget to add a category to our product we are going to change the category name to our changes go to our


dashboard and go to product and we go to categories so you go to product and you select the categories here you can see in the uncategorized over there you can see that we have a lot of products on on categorized cutting board so we click on edit to be able to make changes to the name and then you change your name to all products and then you update it that means you click on update to make the changes now you can see so now you can see that you have to change the category you need to from all categories to all products now if you go to app store create and then you you check the name we change as you refresh it so you refresh it and then you see how it changes from it you know so the default category okay


so next thing we are going to do is to create sub categories on the website like like this let’s say you have a set of categories underneath and you want to create a separate category for those products which is choose okay so you drop it under men you can do that easy right clicking subtitles for the main category which is the main so the subcategory will be choose so to create this category sub categories so go back to the dashboard and then you click on products and then you click on categories okay
