Product Categories

What are Product Categories

Product categories organize your products in a hierarchical form. They allow you to divide your products based on their nature. For example, if you run a clothing brand, your categories can be Men, Women, and Kids. These can further be divided according to Product Type such as Lounge Wear, Formals, Swimwear, etc.

Products with similar features can be grouped together. This makes it easier for sellers to manage them and for buyers to navigate across them. These categories can be based on your product’s functionality, demographics, customer needs, or preferences.

In Apimio, every product must be assigned to a category. If no category is assigned to a product, the default category will automatically be assigned to it. By default, this category will be named “Uncategorized” and can’t be deleted.

How to create Product Categories

  1. To create new categories, go to “Product” > “Categories” from the side navigation panel. This will open the Categories Page. Click the “Add Category” button.
  2. To create a new category, add a Category Name. Choose the Parent Category and add a Detailed Description for the category that you have created. This description will allow you and your employees to understand what sort of products are included in it. 
  3. Click Save on the bottom-right of the page. This will give you a new category that you can assign to various products in your catalog that are similar in nature.
