Adding Category Properties


Going to My Store >> Categories allows you to create easily, reorder, add content to categories and sort them. Category properties are very useful when you have a big amount of goods which you want to arrange and sort by different types of categories. Creating Category Properties allows your customers to filter quickly the exact properties and values of the products they are searching for.

For example, if you have a big amount of Headphones, it will be better for your customers to be able to choose their type, color, and other options. In this case, you need to create the properties type, color, and other options so as their values:

1) Go to My Store >> Categories and find the Category you would like to add properties to.
