Merchant Tools // Creating a Primary Category
When adding a new item to your website, you may notice that the categories that you set when starting out with CitrusLime Ecommerce don't seem to match what you're attempting to sell.
Creating a new category is simple. To begin with, log into your Merchant Tools. From the navigation on the left, select Site Management and then Category Manager.
Categories are built up using three tiers. Taking this example, the first tier is 'Primary Categories', which will be selected on all products when activating these on the website. The second tier is 'For Bikes'. This details the type of category. The final tier categorises all products that are 'for bikes'.
To create a new Primary Category, right click on the text. This will then display a range of editing options.
From here, you can create a new Primary category. Once the category has been created, right click on this to add your sub-categories. You may wish to plan this out on paper before creating these within the system. Once you have created the category, ensure that it is activated. As long as these categories are active, you should be able to select them when activating an item within Merchant Tools.
