How to Manage Categories with eShop Builder

The Store Manager within your eShop Builder allows you to create, add, and customise unlimited Categories and Subcategories for your Products. Once a Category has been added to your website, you always have the option to modify or even remove it anytime you want.

Follow the instructions below to know what actions to take and how to do them:

  1. Click Sign Up / Log In at the top of this page.
  2. Select Website Builder from the drop-down list.
  3. Enter your username and password, then click Log In. You will be redirected to your eShop Builder editor.
  4. From the top menu, click Home and select Online Shop from the drop-down list.
  5. Click on the Advanced tab from the left-side menu.
  6. Drag and drop the Online Store widget onto a placeholder on your page, below the Header Area. The Edit: Online Store pop-up box will automatically appear.

    Note: If you've already added the Online Store widget to your page, simply hover your mouse pointer over the added widget on your page, then click the Gear Icon or Edit settings option to access the Edit: Online Store pop-up box.

  7. Click on the Manage Store button from the pop-up box.
  8. From the left-side menu, hover your pointer over Catalog and click Categories. You can proceed with any of the following actions to manage them:
    Add Root Category A Root Category can hold as many Subcategories as you need. Follow these steps to create one:

    1. Click the Add Root Category button at the top.
