  3. Click Categories in the expanded WooCommerce menu.
  4. On the left-half of the screen, you'll see an Add new category section.
  5. Enter a Name for the category.
  6. Enter a Slug for the category (or leave this blank for WooCommerce to generate it for you).
  7. Leave the Parent category set to None when you create a new category. If you're creating a subcategory, select a Parent category from the dropdown.
  8. (Optional): Enter a Description for the category.
  9. Select a Display type from the dropdown to customize what is shown on the category page. If you aren't sure, you can leave this as Default.
  10. (Optional): Click Upload image in the Thumbnail to add an image if your theme will display category images.
