  9. Once you've created a category, remember to create a product or edit existing products.

Tips and Best Practices

  • Main categories can only have two levels of sub-categories. So "Clothing > Women > Shoes" would work but "Clothing > Women > Shoes > Sandals" would not.
  • While not required, adding keywords in the Title and Description fields helps customers find you through search engines like Google.
  • To see how it looks to customers, select Website in the dashboard for Websites + Marketing or View Store in Online Store Premium.
  • Use the pencil icon to change and edit existing categories.
  • Use the trash icon to delete catogires you no longer want.
  • InstantPage users cannot create more than three categories.
