HitPay allows you to create product categories in your HitPay Online Store. Organizing your products into categories helps customers navigate your store more effectively. For instance, if your store offers smartphones, you can categorize them into meaningful groups such as ‘Android’ and ‘iOS.’ Furthermore, within the ‘Android’ category, you can create subcategories like ‘Samsung,’ ‘OnePlus,’ and ‘Google Pixel,’ providing a structured and user-friendly way for customers to find their desired products.
Managing Product Categories
To manage your product categories:
- Go to your HitPay Web Dashboard.
- Navigate to Products > Product Categories

Assign Products to a Category

Adjusting Product Order:

Rearranging the order of products within a category or in the All Products view lets you prioritize how products are displayed to customers. This allows you to display popular or featured products first.
Rearranging categories changes the order in which categories appear on your online store. This can help you emphasize certain categories, promote seasonal items, or adjust the layout to match changing customer preferences.
