How to Create a Category

Creating store categories can help your customers better find the designs and products they are looking for within your store. If  you’re an API user, creating a category is required for the template buffet.

To create a new store category, go to the store products section of your store and click the ‘All Categories’ link on the left-hand side of the page.
