Customers who are browsing on Shopify stores usually enjoy seeing a specific product's page after clicking on a product image on the collection page. In fact, by inserting links to the collections in a menu in your store's navigation, this action can really help customers find and see many categories. At the same time, you can view, create, and edit collections or categories from your Shopify admin's collections page.
As a result, in this article, I will provide you with step-by-step instructions for adding a category to your Shopify store.
What is a category?
One of the highest classes for most objects to be grouped based on similarity or defined criteria is known as a category.
A category is also known as a collection on Shopify. More specifically, products are frequently grouped into collections in order to make it easier for customers to identify their products. Category is the name of that group collection. For example, a category could be clothing collections for men, women, or children. It can be items of a specific type, such as cosmetics or housing, or it can be items on sale or seasonal products.
