Within this article we will go over the best ways to pick the perfect category for your product.
With nearly 700 categories on the platform, the quickest and easiest way to find the correct category for your product is to use our search option. Just start typing the first few letters of your product (or the category you think it will fall into) and all potential results will appear.
You can select up to 3 categories per product
When uploading your new product, on the left hand side of your screen you will select Products. Once this has been selected, you will then Add New Product (as shown below).
The first option when creating your new brand is to select the product category. As mentioned above, just begin to type the first few letters of your product and you will be provided with a list to select from.
It is critical that you select the correct categories to list your products within, as most buyers search by category.
Select the most relevant categories for your products, bearing in mind that for some products there will be multiple options within one master category. (For example, if you are listing a chocolate product you can choose between 'Everyday' or 'Premium & luxury' in 'Food & drink confectionery', or can choose 'Chocolate' in 'Gift food', or can choose various chocolate options within 'Baking and beverages').
If your product only really fits in to one or two categories, just select these. We allow multiple categories to allow for products that are relevant in different areas, but if your product fits firmly into one category you will get the same results from selecting that one category.
