To get each product on your ecommerce store covered and help your customers navigate easily to find products, adding categories, tags, and attributes are important. These are a few important features that provide an organized structure to the products on your ecommerce website.
Our product management system lets you add new categories, tags, and product attributes- making it easier for your customers to find relevant products.
Create product categories
Adding a category is the primary way to group your products with similar features. E.g., if you have a clothing store, you might have “Ethnic wear” and “Party wears” as categories.
Create a product category to group your products in Woocommerce products. Add all the required details like category name, slug, description, and thumbnail.
If the category you have created is a subcategory, you can nest it under a parent category.
Choose what you want to show on a category’s landing page by selecting “Display type”. Standard Display type will use theme’s default display. “Products” will display all products, whereas “Subcategory” will only display subcategories. “Both” will display products as well as subcategories.
Adding a product to a category
Products can be grouped into the categories created while creating a new product.

Create product tags
Product tags are finer classification options of products. They are another way to navigate the products on your online store outside categories.
Create a product tag in Woocommerce products. Add all the required details like tag name, slug, and description. Add tags while creating products.
Adding tags to your products
Just like categories, you can add tags to your products while creating a new product.

Add product attributes
Attributes are used to define extra product data like size or color so that customers can find the items that are relevant to them easily.
E.g., if you are having a clothing store, one of the logical attributes would be product color.
A global product (an attribute that can be applied to any product on your online store) attribute is created in Woocommerce product- attributes.
Populate the required details, click on “Add attribute” and start configuring the attribute by adding terms.
Adding attribute terms
Add as many attribute terms as you want by adding name, slug, and description. (In this case, the terms of the attribute “Product color” are Blue, Green, Black, and Red)
Add attributes to products
Add attributes terms to your products while creating a product in the product data Meta box. The selected term will be visible on the product page in “Additional information”.
If you have enabled archives, all the products having black terms will be displayed on clicking on “Black”. This makes it easy for your customers to find products they are looking for based on color.
