Working with redSHOP Categories
Categories are at the heart of organizing your product catalog within redSHOP. By grouping and segmenting your products into logically defined categories, you make it easier for your customers to better understand the range of your offerings. You have total control over the design and feel of the category pages that your customers see, and the ability to set different individual templates for each category and even offer different layouts for your product displays to make it easier to show your products in the best light. Categories can also be useful when you want to restrict certain products for certain people or companies, which can be done with shopper groups, as well as assigning mass discounts, product wrapping options and shipping rates for specific grouped products.

Custom Fields tab:
This is the space where all custom category fields that are relevant to this category will appear. More information on what custom fields are and how they work and are used is available in the custom fields section, but in general to assign custom fields to a category you need to set the relevant custom fields to belong in the category section and that the tags for those fields appear somewhere in the category template that is currently assigned to that category.
NoteIf you have no custom fields set up for Categories, this view will be blank.
