WooCommerce Frequency Asked Questions

What is the difference between the main category and a subcategory?

Subcategories are completely optional and are often used when you have a lot of different product types in the main category.

For example, if you are selling men's clothes then the main category should be "Men's" and the subcategories should be "Men's Shoes", "Men's Jeans", Men's" Jumpers" and "Men's Accessories".

It would make more sense to add your products to the subcategories if you are using them in your WooCommerce store.

Is there a limit to the number of categories I can add to WooCommerce?

In theory, there should be no limit to the number of categories or subcategories you can add to your WooComemrce store, but it is worth planning out your category structure before you start adding them to your website. You can do this in an excel spreadsheet to a word document.

Do I need an additional plugin for setting up product categories in WooCommerce?

No plugin is required for setting up main categories or subcategories, this functionally is built directly into the WooComemrce plugin.

Can change the order in which categories display WooCommerce?

In the website admin control panel you can drag the categories into a specific order as required. Categories are displayed in the main shop pages in your specific order.

For the top navigation drop-down menu, you need to create and position the menu items using the menu builder in your website admin control panel for WooCommerce.

What is the best WooCommere Theme for 2021?

At DCP Web Designers we use the Flatsome Theme which allows us to customise a website shop for different types of products.

The theme you select will determine the amount of control you have over your website shop.

Faltsome is great for building custom eCommerce websites.
