Product Categories and Subcategories

The Shopping Cart feature makes it easy for you to manage products for sale by segmenting them into different categories and subcategories.

Click the “+ New category” button from the “Content” menu on your app development dashboard to add a new category.

Then you’ll be prompted to give your category a name. In this example, we’re going to create a category for “Jerseys” and then create subcategories for “Football” and “Basketball.”

To edit a category and add subcategories, click on the pencil icon.

From here, we can add our subcategories and images to those categories.

Click the “+ New subcategory” to continue adding as many as you need. The idea here is to make it easier for customers to find your products.

You also have the option to enable the following:

  • Pre-sale info — Will be shown to all users at checkout.

  • Post-sale info — Will be shown to all users after a purchase has been made.

Once you’ve created subcategories, you can start adding products.

Adding and Managing Products

To add a product, click on the pencil icon for the respective subcategory and click the “+ New product” button on the next screen.

From here, can an add:

  • Product title

  • Product description

  • Product options (variant, price, quantity)

Here’s an example of what that looks like:

Note: The product will be shown as sold out if the quantity is zero or left blank.

By default, the Inherit global tax rate option will be selected. But if you uncheck that box, you can apply custom tax rates to specific products.


Here’s a simple explanation of the options you can control from the settings menu:

  • Employee tag — Users with this tag have the ability to view orders, add products, and access other admin features directly through the app.

  • Reseller tag — These users can access specific features made for reselling products.

  • Global tax rate — This tax rate applies to all products. Individual product taxes will override your global tax rate.

  • Currency code and symbol — Currency you’re using and how you want it displayed.

  • Sale Time Limit — If this setting is enabled, you can determine how long a specific sale lasts for.

  • Remove Sold Items — Determines whether “sold out” items remain on your app or get removed.

  • Currency Symbol Precedes Amount — When checked, it ensures the currency symbol goes before the price.

  • Space separator — Adds a space between the currency symbol and price.

  • Allow charging — Enable or disable charging capabilities.

  • Allow tipping — Enable or disable tipping. (Charging should be on to enable tipping).

You can also configure your shopping cart options from the Settings menu:
