POS: Adding categories to your store


You can easily group and arrange the products you sell into brands and categories.

Why would you want to do this? For example, coffee can be bought from various brands such as Rosetta, Origin, Truth and Deluxe. But those same coffees can also be diversified into categories such as americano, espresso, etc.

You can create categories directly on the mobile apps or via the Business Portal.
