Business Portal: Manage My Store


PORTAL: 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 brands directly on the Business Portal or via the mobile app.

How to add categories


  1. When logged into your Business Portal, select Manage My Store from the menu on the left, and then Brands and Categories.
  2. On the Brands And Categories page, select + Add top right, and then Add category.
