Category name and URL

You can then set the category name and corresponding URL.

Adding content and products.

Once the category has been created you can then edit the page content and add products to display on the page.

By going to the Content/Products tab, you can edit the content that will display on your page. The landing page is similar to any other platform content page and can be edited the same way by adding columns/sections. You can add images and copy, and a shop Content block to select the products you want to appear.
