How to Get Started

Creating Categories in your Online Store

Creating Categories from TAKU Retail

Product categories in your online store can be automatically created from your TAKU POS categories once the integration is activated. The first time a product category is created in your online store from TAKU, it will be created as a 1st level category. Once a new category is created in TAKU eCommerce, you can drag-and-drop it to any level as required (e.g. as a sub-category).

NOTE: A reminder that inventory items in TAKU POS can be a part of multiple categories in TAKU eCommerce, regardless of the level.

  • Go to your Control Panel > Catalog > Categories.

  • Once the "Categories" page opens, click the "Add Root Category" button.
