Rename or delete a category

Who can use this feature?

Available on all plans

When a category is no longer needed, it can be renamed to become a new category or deleted. Renamed categories retain the products originally assigned to them. Deleted categories are permanently removed from a webstore, but the products inside them are retained and searchable.

👍 Tip: Every product in Market needs to be assigned to at least one category to be visible on the webstore.

Rename a category

A category’s display name lets shoppers know what the products in that category are used for. If the purpose of a category changes at any point in time, it can be renamed.
