2. Expand the Categories and choose the store to see its categories. 

3. View the categories' information here.

  • Title: The name of your category (e.g. Yogurt, etc.)

  • Store: This category belongs to the store mentioned here.

  • Department: This category belongs to the department mentioned here.

  • Products: The number of products available in this category.

  • Mark Up %: This means that you increase the prices of all products in that department by a %.

  • Age Verification: Enable age verification for a specific category (e.g. Alcohol, Tobacco) so that customers under 18 cannot order the products. This will be verified on the checkout page and upon delivery.
