Assigning Products to a Category via Drag and Drop

You must assign a product to a category (that is assigned to a catalog, that is assigned to a site) for the product to be visible in the storefront.

In Business Manager, you can assign products to categories from the product editor and from a category page. You can unassign a product from a category in the same way.

  1. To assign products to a category from within a product: select site > Merchant Tools > Products and Catalogs > Products > product. see Assigning Products to a Category.
  2. To assign products to a category from within a catalog: select site > Merchant Tools > Products and Catalogs > Catalogs (Beta) and select a catalog.
    The following instructions are for assigning products to a category within a catalog.

    The catalog page opens, showing two panes: Categories (tab) and Products.

  3. Click the Assign button in the upper right of the window to assign products to the category.
    Click the Assign products link if you have no products assigned to the category.
  4. In the Assign Products pane, you can search for products as follows:
    • Enter a product ID or name and click the search icon.
    • Check Enable Multiple IDs, enter a list of IDs, then click Search.
    • Click Advanced. On the Select products page, you can perform a simple, advanced, or by ID search.
  5. Select all products you want to assign to your category.
    Assigning a variation master or variation group to a category assigns all variation products to that category. You can also assign just one variation product to a category without assigning the variation master.
  6. When you have selected the products you want to assign, click OK.
    The products appear in the Products pane.
