When creating products for your store on Orderchamp, there are certain requirements for the way that you categorise a product. Let's start off by defining the difference between a category, a sub-category and a sub-sub category.
A category is a group to which your products are assigned based on similarity or defined criteria. Orderchamp has seven categories: Home & Living, Kitchen & Dining, Fashion Accessories, Jewelry, Beauty & Health, Stationery and Kids & Baby. A sub-category is a more narrow product-type, or a subclass of a category. Sub-sub categories are an even deeper specification of that sub-category.
We recommend to categorize as deeply as possible. That is how you are best found on our marketplace. You can assign a product to a maximum of 2 categories or category specifications (subs / sub-subs). Orderchamp will monitor selections and can make adjustments for quality purposes.
If you are listing a pillow in your store, you choose to assign the product to one category, 'Home & Living', within 1 sub-sub category 'Pillows'. Then the product also automatically falls into the group 'Pillows & Plaids'.
If you are listing a product such as a baby blanket though, you may want to assign this product two separate categories, 'Home & Living' and 'Kids & Baby'. Under 'Home & Living' it would makes sense to use the sub-sub category 'Plaids', while under 'Kids & Baby' it fits under 'Baby Essentials'.
Choosing the right (sub-)category
Put yourself in the consumer's shoes. Think of the sub-(sub)categories that you use for each product as 'search terms' or 'labels' that the consumer would use to find your products, and then pick the most relevant categories.
