Order pages: creating sub-categories

Enabling your customer to quickly find the products and services they are looking for is crucial, especially if you have a wide product portfolio. We’re making it easier for you now with the ability to divide product categories (ie. order pages) into sub-categories. This new feature will allow you to better organize your products and create a simple product hierarchy. This way you can for example categorize domains dividing them into subcategories such as: Popular, Business, Premium, New, gTLDs etc. or your cloud services organizing them geographically: USA, UK, Asia, Europe, Australia

The new feature allows to create one level of subcategories. Any main category (order page) may now either contain only products or may branch into subcategories. A subcategory can’t be further divided into another level of categories, it must contain products/services. This way we can create the following hierarchy: 

  • Main category (id=1,parent_id=0,contains=categories)
    • Subcategory (id=2,parent_id=1,contains=products)
    • Subcategory (id=3,parent_id=1,contains=products

Creating sub-categories is very easy and it can be done when adding or editing an order page. With a select box you can decide if the main category will contain products (by default) or subcategories. You can then choose the order page template. The sub-categories can be displayed in client area in a form of list or boxes. Clients can browse the content of the sub-category after clicking on it.
