PrestaShop Category List Management

Having an ability to perform multiple manipulations with your PrestaShop category list using functions placed close to each other makes category management fast and convenient. Since PrestaShop admin functionalities provided for category list ordering are quite limited, Store Manager tries to enable the missing options.

Besides basic PrestaShop category tree management possibilities, Store Manager offers a bunch of out-of-box options unavailable on PrestaShop backend. Let’s check their full list and learn their benefits.

Apply Category Filter

Filter out categories in one click. Just input the name of category and press ‘Apply the filter’ button. The function is a must have for merchants owning big stores.

  • You can set up the filter telling it to search by exact phrase or by all words.

Change Category Position

It is possible to change PrestaShop category position by drag-and-dropping. Click on a category and drag it to necessary place.

Assign Categories

Store Manager allows to assign PrestaShop product to multiple categories or subcategories at once. You just need to tick necessary categories and press ‘OK’.

Right-Click Menu Options

Copy/Paste Categories

You can clone PrestaShop category and paste it to another category via context menu in a moment.

  • You can choose whether to copy the category with its products or with its subcategories or not.

  • There are two paste methods available: insert category to the root category or insert it to the selected category.

Set Enabled/Disabled

Using the context menu, you can disable a (sub)category, so it will not be displayed on the front end.

Associate with Shop(s)

You can make a category visible for any of stores either with its products or without them.

Assign Image to Category

It is possible to easily add an image to PrestaShop category or subcategory using ‘Assign image’ function or simply by drag-and-dropping the picture on the ‘Drop image here’ place.

It is tremendously important to keep your category tree well-organized, because usually shoppers search for products by category names, e.g. Dresses, Laptops, Accessories etc. Having your categories mixed up or containing wrong products might push your customers away and make them leave your store to save their time and nerves.

Rich PrestaShop Store Manager’s category toolkit at hand allows to easily handle even a very complex category tree structure. Most of the options are available in the context menu, so you don’t have to constantly look through the toolbar to find a necessary button. Bearing in mind that many of the above listed functions are unavailable in PrestaShop admin, Store Manager seems to be a perfect tool for keeping your store neat and well-structured.
