Add Item Category

Auto-Create Categories

The easiest way to add an item category when entering a new item is to just type in its name into the Add Item form and press enter.


When entering a category this way you can only enter the name. If you need to adjust other details of the category you would need to go to the category details page.

Adding Categories

You can also pre-create your item categories directly.

On the Item Dashboard, under Categories, click Add New Category.


Enter a name for the category. Name is required; all other fields are optional.

The Sort Index is used when grouping items by category in the printed auction catalog. The item list is grouped by category and then sorted by sort index and name within each category. If all categories have the same sort index (the default), then they will appear just sorted by alpha name. If you want to promote a specific category to the top of the order then you can assign it a lower sort index. Lower numbers will be first.

Note that all categories are included in the printed and online catalog by default. To exclude this category from a catalog, click the appropriate checkbox to clear it.

Click Save Category when finished.


The page will refresh so that you can quickly add more categories. When you are finished entering categories, click Back to Categories.
