Store Categories

Store categories allow campaigns to be assigned to a category which is displayed on the left sidebar when one visits the store. For example, you can organize your campaigns by:

  • Fund (PTA, Ed Fund)
  • Program (Athletic Booster, Music Program, etc)
  • Function (Field Trips, School Supply Kits, etc)

Campaigns can be added to a store category and still appear in the storefront. This is a great way to show featured campaigns. Store categories are optional. If you only have a few items in your storefront, there really isn't a need to use them. However, if you are running a few pages of campaigns, it's time to get organized.
