What are product classes?

The Product class menu under product's Grouping section allows you to choose an appropriate class for the product. For example, if you sell men's shirts, you can choose that it belongs to class "Clothing and Accessories > Clothing > Tops > Shirts." Additionally, you can select attributes included in the class, such as colors, sizes, age group, gender.

Classes also assists in creating product variations when the product is available in different sizes or colors, for example.

What are the benefits of product classes?

Adding classes to products is not mandatory, but it has benefits in various aspects:

  • It enables filtering products based on the chosen attributes.

  • It provides information about the product's class to Google and Meta via product feeds, allowing you to better utilize the functions of those services.

  • You can create product variations based on the classes you choose and their attributes, such as color and size selections.

How to add product classes?

Classification is done through the Grouping section on the product page. Enter a descriptive keyword, such as "Jewelry," in the Product class field and choose the most suitable option from the suggested ones.

Once you have chosen the product class, you can then add related attributes from the Attributes section located under the Grouping section. For example, if you chose "Jewelry" as the product class, you can select "Jewelry Material" as an attribute and then choose the materials used in the jewelry, such as "Gold" or "Silver."

Creating variations through classes

Adding classes to products makes it easier to create product variations. For example, if you added class "shirt" and its attributes to a product, you can easily define product variations for the shirt, such as sizes or colors.
