How to show WooCommerce categories in the menu

Categorising  products is a primary practice that every ecommerce store follows. It not just eases the shopping experience of customers, but also helps with SEO. Having categories of products embedded in the menu is a great way to enable quick access for the customer who is usually looking to shop for a specific product or products. In this post, we will explore how you can show WooCommerce categories in the menu.

First, navigate to Appearance-> Menus from your WordPress Dashboard:

How to show WooCommerce categories in the menu - Appearance - Menus

 

On the left hand side, you can see that there are options to add posts, custom links, post categories and WooCommerce endpoints to the menu. There is however no option to add WooCommerce products or WooCommerce product categories. To add this here, click on Screen Options at the top right of your screen:
