Easily Create Categories for Your Products with Virtually No Limit

Shopify is a great platform for any merchant with a product or service to sell. However, one major limitation with Shopify is that lack of a comprehensive categorizing system. While there are apps out there that attempt to add the ability to create multiple categories, they are clunky and difficult to use. Both sides of the purchasing process desire a better system:

  • Online shoppers need a system that allows them to find what they are looking for quickly and easily while also being mindful of other products that they may be interested in purchasing in addition to their original search

  • Merchants need a system that easily adapts to changing product offers and services, and is unbounded by technical limitations

Categories takes the ability to create categories out of Shopify Collections and gives merchants free reign to customize their product categories to be as deep and intuitive as they want. The system is designed to provide merchants with the following:

  • Virtually unlimited nesting capabilities

  • Easy-to-use interface

  • Drag-and-drop new and existing Collections into categories with a simple click and drag of the mouse

  • Advanced settings for more efficient placing of products in their appropriate categories

  • Better search engine indexing of your product pages for better SEO

  • Create custom Collections with their own descriptions and titles for more accurate and diversified categorizing

  • Add existing Collections to new categories for more fluid product searches

  • Select main categories to instantly see their entire inventory trees

This application works exclusively with smart collections. See our FAQs above for the instructions on converting existing custom collections to smart collections.

Great App! Not having the Category Tree in Shopify like we have had in our Xcart store was a major issue during our migration. The BTP app solved this and has allowed us to have a very similar navigation structure to our previous store. Support is top notch. Always quick to answer and address any issues that we have run across.


its a good app but its only problem will work with sidebar theme's only.


This app is the best category app period. We have several hundred collections that we were able to organize into a category tree. We're incredibly happy.

$10.00 / month

The application is $10.00/month with no additional fees. We offer support on the use of the tool. Styling, design, and other customization services are also offered at an additional fee.
