To create a new product, select the category it belongs to. The category determines:
- sales commissions,
- set of product characteristics,
- position in search results.
Choose the category carefully: you can’t change it on your own after product creation. Products with the wrong category are rejected during the moderation.
To correctly identify a category, use the search by category before creating or uploading products. The template for uploading products can be downloaded or filled out online on the second and third levels of the category tree in your personal account.
Product categories on Ozon #
There are several product management trees in the Ozon system:
- Commission tree: different categories have different sales commissions.
- Attribute tree: each category has its own set of characteristics for product description.
- Navigation tree: categories on Ozon.
The tree in the personal account consists of commissions and attributes trees. You can’t select the category in which the product will appear on the site in this tree.
To assign right attributes to the product and make it appear in the right category on Ozon:
- Select a category in the tree in your personal account.
- Select one or more appropriate values in the Type field.
