Setting up categories for your products is one of the first things you’ll do after installing VirtueMart for Joomla 3.x. In our fictitious online store, we will be selling various technical books. For example, we may have books on Linux, HTML, and even CSS. The first product category we will create is Operating Systems. In this category we will sell books related to Linux, Windows, and other operating systems.

To create a new Product Category in VirtueMart:

Step 1: Log into your Joomla Dashboard
