Need help with booth cagegories

I’ve let my booth go for a long while, and am now in the purpose of completely re-doing what I sell. I see all kinds of categories listed in my booth – and I don’t want them there. I am specializing in books of various kinds, as well as paper ephemera. How can I delete the existing categories, and add the new ones, please? Thank you

Yes, I believe I have done it correctly, thanks to ccmom. So far, all the books I have listed are in the children’s books category. I’m trying to do this methodically! We’ll see if I did it correctly. Like the Little Engine That Could, “I think I can!”

Good good to see you selling again.

Selling Dashboard
Booth Settings
Categories and Sorting
If it is not selected..

Create your own booth categories Yes

Once selected or if it is already selected, then you will see

Manage your custom categories

Should be a list of your custom categories with a link that says Remove Category

Also a link to add new ones

Well, maybe i got it – managed to get rid of all the unused unanted caregories. Right now, the only cagegoriy listed in my both is Children’sBooks but I did set up other new-to-me cagegories. Thanks.

Glad to help

Do you sell on ebay & are these imported from ebay? I’m having the same problem on ebay but with the item details. I enter all the details of the items (brand/model/size, etc) when I list them. Then I get notification that I need to add the spec’s to the listings. I look and everything I’ve entered is gone. Right now I have over 180 listings that the spec’s have disappeared from. If I have to go back and enter all this info again it will take me days to do it. With over 300 listings up it’s impossible to drag each item out to get the info ebay says I need to add ( that I already entered when I made the listings). They’re just going to have to stay the way they are.
