Hiding categories

You can hide a category in your catalog so that it does not display to customers, for example, if the category contains out-of-season merchandise. If you hide a category, the products and SKUs within that category can still be found in a sales catalog or during a search. To hide the products or SKUs, you must clear the Display to customers check box in the product or SKU properties views.


  1. Open the Catalogs tool.
  2. In the explorer view, find the category that you want to hide.
  3. On the Manage Category tab. Expand the Display section; then clear the Display to customers check box.
    The category is now hidden from customers.
  4. Click Save; then click Close.
