Products and categories in osCommerce can be managed through the administration panel.

  3. Please enter your category name for all the languages you have in your shop.You can add the category image and specify the category Sort Order. The ‘Sort Order’ field is used to determine the order of the categories in the list. You can use negative values if necessary. If two categories have the same value, they will be sorted in alphanumeric order.
