Once you have no inventory items in the cat in question the category will disapear, I believe. So you need to either re categorize your items and not use the cat in question, or delete any items left in that category. Let me know if that make sense. Thanks

Hi @fuyugipa!


Erica here from Shopify.


To add further context to what @Fayyaz_Ahmed  mentioned. You can also remove a category from the panel on the left of your Admin.

Select Products, then Collections:





Click on the category that you would like to delete and scroll down to the bottom of the page. Click on Delete Collection:






You can find all the info about creating and managing Categories, searching for Collections in our Help Center.


I hope this information helps, however, should you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reply back here and I'd be happy to help out!


All the best,

Erica - Language Care Guru @ Shopify
