*How do I change product primary category? 

Primary Category can no longer be changed in Seller Center once the products has been approved. 

Hence, you will need to create a new SKU with the correct category.

Can I request to add a new category?

No. Our category tree is regionally determined and takes a lot of process and backend database work for it to be changed.

If you are having a hard time in finding the right category for your product, you may try the 'Search for your Product's Category' function on the Add a product page:

Differentiating the kids, babies and toddlers clothing can be done according to age group as such:

1. Babies and toddlers (Boys and girls) - 0 to 3 years old

Clothing for babies and toddlers should be categorized in the Baby & Toddler category

 

2. Kids (Boys and girls) - 3 years and above

Clothing for kids should be categorized in the Fashion category under either Boys or Girls sub-categories
