Is well known that the percentage of successful purchases is inversely proportional to the number of steps the user must complete to complete the purchase. That why should strongly consider the possibility to include the Products or Products Categories directly in your WordPress Mega Menu, as this is the first section of the site.

Adding a WooCommerce Product Category to a Menu

After creating your shop and adding the Products and Categories, some new metaboxes will we available in your WordPress menu editor, and if you know a bit a WP is pretty obvious that you can include them in the menu with a few clicks.

However, this function is quite basic, since it only allows to show a normal link to the categories and a very valuable information, such as price, description, and rating, will be lost.

That is why in Quad Menu we have included specific functions for WooCommerce, allowing you to show the most important information of the products and even the add to cart button directly in your menu.
