As part of our service to customers, TRDP categorises products into our standard categories. We have tried to identify and name categories that will fit in with the ways in which most wholesalers and retailers view their products.
We are aware, however, that there is no such thing as a ‘typical retailer’, which means that some retailers will want to establish their own categories. With the ShopMate system, you can choose to assign products to your own designated categories rather than use the default TRDP categories.
If you decide to use this option, all of your stock will need to be categorised into your own categories, otherwise you might have some difficulties with your reports.
