Why Category Slider for WooCommerce is important?

In a WooCommerce store or shop, there are many products and their categories. Generally, the product categories are not highlighted well in the store. That’s why your potential customers can’t understand what categories of products are being offered or sold in your shop.

Category Slider for WooCommerce lets your visitors find the category they are looking for without struggling and looking all over the WooCommerce store or site. You can show more product categories at the same time and let them scroll automatically in a slider or show in grid or block view so that your prospective customers can see them all. This makes your shop or site look much more professional, clean and sharp in your customers’ eyes.

If you can showcase your product categories in the strategic spots of your store or site, it will effectively increase the conversion rate and achieve the goal!

Plugin works as expected and without any problem. Highly recommended if your theme don't have any option for categories display.

I'm a power user that really appreciates having a large slew of customization options. Great plugin and worth the $$ because there's no free alternative out there with this much power. Especially useful if you need multiple galleries that may change occasionally, and don't want to monkey around with clunky hand-coded solutions.

I rarely review plugins on WordPress but this plugin is a lifesaver and it works perfectly! I am so grateful for this plugin, honestly. The plugin offers great and free features if you want to make a slider type product category, unlike other plugins and widgets. It made my page aesthetically beautiful and I highly recommend it.
