Display a Summary Description for Top-Level Product Categories
Boost SEO and improve conversions!
Boost your site’s rankings by optimizing your category page descriptions. According to Ahrefs:
Look at almost any big Ecommerce retailer. You’ll see that they include unique descriptions on their category pages. There are two reasons for this: (1) it tells visitors more about the category they’re viewing, and (2) it helps Google understand what the page is all about.
With the BSD WooCommerce Product Category Description plugin, you’ll be able to set unique descriptions for each of your product categories.

How to Add a Description
Open your WordPress dashboard and select Categories from the “Products” menu:
Find a parent category and click edit (you’ll know it’s a parent category because child categories are automatically prefixed with “–“):
Locate the “Product Category Description” field and enter your description (note: this field is only available for parent categories):
Now, open your store and select a category. Check out your awesome parent product category description!
