Using product categories, you can organize your store products to help you locate them more quickly at your point of sale.
Product categories were previously called product collections.
All your products are automatically added to the "All Products" category. You can also add products to other categories so that they appear in more than one category. For example, if you have a pet shop, you can create a "Dog" category and a "Cat" category, that contain dog and cat food respectively. You can also create a general "Pet Food" category that includes the same products that are in the other categories.
