What is a Product Category?

A Product Category is a general label such as "Coffee", "Dress", or "Pizza" that can be applied to a group of products. Product Categories are useful because you can filter searches (eg. in Products) by Product Category. When you create a default menu for the first time, product categories are used as the menu tabs.

To view your list of product categories, go to Products > Categories.

You can also have a category tree, for example, “Cold Drinks” inside the “Drinks” category. To do that, just drag and drop categories to change their relationships. You can drag a category inside another, or drag a sub category outside the parent.
