Products categories offer you an additional possibility to group products as you like to:
* produce reports broken down by Categories (Sales by products report)
* set up discounts for certain Products categories.
It is not mandatory to keep Categories.
To create a list of products categories, go to the Administration panel: Products\Products categories. A categorie value is set in the Administration panel: Products\Products and Dishes\Categories\Product categories field.
Unlike products group, the reference book of products categories doesn’t have a hierarchical structure so all categories are of equal value.
Example of using Products categories:
1) Category Products and Dishes set for breakfast:
2) Category Light First course:
* Meatball Soup
* Chicken broth
