Products can be grouped together in categories. When an order is placed the user can view the available products in each category and select the required product. Products that are organized into categories are easier to use than a long list of all the available products. Products are assigned to one category, they can not appear in more than one category. If a product is not assigned to a category it will be listed on the web page under a tab named 'No category'.

InfoCategories are not available if you are using Global Products.
