Product Category

In WooCommerce you can easily group your similar products under a category, making it easy for users to scan and find the products.

Based on your need you can nest one product category under another in WooCommerce. Simply put, you can create a category and assign it as the parent or subcategory of another category. For example, we categorize T-shirts, Tech Covers, Caps, and Accessories under the parent category “Clothing”. Here is the screenshot to show the subcategories of Clothing
