Categories describe the products in your catalog. The products in a category normally have similar properties, like, Pants, Shirts, BedSheets, Fiction, etc. A category can have or more properties such as name description, and image. The properties for the category define what you can use to display on the pages of your site or items for which your customers can search when they browse through your store.
