Product Sub-Categories

For some product types, sub-categories may need to be created. For example, the “Drinks”
category can be broken down into the sub-categories of “Fizzy” and “Non-Fizzy”. In order to
do this, follow the above process but ensure that a primary category is selected in the
“Category” field. Save the sub-category as per the below screenshot.
