From the Products Menu, click Product Groups.

Categories are a way of organizing your products so that customers can browse your site more easily, similar to manufacturers and departments. It is not absolutely necessary to use categories, but most sites are going to be improved by this kind of organization. 

To create a new category, click Create Category. To create a sub-category of another category, click the + Add button in the parent category row. See this page for an explanation of all of the fields that can be set for each category.

To assign a product to a category, open that product under Products > Manage Products, open the product in the grid view and click on the Mappings tab. Check the boxes next to the Categories you'd like the product to appear in and click Save.
