Categories in an online store provide navigation and group products, making it easier for visitors to reach a specific product section to buy a product. For example, Footwear category will have sports shoes, casual shoes, formal shoes, boots, sneakers, etc. In this lesson, we will learn how to add new category to PrestaShop Store.
