Category is used to sort and group Items into different sections. This is to help your Consumers to navigate around your marketplace and help Merchants to know how to group their Items.
Arcadier supports 2 levels of categories, Parent and Child categories. Child categories cannot exist without a Parent category; but the opposite is possible. Only 2 levels are allowed because having more will creates complicated (and therefore unpleasant) experience for the Consumers. We always encouraged the use of Sorting and Filters to enhance the search experience and not to rely solely on the use of Categories. And each Item is only allowed to be grouped under a single category.
Example: A groceries marketplace can have a Bakery category (Parent), with Loaves, Toasts, Rolls and Buns as sub-categories (child categories).
