Category hierarchy defines the structure of the product catalog. You can build and maintain a category hierarchy on the Category page. You can add sub-categories (also known as nodes) to a category, add an image, reorder categories, and associate products, thus building a hierarchy. Most implementations will have an existing hierarchy.

You can create multi-level categories. For example: Home > Laptops > Model.
