Your eCommerce website has a structured hierarchy consisting of Storefronts, Catalogs, Categories, and Products with Add-Ons. This hierarchy determines when and where items are displayed on your Storefront.
NOTE: In order for a Product to be viewed on the Storefront, it must be assigned to a Category. That Category must be associated to the Catalog assigned to the Storefront.
A Storefront is an eCommerce website containing a catalog populated with categories and products. These Storefronts can be general for all customers or dedicated to one customer.
Each Storefront will display one catalog at a time. A Catalog is a grouping of categories. Category Associations within a Catalog determine the hierarchy of product categories as seen on the Storefront.
Categories will appear on the navigation bar as either parent or child categories. A Category is a grouping of Products.
Products are the merchandised items available for purchase on your Storefront. Each Product can include an image, product attributes, description, and Add-Ons.
Add-ons are used to gather additional information for configuring products.
