What is type, category and sub category?

Type: A grouping of similar kinds of manufactured goods or products, For example Books, Electronic, etc.

Category: It is a way to organize products in your store by the type of product you sell. For example, if you sell Book products, then your category might be Academic, Fiction, etc.
Sub-Category: A subordinate category or a division of a category of product you sell. For example, if you sell Book products, then your category might be Academic then your sub-category may be Medical, Law, etc.

Currently shopnix stores supports three tier category. For example 3tier.png
