1. Set up sub categories

Original Categories

A Category has product A + product B + product C
B Category has product D + product E + product F

 

Setting up the category hierarchy

Set A Category as main category
Set B Category as sub category

 

The order of products in both categories will be:

A (Main) category: product A + product B + product C + product D + product E + product F
B (Sub) category: product D + product E + product F

 

When unassign a sub-category, the products will be go back to the original order as below:

A Category has product A + product B + product C
B Category has product D + product E + product F

 


2. Bulk assign products to sub categories
