What are Taxons?

Taxons are more likely categories where products can be categorized or grouped. You can build any categories tree based on your needs. Taxons works in a hierarchical way e.g. for software you may use: 

Category (main category)
-- Wordpress Extensions
-- Joomla Extensions
-- Templates
    -- Joomla Templates
    -- Worpdress Templatess
In order to display Taxons as menu on the Shop Front, main (root) category name should be "Category"
