Join Tom Geller for an in-depth discussion in this video Categorizing products, part of Create Your First Online Store with Drupal Commerce .

A taxonomy is divided into vocabularies, and each vocabulary is a…different class of category.…For example, let's say that you're selling shirts.…You might have one vocabulary for size, and another for color. Within each…vocabulary are terms that say what the thing actually is.…So the size vocabulary would have the terms small, medium, and large, and the…color vocabulary would have red, and black, and white, and so on.…So first, we are going to have to add a vocabulary.…I am going to call this one Category, and we don't actually have to put in a description.…
