Migrate Source Store categories/subcategories into Shopify Automated Collections

Please note that Shopify has a specific system of categories and subcategories. The categories are called collections and subcategories are organized according to product tags. Collections are of two kinds - manual and automated.

Additional option “Migrate Source Store categories into Shopify Automated Collections” guarantees that your product categories and subcategories will be transferred to automated (smart) collections of the 1st level, the products will receive tags and will be arranged to the corresponding collections with all the relations between subcategories of the source store preserved.

It is strongly recommended to choose this additional option while migrating product categories and subcategories to Shopify. It will save you much time and effort of arranging all the tags into collections manually. If you do not choose this option, the categories of the first level will migrate into collections, and the products will receive tags and will not be arranged according to the source store.
