Show As : Define how the Products within this Category are listed : Radiobuttons (only 1 Product can then be selected within this Product Category ), Checkbox list ( Multiple items can be selected ) or Quantity ( a text box in front of every product allows the User to enter the desired amount).

Typical usages are:

- Radiobutton : to define distinct options, like hard disk space when setting up a computer

- Checkbox : to define non-distinct options, like additional hardware for a computer

- Quantity : for example to order office equipment, that is ordered in large quantities

Contents : When the box is checked, this Product Category serves as a container, where all Products, marked as an Accessory are listed by default. This Product Category is shown on the product selection tab, when activated using the Order Type.
Live on application : check this box to make this Product Category visible to Users
Title & Description : Enter the title & short introduction text in each language, as defined in SSP.
