Creating Multiple Categories without Multiple Products

Some Zazzle shopkeepers were wishing the other day that they could place a product in more than one category that they'd set up in their Zazzle store without having to create a duplicate product. One example might be if you want orange and white polka dot patterns in the following store categories: Halloween, Orange, and Polka Dots.

You don't have to create duplicate products to get a design to show up in all three categories. Now that Zazzle groups similar items, all you have to do is move one product from a group into each of the categories.
