    New to AM. Just looking at v4 now.
    Wondering what is the point of product categories.
    Just a way for admin to organize lots of products? That I can understand.
    But I sense there might be more to it.

    The docs tell me what to do, but not why. In particular:

    Just wondering if any experienced users can say something more about this (save me experimenting to death).

    Thanks.

    Categories can be used for number of goals.
    1 - it works for content protection - you can specify product category, instead of individual product selection
    2 - signup forms visibility
    3 - admin interface grouping
    4 - yes, in shopping cart categories are used to display products

    To see the hidden category, use this code:
    http://"yoursite"/"your area amember"/cart/index/index?c="code of your hidden category"
