Product classes is an extention to the Product Attributes feature that gives a . store admin the tools to join products in groups other than product categories and subcategories and use these groups for filtering products in the storefront.

When some products in your catalog have certain characteristics in common and need to be handled together as a group, it may be a good idea to configure a product class for them.

Product classes are listed and managed in the Classes & attributes section (Catalog > Classes & attributes) of your store’s Admin area:
