Product Categories: Add the product category you want this addon to be applicable to. This will help you in the seasonal and time-specific addons.

Please note that the Product Category chosen must match with the category label on the products. For example, if your product only is tagged in Facial Care, and you select the addon Product Category “Wellness & Care”, the addon will not apply. Make sure that the Product Category tag match with the Single Product Category.
