Setting Up Store Hierarchy

Before you begin, carefully plan your store hierarchy in advance because it is referred to throughout the configuration. Each store can have a separate root category, which makes it possible to have an entirely different set of navigation for each store.

Multisite Store Hierarchy

Also consider the prices and product attributes that are needed for each store view. Magento allows for only one standard price with a tiered pricing structure, per SKUStock Keeping Unit: A number or code assigned to a product to identify the product, options, price, and manufacturer.. If you want to use a different pricing structure for a specific customer group in a store view, you must create a unique SKU for each view.
