When bulk importing categories on WordPress, you can indicate the parent-child relationship by including a “Parent” column in your CSV file and specifying the parent category’s name or ID in that column for each child category. The importer should then create the hierarchy accordingly.
It’s also possible to use a plugin such as WP All Import which allows you to import data into custom fields, custom taxonomies, and other WordPress data.
