    I use categories on my site. Say the categories are A, B, C. I have a product in category A. I also add this product to Category C (because it fits) through the Products Information tab under "Categories". Now under "Categories" this product shows A and C. Does Google see this as duplicate content?

        What the others are saying here is that no matter what category the product is listed in, when you navigate to the product from any of the categories, that product has a single unique URL. It is not duplicate content because only one page (URL) exists with that product's information. It WOULD be duplicate content if the URLs were and (unless you had set up one of the categories as a canonical for that product, which is something you don't have to worry about here).
