Google Shopping - Category
The Google Shopping Category field should hold a value from a standarized list of a category names provided by Google. You can use the Ablestar Bulk Product Editor to modify the Category for Google Shopping in bulk.
- This field tells Google Shopping how it should categorize the product
- The Category field is stored as a product metafield in Shopify. The Google Shopping channel will use the value of the metafield to sync the data to Google Shopping
- You can download a list of all product categories from the Google Merchant Help Center (direct link to the text file)
- Apparel & Accessories > Clothing > Dresses
If you include both values separated by a dash (for example, "8 - Arts & Entertainment"), the app will extract the category ID (in this case "8") and just use that.
