Control Panel Update v. 2.5.9
Version 2.5.9 (5 September 2011)
- Google Category Assignment
Google will soon be implementing their own category structure for products. When uploading products to Google Shopping, you will soon be required to select one of these categories for each of your products. The easiest way to do this is to map your existing categories to Google's category structure. Your products will then be automatically assigned to the relevant category when uploaded to Google. For more information, please visit the Manage > Categories section of your control panel and click the "Map Google Categories" button.
You can also manually assign a Google Category to a product whilst editing it using the "Advanced Details" panel.
Google is due to implement this new requirement around the 22nd of September.
