I've uploaded my product feed with the category numbers as per the google taxonomy but none have been accepted.Should I use the category name text instead?

Thanks

Dave

Hi @Dave T

 

Do you mean Google Product Category?

 

If so, then the values listed in the taxonomy should be used under the google_product_category header or tag, depending on feed format.

For example - Arts & Entertainment > Hobbies & Creative Arts > Musical Instrument Accessories > String Instrument Accessories > Harp Accessories
