Hi, 

 

What's the best way to find out what Categories Google wants in my feeds?  I sell mobility accessories and scooters.  I as yet have not been able to find if they offer this?


Maybe I have just missed the list somewhere?

for the google_product_category attribute,

the full lists may be downloaded from here:

https://support.google.com/merchants/answer/6324436

 

simply use a high-level value that best matches the physical item;

e.g.

Health & Beauty > Health Care > Mobility & Accessibility > Accessibility Equipment Accessories
or
Health & Beauty > Health Care > Mobility & Accessibility > Accessibility Equipment > Mobility Scooters
or
Health & Beauty > Health Care > Mobility & Accessibility

 

if there is no exact match, also submit the product_type attribute,

with almost any relevant value, using standard > breadcrumbs;

e.g.

health and household > medical equipment > living aids > mobility scooters
