HI just wanted to see if anyone else out there sold the following products and could point me in the right direction of product category they have it under in Hardware!

 

I sell, Wall Ties and Damp Proofing kits - these products are NOT on the Full google products list and cant find a good filtered category.

 

Any help would be great.

 

Cheers

for google_product_category --

503744

Hardware > Building Consumables > Protective Coatings & Sealants

otherwise, google_product_category is not required for most products --
alternatively, submit product_type with a more appropriate taxonomy,
using standard > breadcrumbs, that is relevant with respect to the
exact physical product being sold and shipped.
e.g.
Home Improvement > Building Supplies > Weatherproofing > Damp Proofing Kits

otherwise, posting a url link to the specific physical item being sold
may allow other forum-members to offer more specific suggestions.
