Hi Anna

 

Any changes to Google Product Category must be made within your feed itself, and be as close a match to the item as possible, following the taxonomy.

 

https://support.google.com/merchants/answer/1705911

 

Be sure to select the correct language to match that of your target country.

 

Once changes have been made, simply upload your feed once more, making no change to the feed name and these changes will override the current google_product_category.

generally, either edit the data-feed file directly
or simply contact the third-party supplier who
is maintaining the e-commerce (shopping-cart)
system that is generating the feed.

if a third-party is being used to generate the feed,
the third-party support organization would usually
need to be contacted directly for instructions --
e.g. volusion, ekmpowershop, amazon (webstore), etc.

 

as was indicated, select a google_product_category value that best

categorizes the physical item and is listed as a google-defined value

for the appropriate target-country.
