Producttype/product category

Hi Google


We are a little bit in doubt how to interpretate your guidelines for producttype and product category. We have received your list with GOOGLE PRODUCT CATEGORIES but it doesnt seem to have detailed levels of categorization for i.e. blouses and T-shirts. It this correct and does it meat that I have to choose CLOTHES as your product category for such products?


Also when setting up the feed does it have to contain all levels of categorization? For example which information should we include in the feed in the below example:


5598Tøj og tilbehørTøjOvertøjFrakker og jakker


Best regards,

Please note this is a community.

For categorization you need to choose the category that best fit your product. For example T Shirts it is
Apparel & Accessories > Clothing > Shirts & Tops

Try to avoid using low level categories, the more specific you are ie : Shirts & Tops the better.

When adding the category value, you add the value that is appropriate for your product. Only 1 can be chosen. For example Apparel & Accessories > Clothing > Shirts & Tops
