Shopping: Product group - Subdivide All products by... Category.

Hi,

 

I'm organising the Shopping Campaign into groups to make it more granular.

 

and I can't see the option "Category" when I go to:

Shopping campaign > Ad group > Product group > (+ sign) subdivide All products by:

 

Shopping. Category Option.jpg

 

I've seen video tutorials that have the option "Category" on top of Brand, Item ID, Condition,..   What could be the reason that I can't see it?

 

See here the example I refer to:

Shopping. Category Option Google..png

 

Thanks!

Carlos

Hi

From what I understand you want to subdivide 2nd level. like category = x then inside that brand = y.

If that is the case

 

1st step you have to create subdivision with category and save it.

2nd step you should click on + sign again to the right of your subdivision and then you should subdivide this time with other attribute brand. 

 

this way you can sub divide up to 7 steps.

 

Hope this makes sense

Hi Theniks,

Thanks for your anwer. Its very clear, useful and I'll have it mind.

The problema that I have is that I can not see the option of "Category" in the dropdown list of attibutes.
I only see:
Brand,
Item ID,
Condition,
Product type,
Custom label 0,
Custom label 1,
Custom label 2,
Custom label 3,
Custom label 4.

Do you have any idea why is this happening?
May be I'm using the old shopping version. How could I double check that I'm updated to the new shopping campaign?

Thanks a lot!
Regards!
Carlos

are both the product_type and google_product_category
attributes being submitted with proper and valid values
within the submitted (feed) data?

 

has a different browser been tried?

Hi Celebird,

I was thinking about that possibility..
How can I check it?
How do I download the data feed to see all the attributes in the same document?

Thx

if the data being submitted is uploaded using a feed (file),
then a copy of the (data feed) file that google has received
can be downloaded in the merchant-center by navigating
to the data-feeds tab, clicking on the (inserted) link under
the status column, and then clicking the download-feed link --

I am having the same problem.

 

Did you figure out how to subdivide by categories?

 

THanks

not seeing the category in the drop-down menu
sometimes happens when the browser zoom is
set too close.

try a different browser or try resetting the zoom
level on the browser, to the (100%) default value,
or both.

below is a video showing how to subdivide
all-products and how the menu should look --

otherwise, a shopping-campaign product-listing-ads
support specialist at google may be contacted directly.
