In this guide, we will look at mapping your own category to your connected sales channel categories.
If you use a system from which we can fetch categories, you'll see them here. If you don't see your own categories here, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will evaluate whether we can fetch your source categories or not.
When you have created a connection to at least one sales channel, temporary or live, you can start mapping your own categories to those of the marketplace.
The category mapping is based on a column called source category, which is the category used in your own system.
Once a category is mapped, all products using a specific source category will have the mapped category applied automatically.
Here is a short video detailing how to map your own categories to a sales channel's counterpart:
- Log into Sello
- Go to: Settings -> Products -> Categories
- Find your desired source category and expand its list
- Click: Select category under your desired sales channel and find an appropriate category
The changes made here are automatically saved and the next time a product using the source category is saved, the mapped category will be applied.
