Shopzilla Category Taxonomy

The Shopzilla taxonomy and category list can be found by reaching out to Connexity here.

The category taxonomy contains about a thousand different categories. What you’ll notice off the bat is that the top-most categories like Babies & Kids and Automotive don’t have category ID numbers. This sometimes leads to cases where there isn’t a perfect fit for many specific products that don’t fall into the categories with IDs.

Other key things to keep in mind are:

  • You have to use the category ID number, not the category name.
  • Don’t include commas in the category IDs
  • You cannot specify multiple categories

If you’ve ever found yourself asking how do I map my products to Shopzilla categories, we can actually do all the heavy lifting! We have a function that can easily map your categories from Google Shopping to every other engine, including Shopzilla.
