The category taxonomy contains thousands of different categories. It is highly recommended but not required to use the the Nextag category names or numbers but Nextag will accept clearly understandable merchant categories. However, categories that are unclear such as “Clearance Items” or “Gifts Under $25” should be avoided. Unlike the Google Shopping Taxonomy, the Nextag Category Taxonomy is gender specific.
If you’ve ever found yourself asking how do I map my products to Nextag 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 Nextag.
