I have downloaded the list of Google Product Categories and identified the correct categories, do I then enter the code into the box below? What if there are two categories it fits?

Google only allows for one category to be used to identify your product. You can enter either the ID of the product category or its name in the "Google product category" field. I understand that it might be a challenge to pick just one category, however Google recommends to choose the a category that is more in line with the main function of your product. What is the product you're wanting to publish?

In our old Google Shopping app, you could only sync the first variant for the product, but our current app allows all variants for a product to be synced. It can take Google about a week to sync all of your variants. While waiting, the products will show as "Pending" on the Google Shopping app. Read more about setting up the Google Shopping app here.
