This is an accepted solution.

Hi, @landc1!

 

My name is Tira and I work at Shopify.

 

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?

 

For more details on how product categories work, check out these resources:

Google Product Categories - Google help documentation

Add a Google Product Category - Shopify help doc

 

Let me know if that helps!

Hey, again! 

 

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.

 

Let me know if you have any other questions!
