Assigning Multiple Categories with the Import Tool:

You can use the import tool to assign a product to multiple categories:

  • The category list is placed in the CategoryList column of the .csv file.
  • Multiple categories are separated by a pipie (|). If it is a nested category tree, seperate the parent categories with a GreaterThan(>)character, and for each additional category tree the product should be listed under, separate by a pipe(|). Example: ACCESSORIES>TABLEWARE>SPOONS|ACCESSORIES>TABLEWARE>EATING UTENSILS - this example will place the product in the Spoons category as well as the Eating Utensils category.
  • The first category will be assigned as the primary category. In this example, Spoons.
  • If the category does not exist when it is uploaded, a category of this name will be created. The upload tool will create the entire tree if it does not exist.
  • Your product can belong to as many additional categories as you would like.
