Category Field (Bigcommerce)

Modified on Tue, 07 Nov 2023 at 03:27 PM

The category field will set the product from category to subcategory as well. 

Map the category field to the matching column in the feed if there are three columns in the feed file. Then, mapped it accordingly as this Cat1>>Cat2>>Cat3 (refer to the example above) 

So from the example, Men will be the primary category and Clothes under the main category while T-Shirt under the subcategory of Clothes. When you need the subcategory in the category field can use this field and map it accordingly. 

If the products in the store have a different category name than in the feed. This feature can be used to find and match.

For example, the store category is computer, but the inventory feed category value is PC.

Enter PC in the Find in feed

And enter the computer in the Match with the store.

Stock Sync will match accordingly. It can also add multiple finds and matches separated by a comma.

This field will help to nested as a subcategory for the Product Category.

For example,

When your feed file only provides the subcategory value and doesn't have the parent category. Then, you should map the field according to your feed file. Then, fill in the Parent Category ID in the field.

How do you know about the Category ID?

Below is an example of a URL with the ID 2 at the end of the URL, which gets it from the BigCommerce store.


From the above image example, the Parent Category ID is Software (the ID in BC shows as 2), and the mapping will be Figurine
