How do I set the Category ID for my data feed?

This article is ARCHIVED.
The information in this article is likely to be out of date.

For categorization, we recommend that you add a field to your store catalog called shopping-category-id. Then, populate it with the appropriate category from the Taxonomy. You should select the single Category ID of the most specific category that applies to the product. For example, you would enter "419" for a telephone, which would place it in the "Electronics > Communications > Phones" sub-category.

Our template is already configured to map this field from your store catalog, otherwise, you can change the field name by going to Manage > Define Fields. The automatic/manual categorization provided in your merchant account is usually not as reliable as this method.
