Firstly, go to the products mapping page and click 'Categories' from the top right corner to view products that need mapping by your categories from your ecommerce store. This is called the 'Category Mapping' page.
To map all products within one of your categories to a category on Trade Me, simply select the suggested category and click 'Save Mappings'.
- ALL products in the category will be mapped to the Trade Me category.
- If the products in the category don't all match to one Trade Me category you can map the products individually in the 'Products' view OR map all products in your retailer category to an Trade Me category then add additional mappings on the 'Product Mapping' page
- For example, lets say you have a category with 60 products and 57 of those products suite one category on Trade Me but the 3 others don't, map all products to the relevant category on Trade Me using the Category Mapping page (see screenshot below) then map the 3 products separately in the 'Products Mapping' page. Search for the 3 products and just add another mapping, this mapping will override the Category Mapping rule.
Relevant points to note:
Any newly imported products in Trade Runner that are part of a Category to Category or Product to Product mapping rule will continue map to that Trade Me Category by default. If you do not want new products to fall into your existing mapping rules then you can delete the mapping rule from both the Product and Categories page.
This applies when doing Product Mapping and Category Mapping. If you select one of the Trade Runner suggested Categories this will 'Create a mapping rule' which Trade Runner will continue to use when uploading products to Trade Me.
