Magento Categories Setup

Check out this short tutorial on mapping Magento categories to products in Sellercloud.


While categories are created in your Magento Admin portal, Sellercloud can download your existing Magento Category tree so you can assign products to these categories from within Sellercloud. Sellercloud will then include the list category-related information when updating Magento with product information.

To download the categories, go to Company Settings > Magento > Categories and click the link Re-Download all categories as shown below:

Next, set categories for a particular product on the product’s Magento Properties page as shown below, and Save.

To update products in bulk with Magento categories:

  1. Bulk-update products with the column header MagentoCategoryList. The expected value is the numerical category ID as shown in the above image next to the category name. If a product is a member of multiple categories, multiple category numbers can be uploaded by separating the numbers by commas.
  2. Proceed with either of the following methods:
  • Inventory > select products > Action Menu > Bulk Edit Magento. Select category from the tree. Select to add as an additional category or to replace existing category selection > Save.
  • Inventory > Import Product Info > Import Product Magento Attributes > download the template.
