    Hi,

    Thanks for using our plugin and reaching out to us. The category mapping feature is specifically designed for marketing channels that use the Google category taxonomy. That is why you will only find the category mapping feature with Google and Facebook feed configurations. Other channels do not use the Google category taxonomy and as such would not make sense to add.

    Hm, I see now where my question was wrong. Thank you.

    Well, I would love this – current category mapping for Google and Facebook feed, and then custom category mapping for any other feed, and user will not choose from predefined Google categories, but there will be just simple text field for any value. When some marketing channel create its own list of supported categories, I am able to match them with my categories by simple copypasting them to these mapping fields. But for now I can’t do anything, and channel rejects my feed because of not using its categories.

    Thanks for clarifying 🙂

    Did you try using rules?

    See this one for example:

    In the above example I have a WooCommerce category named “Electronic Pets” which is changed to “Hello World” by the rule. You could do this for all your categories effectively creating a category mapping using rules.

    Hope this helps?

    Yeah, I know about this … but it’s not quite suitable for less tech-educated users – aka “my clients” 🙂 Their first question would be “Why is it so complicated?”. Some dedicated section would be awesome.

    But thank you anyway.

    I agree. I’ll add an issue to the brainstorm list for our developers how and if we could create a feature for this in the future.
