    Hi saritlotem,

    You could conceivably import listings that have Google Places as their categories, but you can’t import just the categories using the CSV import mechanism. The only other suggestion I would have is importing WP categories directly (since BD’s categories are just a custom taxonomy). You’d need to reference the custom taxonomy type during import, but I don’t know off hand how to even import JUST categories, only listings with categories.

    You might ask on the WP forums to see if they have suggestions.

    if i have already a csv file with just the categories, can i import it to the plugin?
    Thanks.

    Same answer as above: you can’t import just the categories using the CSV import mechanism. It’s intended for full listings.
