1. All Product Feeds #
Here, you will find all the feeds you generated, listed in one place.

And you will also be able to check the number of products added to the feed.
2. Add New Feed #

- Here’s a guide to learn how you can generate a product feed.
3. Category Mapping #
Some marketplaces require you to submit product categories according to their own set category values.
So, rather than changing categories in your store, you can map your categories accordingly using the Category Mapping page.
Here’s a complete guide on using the Category Mapping feature.
4. Google Merchant Settings #
Our plugin allows you to Auto-sync your products to Google Merchant Center.
You will be able to connect to Google API for auto-sync here.
**Please note that this feature will work for many and may not work for some people due to Google’s API access restrictions. So, rather it’s best to use the alternative method to set Google Auto-sync which is a faster process.
The following are guides to help you out with it.
