How to use Shopify dummy categories in SelluSeller?

The category field shown on Shopify marketplace details page in SelluSeller is an internal field which enables the cross-listing feature for all Shopify products.

Earlier while cross listing from Shopify to any Marketplace was not available due to category constraint. Hence to cut down this limitation we are now providing category selection option for Shopify store for product listing.

After listing the product from SelluSeller to Shopify the category field will not be displayed on Shopify. This option is only limited to SelluSeller internal use.

When any product fetched from Shopify it will have default category assigned. If this product is already listed on Lazada marketplace then Lazada marketplace category will get assigned to this product for Shopify store.

You can assign the category to shopify products in 2 ways,
