How rule based Category mapping works in Discogs WooCommerce Integration?

DisConnect allows you to map your Discogs products to be synced to the particular categories in your WooCommerce on the basis of Genre, Style, Format, etc. so that you can arrange your products without any confusion.

Once you log in to DisConnect, you will land on the dashboard. Here you need to click on the Mappings section and then go to WooCommerce Mapping.

Here are two options. One is Field Mapping and the other is Category Mapping. On the right side of Field Mapping, you will see Category Mapping. Here you can map various Discogs products into your ideal WooCommerce categories with ease.

To do the mappings please follow the steps given below.

Step 1: In your Woocommerce account first you need to add categories and tags for the products. You can see the image below for your reference.

Step 2: After adding categories in your WooCommerce, you have to go to Category mappings in Disconnect and click on the “Refresh button”.

Step 3: Now click on the Add Mapping Rule and enter a Rule Name according to your preferences and choose the particular Discogs entity type(Genre, Style, Format) from their dropdown according to your Discogs product which you have selected to perform category mapping with WooCommerce.

You can also map them according to their Sleeve and Media condition to separate new vs old or as per your preferences.

Step 4: Next, you need to select the category of Woocommerce and tags, which you have already added from your Woocommerce account. You can make up to three categories, Parent, Child, and Grand Child category for our category mapping.

You can add multiple rules to determine how your Discogs listing will sync & appear on your WooCommerce store for corresponding categories & tags by clicking on the Add Mapping Rule option.

Step 5: You can also add a default category for the items for which you have not created any mapping rule.

Please make sure to select all the Discogs conditions correctly to match and sync the products to WooCommerce in the right categories. The default category and tags are the same that you have already created in your Woocommerce account. If there are no matching records, we will choose the default values for the category and tags which you have provided. After clicking on the update button, the mapping rules are set and your Discogs products will now fall under the respective WooCommerce category with the corresponding tags.

Note: Please make sure to do all the mappings before you start the sync



Some examples for your help –

  • 1. If you would like to create mappings on your WooCommerce store based on Genres like Rock, Pop, etc,

Do the following

When you create your first mapping rule, Select the respective genre(s) and then select your corresponding WooCommerce Category (Named based on the Format say Rock) and the corresponding Tag that you’ve already created on your WooCommerce store from the drop-down.

You can create multiple rows for every category/tag you’d like to create on your WooCommerce website.

  • 2. If you would like to create mappings on your WooCommerce store based on Formats like CDs, Vinyl, etc,

Do the following

When you create your first mapping rule, Select “Format”, and then select your corresponding WooCommerce Category( Named based on the Format say CD) and the corresponding Tag that you’ve already created on your WooCommerce store from the drop-down.

You can create multiple rows for every category/tag you’d like to create on your WooCommerce website.

This is how WooCommerce Category mapping works. Once you’re done with field & category mapping, check out the Attributes mapping and then wrap it up by configuring the final settings on your Discogs & WooCommerce channel settings and you’re now ready to start syncing your products from Discogs to WooCommerce.
