How to Edit Product Category Name

Unfortunately, It’s not straightforward as you cannot edit the Product Category Title directly, but there is a way!

Changing Product Categories on Google Business Profile

  1. Create a new product category (as shown above)
  2. Move all products from the old category to the new category
  3. Refresh page


It’s unnecessary “complicated” but it is the only way to edit/change Product Category Name at the moment. Hopefully, Google will change this soon.
