Options available at this page include:
[Map Selected Categories] - only highlighted categories and their products will be linked with the corresponding eBay categories.
[Clear All Mapping] allows to cancel the previous mapping.
[Automap Relevance] means a minimum measure of compliance of the target results assigned in the search request. In other words, the greater percentage in this field, the greater conformity (similarity) will be between eBay products and items, which are exporting.
