  • Specify company name - shouldn't have Inc. etc.. read the policy on company names
  • Specify website URL - should match the webstore URL, the upload fails without it
  • Make sure to specify this at the top of Settings as well as in the "Customer Service" information bucket
  • Click on Data Feeds and create a new feed. The name of the file should be "google-product-search.txt"
  • Click on Settings > FTP and create a username and password
  • This takes 15-20 minutes to go into effect on Google's end
  • Go to merchant account and click on data feeds to see the last upload time and status. The status should change to processing first, and then it should say 0 of N (0 of the N product uploads succeeded). If everything goes well, it should show something like N of N. It may take several minutes for it to show up. Then they should also show up in My Products etc.
  • The feeds are uploaded every day around 12:30 AM PST
  • It will take Google 24-48 hours for the items to be inserted. In the meantime, please ignore the error warnings from Google feedback summary emails
  • Enable Data Feed - Set to "Yes"
  • FTP Username: Enter the username entered in Google Base setup (Settings > FTP)
  • FTP Password: Enter the password entered in Google Base setup (Settings > FTP)
