Google Trusted Stores
I am running v18.104.22.168 & I have looked at all the instructions so many times & verified my user name & password & I still keep getting emails from Google - Google Merchant Center data feed file status on "Insert the name of your cancellation or shipments feed here.txt": No items inserted.

Okay, so I got the whole thing working correctly by installing the AOE Scheduler to generate our feeds and upload them.
HOWEVER, something with the cron job is not working correctly to "automatically" upload our cancel & shipment feeds to Google every night as it should.
Looks like we will have to manually generate and push the feeds every day from the AOE Scheduler for now.
Magento ver. 22.214.171.124

HI... installed the extension, generated the feeds, google fetched no issues all went nice... Validated the badge on Chrome & IE9, but for some reason can't validate it on mozilla, I'm using the latest version.
Also cant validate the order success code, placed few orders and can only see the banner on the top saying it passed, but with no badge on the bottom, in the source code and I'm not seeing the code for the order success page, just the Trusted Stores Badge Code is in the head section.

A few references for feeds:
cron setup : Please refer to this article to be sure cron is configured properly on your servers and in the appropriate folders : http://www.magentocommerce.com/wiki/1_-_installation_and_configuration/how_to_setup_a_cron_job#magento_and_crontab
Permissions : As stated previously, make sure your 'var' and 'var/tmp' folder are set to 777 permissions. You will find this folder in 'XXXX/var/tmp' where XXX is the Magento root folder and NOT the server root folder

New solution! Using Efficient Order Export from Amasty.com, I set up export profiles to generate both data feed files with only the needed attributes. I used the built-in third-party data export function to get tracking number and tracking provider. In the profile, I had to update the date format to just use "Y-m-d". Then I set up Google Merchant Data Feeds to fetch these csv files on a schedule (have to modify settings to "Use Quoted Fields").

Because cron jobs does not work correct, we used AOE Scheduler extension.

Man this process is not simple. I managed to install the extension but the data feeds are not being generated. I read about two cron jobs that need to be running, and I had one manually set up but can't find details about this second cron job. All other tasks are completed, but I don't even see the order cancelation and order shipment data feed documents in Magento. A step by step for manually setting up those cron jobs and getting those files generated would be really helpful.

I got mine to send to google, but it is not pulling the order id: "Missing required attribute: order id"
Also, Is there a way to specify UPS or USPS instead of OTHER?

Greetings. Installed the extension on Magento Community 126.96.36.199 and on a restricted profile when we select the menu option Sales > Orders we get the following error
Fatal error: Call to a member function setAdditionalActionBlock() on a non-object in /var/www/vhosts/<site>.com/httpdocs/app/code/core/Mage/GoogleTrustedStore/Model/Observer.php on line 163
Any suggestions to fix this error?

I already managed to see the cronjobs using a magento extension, I was able to test the validation code, it doesnt show errors, just warnings, but this is because of the implementation of the extension didnt include those values when rendering the HTML.
I can generated the feeds manually using the extension, and upload them, both jobs work fine. However they are not being generated automatically as it should do. I have no idea how to resolve that.
