Google Content API for Shopping
Product submission selection options
I've used this extension for a few months now and find it extremely useful.
I would like to suggest one improvement, the option to filter products by 'availability' prior to submission.
Submitting products that are listed 'Out of Stock' slows or even halts the submission process with Google Merchant and are rejected by them.
This option to filter would vastly improve the functionality and speed up the process of submissions.
Otherwise a great extension.

Blank white page in admin
I have just launched my store at the following
and would desperately love to use your Google API shopping extension which I have used ucessfully on other sites.
I have installed it, cleared caches, re-indexed etc etc, but when I click the Sales > Google API link in config I get a blank white page.
I have tried to contact you via support but receive a message to say you're not receiving messages?
Please can you help me with this?

No Support for Configurable products with Simple products
We have a apparel Magento store (1.6.2) and are running into issues when sending configurable products to Google shopping.
We are using the Configurable product with simple products configuration and it seems that the configurable products are not being sent over to Google. Only the simple products are.
We've added the "Item Group ID" attribute to Magento and are using the Parent's item SKU as the value for all configurable product and it's children. We also have it mapped out to "custom attribute, no mapping" in the Google API Manage Attributes area.
After checking out the API request errors from Google, it seems that the configurable product is being rejected because it's missing a "size" attribute. But in our store only the simple products have a size value ex: "S", "M", "L", "XL", and the configurable product doesn't.

We liked your extension very much.We are facing issue in your extension while upgrade our magento version. Recently we have upgraded our magento version from magento1.6 to magento1.8.We are tried to upgrade the magento version using magento connect.But while upgrading we are getting following error.
CONNECT ERROR: Package community/Mage_Core_Modules 126.96.36.199 conflicts with: community/Mage_GoogleShopping 188.8.131.52
Due to this error we are unable to complete our upgrade.So we tried to uninstall the extension using magento connect.But we are unable to uninstall your extension using magento connect.So we planned to uninstall the extension manually.I able to find the adminhtml files and etc modules only.After removing the files also,still the extension is displaying magento connect manager.
Can you give the extension package for us.I mean zip format.It will be very useful for us to uninstall the extension.
And also If your extension is compatible with magento1.8 we will greatly appreciate it.
We are looking forward for your reply.Please can you reply ASAP.

Need to know info to get this working
Great Guide!! But you must MAP Shipping now
If you cannot connect to google you must do this!!
In a new tab, go to this URL: https://accounts.google.com/DisplayUnlockCaptcha
This URL is an unlocker tool from Google. Basically, as Google support explained, the Google connection has been blocking third party applications (in this case the Go connection). You sign in there, and you have a very short window to go into the application, try to sign in, and it sends a signal to Google that that application is the one you want unblocked.

CORE Product? Bugs, No Support, Very Limited
Very Poor Module. Wouldn't recommend using for CE. It needs some serious development to function properly.
We have thousands of categories module is very linear as mapping are concerned.
We have a large dedicated,(Which you'll also need to run this 24/7), but Magento CE API is slow and the bugs in this program are too many to count.
No real support.
Disappointment is an understatement. Definitely would use if it worked as intended or support was there.

No Admin options
I have installed this extension and there appears to be no issues during installation. I also see the extension in my Magento Connect Manager but when I go to "System --> Configuration --> Google API" there is no Google Shopping section.
I have cleared the cache, deleted cache and session info the the VAR folder and also logged out and back into the admin. Nothing works.

Works as Described
Takes a little time to set up and get products accepted, but once past the first hurdle, you're good to go.

Great Free APP
It was a hassle to set it up. I figure it out within 2 hours.
Now, I will do it in 20 minutes.
It is very important to have your atribiutes asingn properly to your product.
