Google Content API for Shopping
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.

I have some problem with extension.
I saw in magento system.log this error
Warning: include(Mage/GoogleShopping/Model/Attribute/Color.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory
Warning: include(Mage/GoogleShopping/Model/Attribute/SalePrice.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory

Warning: include(Mage/GoogleShopping/Model/Attribute/Name.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory
Warning: include(Mage/GoogleShopping/Model/Attribute/Description.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory
I think that’s happened because google shopping api has been updated.
Please, can you help me with this problem.

This module is an embarrassment. You can get it working great if you've got an extra 5-10 hours. Generates tons of failed include notices out of the box, among other problems. Don't know why they release stuff like this.

Once you can active it, it's very simple to use.
Need more detail on how to configure it.

Good products - needs documentation
Product is working as advertised HOWEVER - it could really use some documentation - if nothing more than to point you to this link (https://support.google.com/merchants/answer/188494?hl=en) where you find out all of the various attributes that are required by google for the various categories your products might be in. I had to create about 4 new attributes and then map them in the google api section in the Magento admin before i could get a successful submission to google.
