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/Brand.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory
Warning: include(Mage/GoogleShopping/Model/Attribute/Mpn.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory
Warning: include(Mage/GoogleShopping/Model/Attribute/SalePriceEffectiveDateFrom.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory
Warning: include(Mage/GoogleShopping/Model/Attribute/SalePriceEffectiveDateTo.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 is not a hassle free extension. Its free and it do works but takes time to get it right, but once you do it right it works like a charm. ! :)

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.

I just installed this on my magento 1.7 install. When trying to access my site afterwards I just got an error page saying:
"Service Temporarily Unavailable
The server is temporarily unable to service your request due to maintenance downtime or capacity problems. Please try again later"
Luckly I managed to go back to Magento Connect Manager, the only bit of my site left working, and removed the extension.
I'm now wondering how I'm going to get my products to appear on google with magento, its not looking like such a wise choice any more :-(

Everything is out of stock...
Extension is promising. But if you give something to community, why don't you write 1 page instructions?
It looks simple but there are major flaws. If you don't want to cry for days, buy an extension. Because you will spend days till you solve your problems.
Beware: Configurable products will be out of stock. There is no way to prevent that... So it is pointless to use this extension for configurable product stores such as clothing stores.

This extension installed fine for me, but I cannot get the products to sync up to google shopping.
There are no errors generated, and there is no support for this module without buying a support contract.
Also, if you want to add static values for any of the mappings to google, that isn't a feature that is available in this module. The alternative is adding a new attribute to all of your products and assigning it a value, which is a lot of unnecessary work.
Also, if you want to find documentation for google base, there is some that is on the magento go website, but other than that, it's forums.

Real Big Issue
I have been using this extension for months but now it just gives the error message "One or more google shopping synchronization operations failed because of timeout." i cant add more than 8 products at a time, not great when you have 4000 products to submit.
i have tried all the solutions i can find and still not working
Does any one know a solution for this?
