Overview

Google Shopping Feed

Google Shopping Feed from Rocket Web is the only recommended solution for Google Shopping in the January 2014 Magento Search Engine Optimization book from Packt Publishing.

New videos! Checkout our extension page for General Configuration and Apparel Configuration videos.

Simply put this is the most advanced, feature rich extension for Google Shopping in existence. If you don't just want to get some of your products, somewhere in Google Shopping listings but rather want to do everything you can to dominate Google Shopping, this is the extension for you. Installation and configuration help is available from an expert.

This extension meets international requirements and all specifics for apparel products as well.

As with any Google Shopping extension, expect that you may have to do some data entry to be able to send Google info it requires. Our extension make this as painless as possible to format a feed according to Google's full specification.

The features of this extension were driven by an internet marketing expert, not developers. The main goal was to get as close as possible to excellent feed data + zero maintenance once the feed is setup. Plan to invest a few hours to watch our videos, read documentation and work with your store's catalog data. Or you can contract Rocket Web to do this for you. Either way, this may very well be your best investment of the year. Installation instructions, videos and extensive documentation is available on the product page for Rocket Web's Google Shopping Feed for Magento extension.

Rated 0 out of 5 by Hi there, My feed is targeted at the UK and Google are rejecting the feed because there is no [shipping] attribute specified. This URL: http://support.google.com/merchants/bin/answer.py?hl=enamp;answer=188494#GB (under [shipping]) explains that it is a required attribute for the US, UK, Germany, France. I'm confused by which attribute to use as the requirement from Google is that the colon-delimited values are required (eg GB::Royal Mail:4.12 GBP,GB::Courier:10.00 GBP). Any help would be most welcome. Thanks for the great extension. July 4, 2012

Rated 0 out of 5 by Hi there, I am using Google Base Feed Generator extension in my magento website - version 1.6.2 http://www.priddi.co.uk/ We have more than 1000 SKUs at the moment. While clicking the ‘Generate Feed’ button, getting an alert message and there is no feed generating. Error getting :: “Feed generation will not allowed, too many products. Magento Cron will create the feed on a nightly basis. For testing purpose please use test button below.” I have also tried by selecting the ‘Use Batch Segmentation ‘ option to YES and limit set as 1000. But still the same error. I have cleared the all type of Cache every time when I am having any changes in the admin panel. Also set cron job to generate the feed, still no luck… Please help me on this issue.

Rated 0 out of 5 by Finally it was rather easy to configure and make this work. So, a greaat thank you to the author. I have the following problem: I've set some catalogue rules and while in the fronted I can see the correct promotionned/final product price, the feed exports the initial/regular price (the one before applying the promotion rules). I tryed to play whit the mapDirectivePrice function in RocketWeb_GoogleBaseFeedGenerator_Model_Map_Product_Abstract with no result. Does anyone else has the same problem ? or any solution ? Thanks again. June 2, 2012

Is the license based on number of Magento installs? Or by the number of stores on the same Magento install?

Answer: 
This is licensed per Magento install. So if you have 100 stores views in a single Magento install that's one license. If you have 2 stores, each with separate Magento admin login locations, that's 2 licenses.

I searched on internet they mention the steps:
1) select System > Configuration
2) under Sales, select the Google API tab.
3) Click to expand the Google Shopping section.

Answer: 
Our extension does not use the Google API but rather generates a text based feed on your server. This feed can then be updated via cron on a nightly basis. When you log into Google Merchant Center you can then point Google to this feed and tell it to fetch the feed each day as well.

I'm getting a "404 page not found" error when I try to enter the tab of the plugin in Systems >> Configuration.

I've followed the instructions provided and replaced the files via FTP and I've also flushed the cache. Can you please advise what I need to do to fix this issue.

Answer: 
Yes, this can happen sometimes when installing extensions. If you log out of the admin and log back in, the issue should fix itself.

Answer: 
On Feb. 17, 2015 Rocketweb's support gave the following response to my similar inquiry:

Inquiry:
"Does your extension support multiple simultaneous feeds for different countries? An example would be an account with 1 Canada feed and 1 USA feed."

Response:
"As of the latest version each store view can only generate 1 feed so if you have different store views that correlate to different countries then our extension would work in this instance. We will be releasing a version that outputs multiple feeds per store view but additional steps would need to be taken for targeting different countries with multiple feeds since certain countries have different specifications."

Answer: 
You need title column mapped to concatenate directive with an expression like: "{{manufacturer}} {{name}}".
Attributes used in the expression will can take values from parent for associated items, just like they are defined under Configurable or Grouped sections: "Fetch title from"

This feature is only available for the version 1.6.0

Hi there

I am having trouble generating a feed from the admin panel, I have been able to generate multiple feeds in the past.

When I press "Generate Feed Now" a new window opens and then nothing, it doesn't time out it just displays a blank window. I have left this window open for over 12 hours and still no indication of anything.

Can anyone suggest anything to try? I'm quite desperate and need to get this issue fixed.

Answer: 
If generating the feed file from the extension seems to be timing out you may have to increase the memory in php or the max execution time. Also, please make sure that there is enough space where the feed file is written to. In addition, check the apache error logs and see if increasing the apache timeout setting. If you are still having trouble please submit a ticket at help.rocketweb.com and we would be more than happy to help.
