Google Trusted Stores
Simply doesn't work
The feeds don't upload to Google. We received an email from them asking for a manual feed or else we'll be suspended.

Won't install on PHP 5.5
Was hoping to use the official extension to make it all work seamlessly.. Failed at the first hurdle as it won't install on a recent version of PHP 5.5.
So, if you care about security and keep your PHP versions up to date... better go back to the drawing board and do it yourself.

Ok, version 13 was awful, but 14 showed improvement. However, if time lapses from the time this plugin was installed or last run you may receive timeout error messages with PHP Memory.
My work around was in the \app\code\core\Mage\GoogleTrustedStore\Model\Config.php, line 33: XML_PATH_LAST_TIME_GENERATED_DATE ='google/trustedstore/last_generated_date';
So if open PHPMyAdmin or MySQL Workbench, run this query: SELECT * FROM [MagentoDB].core_config_data WHERE path = 'google/trustedstore/last_generated_date'; and modify the last runtime date so that you are not exhausting all the allotted memory for PHP.
Like I mentioned, version 14 is working great!

Requires a Tweak in the UK
Also the cron needs a little help to get going and this solution worked for us: http://www.dcjcooltools.com/blog/magento-extensions/the-nightmare-that-is-google-trusted-stores-for-magento/

I keep getting an error saying that the FTP credentials are wrong and they are not. I am able to log in using the same FTP credentials through my FTP client but not through this extension. HELP!

Doesn't work. Config options do not save
Bizarre. We installed it. Tried to enter configuration values for our GTS account. None of the options we enter will save and then it throws an error that our FTP info is invalid, which it isn't.
I hardcoded our ftp and config info in to confirm this and then it could connect, but none of the config info will save so it is completely worthless. I never even got to the point where I could try to figure out the CRON issues everyone else is talking about.
How about a fix here Google???!!!

Doesn't work out of the box!
We installed and configured the extension as described in the manual, only to find that the Cron Jobs responsible for generating and uploading the feeds didn't work! Spent quite a while fixing the extension and have released a fix. Read about how we figured out the problem and download the fix at:

Update to review below - works fine!!!
I left a review prior to this stating that the software does not generate any data in the feed. Well, that is not true. It does not tell you but the extension will not generate any HISTORICAL data. It will ONLY generate data from the date it was installed forward. Also, for some reason, it took 24 hours until it worked. Now, it works perfectly!!
I used the AOE Scheduler extension to automatically generate and upload them each day. So far, it appears to work fine!!! However, it has not been long enough to see if the AOE works, but that is separate from this plugin.
Overall, I recommend this plugin!!
