This extension allows developers to migrate their eCommerce stores into the new API to ensure that they come up in Google searches.

  • Replaces current Google Base API logic in Magento
  • Allows developers to define which products are sent to Google
  • Enables definition of how product attributes are mapped to Google

    Lots of trouble setting up/doesn't work After two days of testing we have not been able to get this running correctly. We were able to transfer data to google shopping, but it was rejected every time due to various errors. Unfortunately, there are no settings which could even help us adjust anything about the errors. Maybe it has something to do with our huge amount of heterogenous products, e.g. several attribute sets. Not working properly for us@CE 1.9. 2/5 Stars. June 18, 2014
    Quite + good After (complex) set up , i had to modify a little /core/mage/googleshopping/helper/price.php because i wanted to use the extension to show for GROUPED products the HIGHEST price of the groupe instead of the "from price". Just had to replace "<" with ">" in line 67 <code>if ($this->getCatalogPrice($subProduct) > $minPrice || $minPrice === null) {</code> i encountered several difficulties to add products in mass. Above 20 products in same time, the module froze and kept showing the turning (busy) icon and the mention "Google Shopping synchronization process is running" . Had to make a sql reset of the module with this command : <code>update core_flag set state='0' where flag_code='googleshopping';</code> But now i'm glad to have found your module. Good job !

    Works on latest CE This extension works on the latest version of Magento CE 1.9.0.1. It does everything it's supposed to, so I do not understand the negative reviews. ? =/ May 26, 2014
    Please send me the files I have used this extension with great satisfaction! Now i updated to a clean Magento 1.8.1 install. Tried to copy the files from old install, but can't get it to work. Could you please send me a zip with the extension files so i can manually install the module? Regards! March 27, 2014
    Works Great! Hi! Dont know if there is developer support. Anyway works fine on latest Magento Community. Thanks. March 8, 2014
    Awesome! Thanks so much! I don't understand why there are so many negative reviews when this thing functions and works great--even for 1.8.1. Maybe it's all the companies that are selling the same thing for $120 and they want this free Magento add on around. You do have to be familiar with Google Merchant center (formerly Base) and how Magento's attributes line up with Google's. If you do, no problem. Great extension! Thanks! February 27, 2014
    Tricky Configuration It took me 3 hours of reading the merchant api documentation, looking at the configuration screens, tweaking settings and reviewing notifications & the merchant API dashboard before I got this working - but now that it's up it works great! Tips: Catalog > Google Content > Manage Attributes You have to setup attributes for the attribute set that is listed for your products on the items, which you can figure out by looking at the `Attrib. Set Name` column on the Items page (Catalog > Google Content > Manage Items). The required attributes must be mapped, the trickiest part of this is identifying the SKU (mpn), Brand and or UPC (gtin). I ended up creating a custom attribute for the brand and used the sku for the mpn. It's also quite useful to refer to the google merchant API Dashboard once you start attempting to add products - the plain Jane text is replace by a flash dashboard with very helpful information once you start making api calls to your account. Good Luck! February 23, 2014
    A lot of warnings from google when i start plugin A lot of warnings from google when i start plugin. Avoid usage of this plugin :( January 3, 2014
    Product submission selection options Hi, 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. December 17, 2013
    This Extension Does Not Work This extension does not work, if you try to use it, it will run endlessly... December 5, 2013

    BadAuthentication

    Avatar Image Url:: http://www.magentocommerce.com/images/avatars/uploads/avatar_358509
    Customer avatar
    Hello,

    I've been using your Google Content API extension from its early days, quite happy with it. However, when I installed its latest version on Magento v1.7.0.1, I'm getting this "...Unable to connect to Google Content. Please, check Account settings in configuration.Error: Authentication with Google failed. Reason: BadAuthentication" error although all account settings are correctly set in config. Do you know anything about this problem?

    I think it is worth mentioning that I've been able to add products to Google Shopping using that same Google account but using different extension (which actually uses an online service for submitting to google and other comparison shopping sites), so I don't think the problem might be in the Google account itself.

    Any help or insight into this problem would be greatly appreciated.

    Regards,
    Robert

    Answer: 
    I had the same problem. Here is the solution for the badauthentification issue: in your Google account settings go to the menu Security and allow all apps (also the not so secure ones) access to your account.

    Now, that this problem is solved I am faced with the required_destination one. Let's see there surely is a solution for this one as well...

    Answer: 
    We've all had this problem from time to time.

    Sounds like there is a maintenance flag.

    There will be a file called maintenance.flag on the home directory on you server.

    Delete that file and you're good to go. What happens is why you install applications, you site has this temporary flag and then deletes it. If for some reason you already had the program, or something else made the program not run as intended, the flag gets left.

    Hope this helps!

    We are an apparel / clothing company with many different sizes of our clothing. We want to use Google Product Listing Ads but we are struggling to get it setup correctly. We added required fields such as Color, Gender, Age Group, Size to the Google Content Shopping > Manage Attributes for the relevant product types.

    But, we are using configurable products with simple products (not visible in catalog / search) attached to do the sizing for variants. So, when we upload the products to Google base, the simple products upload fine as they have all the correct attributes, but they fail the upload for the configurable product because it doesn't have a size associate to it.

    So, does the product feed that this creates automatically set an "item group id" like google suggests for product "variants"?

    How should this situation be handled to get them all uploaded.

    Answer: 
    Don't upload the configurable at all. We added a new attribute "item_group_id" and filled it manually for every simple product with the SKU of the configurable. And did the mapping for the item group id. it shouldn_t be that large effort to do this automtically in code I think, like pseudo code: if (is_simple) {itemgroup_id=configurable->sku()}
    I am not sure, but it seems to me it is not that problem to just upload one simple product per configurable and leave the other sizes out. your product will be found regardless of the size submitted. I don't find a field in google shopping where one can choose the size, nor do I think someone uses this. A normal customer just searches, looks at the pictures, and then clicks. (Just assumption)
    We also submit the "name" of the configurable product instead of the name of the simple product.

    Why is it no possible to choose "Custom" under the Google Attribute set mapping.

    I now can only select from this list:

    Apparel & Accessories
    Apparel & Accessories - Clothing
    Apparel & Accessories - Shoes
    Media - Books
    Media - DVDs & Videos
    Media - Music
    Software - Video Game Software
    Other

    However Google also has a group Custom for custom made products that don't need to contain any id's (UPC, EAN, JAN or MPN).

    My problem now is that when I sync, my products in Google Shop, it gives me error's back because the Id's are not valid.

    Is there any solution to fix this or is there a workaround ?
