GOOGLE MERCHANT

Please download the report and check the errors. Make sure you have matched your website categories with those approved by Google (in the add-on settings), edited your product attributes when necessary (for example, there should be "blue" instead of "002" or "blue002"), adjusted your shipping and taxes settings in your Google Merchant Center. Once you have donw this, please generate a new product fee, upload it to your Google Merchant Center and let me know the results.
I am wondering, do I need to change product "Attributes" or add needs attributes to the "Item Specifics"?
 
After many hours of failing to get the plugin to download the products. I figured out a solution.

I was able to upload 1000+ products by downloading two seperate .xml files and combining them into one. I generated half my categories on one xml sheet and the other half on another. Combining them both together and then uploading it to google merchant. Just edit/ copy and paste them via WordPad editor into one xml file

hope it helps!

Does modifying product attributes affect synchronization?

Does anyone know, is it possible to set a different image for the Google feed than the one showing as featured image on your website?

@Dimitriy Strekalov, I know there are already feed management tools that provide this option.
I'd like to have a clear white background image on my website, however, to stand out from the competition in the shopping results it might be better to have an image which grabs the attention.

Therefore, it would be great if you can select an image which has to be crawled by Google.

Unfortunately, this issue is more likely caused with your certain unusual Hosting settings. I've already sent you an e-mail regarding this issue, please check. Or, you can send me a PM with your CPanel access details so we can investigate your issue. Also, regarding your question about missing Products in your feed, I'd like to mention, that some of your product has no attributes. Items must have at least one attribute (it may vary from category to category, please check Google product feed specification) Feed cannot be generated for simple products (i.e. products that do not have any variations).

Similar problems to the once above, such as lots of items missing.

1) Can one edit the xml file and manually add single products (by just picking an unused ns1:id number at random)?
2) I can't figure out an easy way to get the free shipping field working, thus lots of "Missing value [shipping]" right now
3) Taxes is also a small problem, as I want to add VAT for some country

I can send CPanel access.

Hello.
1) XML file is not supposed to be edited the way you suggest, unfortunately.
2 and 3) Shipping and Taxes information is not collected or generated by our Google Merchant add-on and you can set these settings right in your Google Merchant Center account.
 
Hi, I am having trouble linking my Google Merchant Center account to my Google Ads account. In Google Merchant Center, I've done the shipping and tax, the product feeds, and requested Account Link to my Google Ads account. In Google Ads, I've done the Campaign. But in Google Ads, I can't seem to find where it is to accept or confirm the Link Request.
