I am hiring experts on Fiverr to do Google Shopping for my website. They asked me to store images locally in stead of on Aliexpress, an also add full address and contact number on contact-us page, install SSL.
when the new plugin will be available? Victoria.
Google Merchant feed is one complicated piece of work. I have been working with google feeds and schema data for more than a year now and only about 4 months on dropshipping sites.
We developed our own plugin directly for this purpose. We have it running on 3 sites, 2 aliDS woo sites and another not related to dropshipping. The site in which we have 100% control of the products is working wonderfully. The 2 sites using alidswoo is working pretty well so far, but we do have issues with the non-consistent entry of variations and attributes.
Depending on the main google category you choose, you may find some attributes are required by google, for instance, things like sizing or color. We are working on modifications to allow this to function, albeit with some manual adjustments at publishing time.
Another area to think about is if you have products on your site in different google categories, you have to be able to alter those on a product per product basis. Another custom function we are testing in our plugin.
Also, it is not just google feed you have to worry about and setup. You need to make sure your schema.org data is proper (need to add things to woo output -woo3 switched to json and it is missing stuff) and that your conversion tracking and re-marketing are all properly setup.
Also, if you have a proper feed, you can use the same one with facebook products catalog.
But it is pretty sweet. We add products, and when published they get into the feed, every 24 hours google and facebook come along and update their product feed and push it out to webs.. once dialed in, its set it and forget it
