    Thank you for stopping in. Is there something I can help you with today?

    Client
    Hello

    Support
    Hi

    Client
    I am interested in possibly using your products. I am working on trying to link up my woocommerce store to Google Shopping

    Support
    Super… we can do that

    Client
    Also I am interesed in the Trusted Store Seal

    Support
    We have a plugin for Google Trusted Store as well… do you already have a Google Merchant Account?

    Client
    Yes I do

    Support
    Great. Then please feel free to install our WordPress plugin “CartProductFeed”.

    If you search under plugins in your dashboard, it should come up under that name.

    It will create feeds for Googl Merchant Centre

    Client
    ok
    I have that plugin installed

    Support
    Now you must navigate to “Create Feed” It’ll be available from the dashboard menu

    Client
    Ok, Do I have to buy a license key?

    Support
    No… you can get a basic feed of 10 products without a license
    this will let you know the product works
    You’ll want to choose your category and the google category

    Client
    the plugin is asking for a key and merchant type

    Support
    for merchant type, select Google
    then go straight to category (ignoring the license key)

    Client
    Ok

    Support
    Both category fields are filled in now? If so, you may proceed to “Get Feed”

    Client
    Ok yes it says there are errors

    Support
    The most common error is brand

    Client
    correct missing brand
    My main brand is ###

    Support
    This brand ####… is it entered in the products anywhere? Perhaps as an attribute or Custom Field?

    Client
    in the title for sure

    Support
    hmm ok. Perhaps you would want to just set one brand for all products in the feed. Are all 10 products the same brand?

    Client
    Ah I was trying to do more than 10 also I think

    Support
    To do more than 10 would need a license… can I set you up with a 5-day trial license?

    Client
    Ok. If you can help me make everything work I’m in
    I have 130+/- products currently

    Support
    Super. Let’s revisit the brand situation. Shall we say that most of your products have the brand Husqvarna, but not 100%?

    Client
    yes

    Support
    ok… so please visit Manage Feeds. Locate the feed you just made and click “Edit”

    Client
    ok

    Support
    Please located the Advanced Commands box near the bottom of the page

    Client
    got it

    Support
    Within this box, enter:

    setAttributeDefault brand as “###”

    then press update

    Client
    got it

    Support
    Press “Get Feed”… can you link the feed file to me?

    Client
    http://www.###.xml

    Support
    Thank you. I see the result….
    this product: ^^^^^
    it will need its own brand… can’t be ####

    Client
    #### makes it but it is a Kawasaki engine

    Support
    so you should edit the product… put a custom field on that product.
    name: brand
    value: Kawasaki

    Client
    Ok
    now what?

    Support
    Please return to Manage Feeds > Edit
    Click Get Feed again and verify that the correct brand shows

    Client
    my website is not letting me edit the product
    it is acting funny

    Support
    hmm
    It’s acted in this way before?

    Client
    no
    only seems to affect that product

    Support
    can you explain the symptoms in detail?

    Client
    In my dashboard under edit product
    nothing works. It is not clickable

    Support
    And only that one product is not clickable?

    Client
    yes I can edit other products

    Support
    I’m not sure about this one. Perhaps the product is currently being edited and is locked

    Client
    I think I got it a different way
    Ok I think its ok now

    Support
    Now you should submit your test feed to your Google Merhant Account

    Client
    http://###.xml

    Support
    You have somehow mapped the brands to g:gtin
    please reset that mapping
    g:gtin is dedicated for upc values

    Client
    no idea what that means
    i didnt see upc values as an option

    Support
    Ok then likely there are no UPC values in your woocommerce.

    Client
    ok

    Support
    please select (reset) for the g:gtin row

    Client
    there is sku

    Support
    okay sku can be mapped to g:mpn
    and also map brand to g:brand

    Client
    http://www.###.xml

    Support
    It looks better

    Client
    ok
    sorry I am slow

    Support
    You’re getting it

    Client
    yes
    so now submit that feed url to the merchant account

    Support
    One more thing

    Client
    ok

    Support
    There are some missing g:mpn (sku) values… google ideally needs the mpn (manufacturer product number)
    This can be entered in the sku field. If this value is missing the next option would be to map from id (not preferred but it will work)

    Client
    so I just need to make sure all product sku’s are loaded?

    Support
    That is right

    Client
    that will take some time

    Support
    Again, if you are just testing, you can select the ‘id’ and map that to g:mpn for now

    Client
    lets do that

    Support
    ok

    Client
    ok I changed

    Support
    Get Feed again

    Client
    http://www.###.xml

    Support
    You can now submit this to Google
    In GMC

    Client
    ok
    so how can I update to Trusted Store and list all my products?

    Support
    Trusted Store is something else, this will load your products to Google Shopping
    Trusted Store is basically a badge on your website, granted by Google
    do you have an account google.com/merchants

    Client
    I know what it is just not sure how to get it

    Support
    ok, you can use our GTS plugin to accomplish that

    Client
    ok
    Not seeing where to upload the feed in merchanct account
    I see add feed

    Support
    yep

    Client
    and went through that but never gave me an option to upload the file

    Support
    you’ll need to select ‘automatic pull’

    Client
    got it
    So now what?

    Support
    Now you need to tell Google to fetch the feed. Click the data feed and then ‘Fetch now’

    Client
    ok
    says 10 feeds processed

    Support
    Great

    Client
    but it says I am missing shipping information?

    Support
    Those can be configured at the account settings… Settings > shipping
    I’m guessing Tax as well

    Client
    in Woo commerce?

    Support
    Merchant account settings

    Client
    oh ok
    ok I correected
    try to refetch?

    Support
    Was that the only error?

    Client
    yes

    Support
    Shipping changes will take ~5min to take effect, you can try another refetch

    Client
    ok
    Can we update the number of products?

    Support
    Number, yes.. but since you’re using the free version it’s capped at 20
    10

    Client
