Biggest gripe is that you can not exclude variants from the feed. Other than that I guess it is ok, but nothing special.

Beware the app doesnt have any option to specify if the tax / GST gets added to the product price when setting the "price" attribute in the field. Google has recently made its "price" validation mandatory to check the final check out price and is disapproving feed items and eventually suspending account because of this issue.
My merchant account is now suspended because my INR based site's data feed isn't including the tax amount. The app needs fixing ASAP otherwise abstain from using this app.
Loads of issues setting it up and almost gave up on the whole thing. Eventually once I got it going it's good but the functionality is limited compared to using your adwords account.
I have used better apps - the set up can be quite confusing and take some time. The shipping configuration can be confusing and you often have to add some exclusions for free shipping and / or weight based shipping and request a manual review if the site is still coming up with errors in Google Merchant Centre. With that said, once you have overcome these hurdles, Google Shopping opens up another sales avenue that not everybody has access to (due to the effort / technical knowledge it can take to get the account set up correctly).
Runs slow, hard to navigate. Otherwise does what it states. Product approval incredibly slow. https://highzer0electronics.com/
The App works as far as we can see- the main issue is with B2B as Shopify do not support B2B's showing prices ex vat.
So there is a solution using Merchant centre rules.
You will need to create a Rule in the Google Merchant centre.
Sign into Google Merchant Centre and go to Products then Feeds and click on your feed name. At the top select Rules. Click on Create Rule and search for Price within the pop-up box and select it. Price not Sale price
On the Edit Rule screen click on Conditions under Edit source. Type Price and then select the value for your Price under the Feed Attributes heading at the bottom.
From the contains drop down select is greater than and then add 0 in the Type Click on the Set to box below and select your Feed- with Shopify this is an API.
The next step is add a price modification and so click Add Modification. Select Advanced operators (4th box with dots) and then Calculate. From the Arithmetic operator drop drown choose Multiply By x and enter 1.2 and click on the value in the Applied Value box.
Once you have done this select Save as Draft and then click Test Changes
This takes between 10-20 minutes- when done Test it and you are happy with new Feed-so prices increase by 20% and all good click apply.
Changes take 2 hours plus to take effect in Merchant centre-they state.
So far it seems fine, other than there's no search. If you have 100's of products how can you search and see if that product is approved and listed. You can't sift through pages and pages looking for it.
No one is mentioning that we received an email from Shopify saying we had no choice but had to make this move before end of Jan 2018. This page says it's beta. But we were told we had no choice and had to move and the other google shopping app was being disconnected.

I need to be able to change the GTIN because is rejecting all my products for that.
The google category is not that cool, not complete.
The merchant center link is not clear.
ONE SUPER IMPORTANT THING IS LABELS, WITHOUT THEM I CANNOT MAKE MY STRATEGY GOOD.
Many things to improve, hope you hear this comments because this is one of the first sales channels.
