Trying to verify your store is so hard. If you're using Shopify don't bother. I like this idea, it just needs a one button fix - click to verify - would be good.

I've changed my review of this app in the hopes of saving Shopify store owners some money and aggravation. To be clear, Shopify's code has worked well for me. The problem is the crap Google slips in and charges you for. See this post for more details: https://everythingtiny.com/blogs/news/google-sells-guns-for-fun

Original 4 star review below:

A convenient app to send your products to Google Merchant. Like a garden, it takes some weeding, though. You have to check AdWords and Merchant daily. Add negative keywords for things that don't apply to your store. For instance, I sell a pewter saltine cracker sculpture which is in Google's sculpture category. Google sent me several clicks for "Zesty saltine" at $2 a click -- driving expensive unqualified traffic to me for the wrong category and description. "Zesty saltine" was added to my negative keywords the next day. Be forewarned, Google will take your money faster than a casino if you don't manage your merchant center and AdWords accounts.

A feature I would like to see added to Shopify's app is the ability to exclude specific items from the merchant center feed. I have to manually delete items that I don't want to advertise so I don't get charged for ads that drive unqualified or expensive traffic to me. I sell some items that have "tool" in their description. That puts me in competition with deep pocket bidders like DeWalt, PorterCable, Lowe's, and Home Depot, which is a waste of money for me.

I would give the app 5 stars if I could exclude products from the Google Merchant feed because it would save me time and wasted ad dollars.

Horrible app. Tells us we have hundreds of errors without saying what to fix or making it easy to fix. We've spent countless of hours fixing errors without any luck. Why have this app in the app store if it doesn't work properly?

I have 5000 products and 3000+ have google category error but there is no bulk filter option.
Like filter as product type,vender.

Tried Everything. Keeps getting errors

- Variants need a Color option. Learn more.
- tax can't be blank.
- unknown can't be blank.

1. Single products dont have color variants, I cant add color variants and confuse the shoppers with just one color option in the menu menu.
2 - Already have the tax box clicked but still get this F** Message. Plus what if the price already includes the tax?
3. WHAT IS UNKOWN? looked through everything, Manually checked setting and scripts.

So its IMPOSSIBLE to get items listed to Google with this app

We are told that the Shopify Google Shopping App does not support the promotion_id field for Google Merchant Center--even if a metafield is created in your Shopify store. This is a required field to utilize Google Merchant Promotions, so its absence basically renders the app useless.

Google Shopping supported countries/currencies are not up-to-date!

Probably one of the worst apps in the store. Barely functional, and requires you to set things up that are irrelevant to what your trying to do (beyond verifying the website). How about letting the app user drive what needs to be done???

dont know how to verify website, shopify should help to do, it's difficult to setup!
