Good app that makes it possible to have your entire inventory appear as part of the Google Merchant platform. Works very well (you'll need an Adwords account, of course).

Still testing but looks promising

This app worked Ok, while it did help to sync the majority of our products across, we still had to manually fix up a small number of them. Overall, good app.

First off I do appreciate the app and it is still a time saver over inputting products into a Google sheet! That being said, a few simple changes would make it 10x better:
> The ability to view all products on one page for better bulk editing (e.g. assigning Google product categories)
> When you do make a change to multiple or single products now, it publishes then sends you back to the first page of products. Then you have to click back through to get to the page you were on. It should just refresh the page you were on.
> Add the ability to bulk edit fields like on the Shopify product page. Right now I can't see product pricing in order to segment using custom fields without going into each individual product page.
> Add the ability to save searches and search based on more fields than just the product name. Again, like the Shopify products view.

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.

works fine. I have not had any issues.

Nice app but doesn't fill category, adwords labels of the item and age group,gender of the target audience. This makes it kind of manual. One by one every product. But faster than using google merchant anyway.

This is great but seems we can only target one country (Australia) at a time and not multiple. If they can update it for multiple countries, that would be great. www.nimbleactivewear.com

Its pretty good app and easy to use but not sure if we are actually getting any return on investment...

A must have App for www.randomswag.com. It does require you to have variants when they are not needed. Over all it works like another sales channel so its worth adding variants to open up for more sales.
