Creating a Google Shopping Data feed for CS Cart - YouTube



Wanted to create a short video on how to create a Google Shopping Datafeed with CS Cart's Datafeed plugin. What do you think?

Great tutorial! Thanks!

Great tutorial… I'm running into one problem regarding the shipping attribute… I have my data feed mapped to the Shipping Freight field and it grabs the shipping cost no problem… The only problem is it is not conformed to Google's format…

ype Each delivery attribute group consists of four sub-attributes: Name Requirement Description Examples country required The country to which an item will be delivered (as an ISO 3166 country code). The default value for this attribute is your feed's target country. US region optional The geographical region to which a delivery rate applies, e.g. in the US, the two-letter state abbreviation, ZIP code or ZIP code range, using * wildcard. MA service optional The service class or delivery speed Ground price required Fixed delivery price (including VAT) 6.49 USD Note: You can submit multiple values for this attribute. Text/Tab-delimited Separate each sub-attribute with a colon and each delivery attribute group with a comma. Do not enclose sub-attribute values within quotations. All colons, even for blank values, are required, i.e. three colons are required.

US:::6.49 USD

US:024*:Ground:6.49 USD,US:MA:Express:13.12 USD XML The four sub-attributes are country, region, service and price. Include each delivery attribute group as a separate attribute.





US

MA

Ground

6.49 USD





So my exported shipping price of “20.00” doesn't conform because it needs the subattributes… At a minimum, I need it to be look like



“US:::20.00 USD”

This default datafeed addon has its limitations. This happens to be one of them. In order to get what you are describing the datafeed addon would need to have a code change that is specific to Googles datafeed specifications. If you are looking for something more intense I would recommend buying a more robust datafeed addon.

I wanted to add that [url=“http://www.ez-ms.com/”]http://www.ez-ms.com/[/url] has a great datafeed addon that I presently use. I works flawless for me and would probably solve your problem. If it does not they do custom development also.

Thank you very much, very useful clear tutorial!!!

"US:::20.00 USD"

I have this same problem trying to export items to Google Shopping:

Invalid format for sub-attributes: shipping

Did you ever figure this out or anyone else know how?
