There are a few option for what you Google will let you use as a GTIN.  I use UPC for the Google GTIN.  I should probably only use the word GTIN to avoid any confusion.  But regardless of what the feature field is, how do you get that field inside a variant?  I will worry about exporting it later I guess, but I just don't see anyway of associating the feature field to actual Variants, only the "master" product.

Ok, this might work a little better:


Here the GTIN was automatically created as a feature when I added the Google export addon



See the variation after I built the combinations:


No where to add the GTIN at the variant level.  So, here's the export and you will see these variations do not show

First, sorry if that came out the wrong way.  I was really frustrated with cs-cart customer service at the time. @tbirnseth, I apologize for being snippy.  


Yes, I figured out the part you referenced above...but when you do that and export your feed, 1) do all your variations show in the feed? and 2) does adding the feature "UPC" show for each variation? I can only see it at the main product level...not the ability to add it at the variation level...which it is necessary to add some sort of acceptable GTIN in the feed.

tbirnseth, you are correcting us, but aren't really correct. Basically, the GTIN is an umbrella name to identify one of many different types of unique identifier standards "The Global Trade Item Number, GTIN, is an identification number that may be encoded in UPC-A, UPC-E, EAN-8 & EAN-13 barcodes as well as other barcodes in the GS1 System"  


But debating what it is and isn't is hijacking the original question.  The original question was how to place the UPC (an acceptable GTIN in Google's eyes) for each product variation.

UPC is a form a GTIN.  I understand what you are saying, but I cannot figure out how to map this feature field to a variation/combination.  I know how to do it to the main product, but not the created combinations.
