Creating Product Feed

Once you have your product feed file or url, go to the Products section of Google Merchant Center. Then click the add feed button (blue circle with plus) to create a new product feed.

Input Method

If you downloaded the zip file you will need to use the upload option, if you happened to do the extra steps to get the XML file use the "Scheduled fetch" option. 



Upload Method

First, you will need to provide the file name which can be named whatever you would like, just note that it does not accept spaces between words. You will need to use the underscore. Eg. Product_Feeds.

Next, select the option to manually upload the file, and click Select File. From there select the file you unzipped earlier and Save.



Scheduled Fetch Method

Like the upload method, name the file whatever you would like, just be sure to use underscores instead of spaces as mentioned before. Eg. Product_Feeds.

Next, select the frequency you would like Google to retrieve this file, then select the time when to fetch as well as the time zone.

Lastly, you'll need to paste in the XML you retrieved and Save.

Pending Products

After the merchant center is done processing your product feed (which can take a few minutes), your products will show in the list area with the status of the product. You can click the title of the product to see the more details about the product and status.
