Google Shopping Promotion Using Google Shopping Shopify App

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Trying to set up Promotions for my Shopping ads, but Merchant Center wants feed url, etc. Since I use Google Shopping App within Shopify, the feed is automatically generated and sent to Merchant Center through Google API. 

 

Shopify says to go to API dashboard, but I can only find API diagnostics within Merchant Center. 

 

Any help is appreciated.

the promotions-feed is entirely separate from
the product-data submitted for shopping-ads.

the promotions-feed must be created, registered, and
submitted, separately from any shopping-ad product-data

sent to the merchant-center.

if there are only a small number of promotions, then the promotions-tool,
under the promotions-dashboard, within the merchant-center, may be used
to create individual promotions, rather than a promotions-feed.

to access currently submitted product-data, navigate to the products-list-tab
within the merchant-center, and click on an item's title, or search for an id:
https://merchants.google.com/mc/items

however, a promotion_id will usually need to be added to both sets
of data -- the submitted product-data and the submitted promotion.

if the api is being used, by a third-party, to submit the product-data,
then the third-party will need to be contacted directly -- to add the
promotion_id details to the appropriate submitted items; in this case,
shopify-support would need to be re-contacted directly.

 

as an aside, in some specific cases, a feed-rule may sometimes

be used to add the promotion_id to the submitted product-data --

before creating or submitting the promotions (feed).

otherwise, a support-specialist at google may be contacted:

the best likely course is to contact shopify

support directly, or google -- this is mainly

a peer-to-peer forum and forum-members

cannot look into any account details.
