From "Products" section to Feeds
I am using Shopify as my webstore platform. I was able to load all of my products onto the Google Merchant Center. I can view them all under the "Products" Section. But what I want to know is how can I take them from the "Products" section and create a Feed so that I can start using adwords.

a feed is not necessarily required.
physical inventory product-data
may be submitted using a feed
or google's content-api.
regardless of how items are submitted --
after items are processed the items can
then be seen within the products-section
of the merchant-center-account.
if items are seen within the products-section
of the merchant-center then, shopify is likely
using google's content-api to submit the data.
the best likely course would be to contact shopify support
directly, to verify how exactly items are being submitted.
also, checking the api-diagnostics section
within the merchant-center-account, is
another way to help verify if the items
are being submitted via the api --
if shopify support indicates that a feed is required
then, simply follow shopify's instructions exactly.
after shopify verifies the items are being submitted properly --
simply link the two accounts and create a shopping-campaign
and product-groups within the linked account:
items that have a searchable status, under the products-section
of the merchant-center, should be seen within the linked account
approximately 72-hours after the data is submitted -- and can be
added to a product-group and assigned a bid.
items that have enough bid and quality to win a slot
in the auctions can be seen as a product-listing-ad.
