about the only way for a merchant to schedule
an upload using the content-api is server-side --
using the server's innate scheduling mechanism,
such as cron, task-scheduler, or some similar
integration with the inventory or cart system.

scheduled-fetch only applies to a registered feed (file) --
with a scheduled-fetch, google uploads data via a file.

the content-api has no such concept of a scheduled-fetch --
with the content-api, the merchant uploads data via an insert.

the content-api can be used to create a
scheduled-fetch for a registered feed-file.

google's scheduled-fetch feature cannot be used to insert any api-data.

 

as an aside, the google-feed-api is not supported

by the merchant-center and has been replaced by

the google-content-api-for-shopping -- neither api

can use a scheduled-fetch to insert data.

Hi Vijay,

 

Yes, you need to create a CSV/xml feed URL, That URL should automatically update the products.
Then you can add this url in the merchant center. 

 

Submit data feeds via Scheduled Fetches

Hi @vijay c,

 

One way to update your products is by writing a custom script to update via the Adwords API, but there are other solutions, like submitting a feed via FTP or SFTP. This process can be automated.

 

I hope that helps!
