We update our feed daily and items go in and out of stock. How do I make sure only items in stock are shown on Google Shopping?

 

Thanks

Hello,

 

Here is some information that should help :

" The availability and prices of your items can change quite frequently, and you need to make sure Google is notified of these changes as they happen. You can find advice on providing the most up-to-date or fresh data here." 

"

  • 'out of stock': You’re currently not accepting orders for this product. (Important tip: When your products are out of stock on your website, don't remove them from your data feed. Provide this value instead)."

Also this is important for your case :

"If you update your website multiple times per day (or continuously), submit your feed multiple times per day. We recommend you submit, at least, early in the morning, around noon, late afternoon and in the evening."
