Merchant Center - Upload Feed as Test Option Missing

What happened to the "upload feed as test" option we had for feeds? The debugger tool is gone and now this option isn't showing up for me anymore. Is there a way to test a primary feed via upload in GMC?

And.. it's fixed. This is the second time I've had this issue. Is there something that needs to be turned on from a Google admin side? Both times I've submitted a request to my Adwords rep and it gets resolved within 24 hrs.

Yes there is, and your screenshot actually shows that is the test feed upload system.

You need to upload a hard copy of your data feed if you want to test it.

 

The old system no longer exists.

 

Hope it helps.

Hi Emmanuel,

 

 Are you saying that if I upload a feed for test using the system in my screenshot it won't overwrite or interrupt my existing live feed?

 

Thanks for your help,

 

Caleb

When you go to the next step after uploading, there is a test check box before you submit.

 

Have fun.
