What is the current limit of products in Merchant Center feed?

 

Before it was like 100.000 products per file. Now, I just found some filesize limitation of 1GB.

 

Can somebody update me, please?

 

Thanks

limits are now based on file size
and how the feed is re-uploaded --

20mb using the gui directly.
1gb using ftp;
1gb using scheduled-fetch;
500mb for any compressed file.

the listing of issues (limit) in the downloadable-report remains at 100,000.

generally, if the feed reaches 50,000 items or so, a
new data-feed should be considered -- depending
on attribute details and file size.

per-item limits are no longer publicly published --
if a limit is reached a new feed may be registered
or a support-specialist may be contacted to either
raise the limit or request guidance.

first, you're welcome.

the file names should simply be unique --
there is no recommended convention.

as an aside, csv is not a documented supported format;
for the best results a .txt tab-delimited feed should be
registered and (re) uploaded; e.g.

inventory1-us.txt

inventory2-us.txt
https://support.google.com/merchants/answer/160567

the raw format (e.g. inventory1-us.xlsx) may be used for editing

before the .txt tab-delimited feed file is re-saved for re-uploading.

 

also, be certain all items submitted as in stock

are physically stocked in your inventory and

can be shipped in a timely manner.

Thanks for the reply.

If I have bigger files, how do I name them?

file_1.csv
file_2.csv

is there any convention?

Hello Celebird,

1) You said, that the file should be registered first. What about the case of a volacity of product count? Lets say I have registered two feeds. But from time to time I will only upload one feed - would that be any problem?

2) The file split is also allowed for XML file, correct? I assume that the xml file should only contain whole products and not half product information in the first feed and the second half of the product should be in the next file then, right?

 

3) Is there any file count limit?

1) Any feed that you upload or update lasts for 30 days. So you need to update the data feed at least every 30 days.

2) Yes you can split XML feeds and needs to be whole products contained in each grouped item.

3) Have not heard of a file limit count
