Shopping feed suggestion: allow multiple currencies in 1 file?
Google shopping feed suggestion: why not allow multiple currencies in 1 file?
I've been creating our feeds and it occured to me that the only real difference is the curreny/price
Would it be an idea to allow multiple currencies in 1 file? And depending on the currency indicator Shopping picks the one it needs? It almost sounds logical...
Now when we add two <grice> statements it errors
and on the other hand it complains it is missing a price in the correct currency (whilst it is sitting just there
Would be a great and simple addition

Hi @Shirt H
Whilst I appreciate your suggestion, I can see some glaringly obvious reasons this would not be simple.
For instance, language can vary depending on countries being targeted.
Not only can a Datafeed only target one country, but each target country has a different set of policy and regulations that must be adhered to.
Some countries have VAT or Sales Tax required. Shipping Methods vary etc..
To make this answer a lot shorter than comparison after comparison,
If you were to take a DataFeed targeting the UK and then a Datafeed targeting Italy then the following would vary
English landing page
English Feed Data
Italian Landing page
Italian Feed Data
This also doesn't take into account, different URL's within the linked page and varying attributes based on the pre-mentioned policy/regulations per country.
So whilst it would be lovely to submit one DataFeed and have Google automatically use the values to display your products in the necessary places, this would not be a case of simple and rather more complicated that you expect.
It would also make the one DataFeed needing to be submitted much more complicated.
