Some Questions About Data Feed

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hello

I have some questions about data feed.

 

1. Data feed with different input method (like google sheet or ftp) can have the same name?

 

2. The feed of English countries also need create one feed for each country?

 

3. The same product can show in the feed of different countries? The information of product need change?

 

Thanks

(1) technically yes, google will not complain --
however, input methods should normally never,

ever, be mixed.

choose one input method and register only one, single, feed
per target-country, only once -- then use the same registered

feed for all updates and re-uploads and for all inventory stock.

 

a best-practice is to use a mix of letters and numbers for id; e.g.

abc123

and the id value must never, ever, change, once assigned to the

inventory item, regardless of how the feed might be submitted.


(2) depends on the website --

(a) only if the website supports a separate landing-page
with the proper currency, for the target-country, may a
separate primary-feed be registered for the country --

the website must have fixed-prices for the target-country,
must show the same price for all people in all locations,
and cannot have any automated currency-conversion.

(b) otherwise, if the website cannot support separate landing-pages,
with the proper currency, for the target-country, then only google's
automated-currency-conversion may be used -- but a primary-feed

for the target-country is not allowed.

(3a) yes -- the same product can show in the feed of different countries;

(3b) yes -- the product information must change for
each primary-feed submitted, for each target-country --

unless google-automated-currency-conversion is used --
in which case, a new primary-feed for the target-country
is not allowed.

all data submitted must be directly from the website landing-page --
the website landing-page must follow all the rules and policies for
the target-country, to avoid a disapproval or suspension, at any time.
