Hi Jeewan G

 

No, you cannot extend the expiration of items to longer than the default 30 days.

Why do you wish to do this? 

 

If your items and feed never change, it is imperative that no change occurs in pricing etc, you can place your feed on a URL and set a schedule for this to be fetched by Google before the 30 days period, so no interaction will be required by you. If your feed changes, in any way, then you would need to ensure you upload a fresh copy to the destination URL.

Hi Jeewan G

 

You are welcome. Most users have stock changes or modifications to prices or stock, so update more often than the 30 day period. 

 

It is best to keep your datafeed fresh in my experience, however, unless Google change it, you must upload at least once in the 30 days.

Hi

This link will explain all you need to do in order to have Google retrieve your datafeed from a URL.

 

In order to make your feed available on a destination URL, you must upload the feed with the exact name you have registered the datafeed within your Google Merchant Center Dashboard. eg.

 

http://www.sitename.com/datafeed.txt

 

Registered datafeed name - datafeed.txt

 

Please be sure if anything every changes in your store, you update this on the URL also.
